AGV last year joined the bandwagon of retro helmets with the X3000 and have now added this limited-edition tribute to the legendary 15-time world motorcycle champion, Giacomo Agostini.

Link International spokesman Don Nicholas says Australia will get a limited number of the X3000 Ago helmets at $999 by June.

He says they can be ordered now at any store stocking AGV helmets.
