The Mugello MotoGP always inspires many of the Italian riders to come up with a special one-off helmet design to mark the occasion, and many riders this year are choosing to pay tribute to Nicky Hayden in their designs.

Valentino Rossi used a football design to honour both Francesco Totti (his friend who retired from football) and Nicky Hayden, and Andrea Iannone has used his entire helmet to pay tribute to Hayden.

The design features a blue sky graphic with clouds covering the helmet, with the word ‘Nicky’ written in large letters across the top of the helmet. One side of Iannone’s helmet also features Haydens ’69’ race number, while the other features Iannone’s usual ’29’ race number.

A simple and effective tribute to Nicky Hayden who is greatly missed by the riders and fans alike.

Here is a 360 degree video of Andrea Iannone’s ‘Nicky Hayden Tribute’ helmet:
