Here is a quick look back at Alvaro Bautista’s special helmet design for the 2013 Valencia MotoGP.

Bautista doesn’t hasn’t really had too much screen time in recent years in MotoGP due to the fact that he hasn’t been a top 6 regular for some time, so you may not have seen many images of this helmet, but we love it. Recent performances hint that might be changing a bit in 2017…..we hope so at least.

Anyway, let’s step back to 2013 when Alvaro Bautista pulled some special graphics out of the bag at Valencia to celebrate and pay tribute to his family, including a stork dropping in a new addition.

Rizla Suzuki rider Alvaro Bautista is racing with a new custom Shoei helmet that was designed by Troy Lee Designs to support for the people of Japan following the tragedy there earlier this year.

This beautiful paint-scheme has been created by Troy Lee Designs’ Japanese designer Maki Ushiroyama and features all the flags of the fourteen countries on the MotoGP calendar, with pride of place going to the Japanese ‘Nisshōki’ or ‘Hinomaru’ – as it is more commonly known – on the top of the helmet. The colours of all nations is to represent the global support for Japan following the tragedy in March and an added message in Japanese translates as ‘Ganbare Nippon’, which literally means ‘Cheer up Japan, do your best and don’t give up!’

Bautista will also use the same helmet to race at the Indianapolis MotoGP – after which, it will be auctioned to raise money for a Japanese charity involved in the relief aid.
