Jorge Lorenzo $13,250 Gold, Jeweled Helmet - Web Exclusive

The Porfuera symbol on top is highlighted by approximately 1800 hand-laid Swarovski crystals.

Nov 29, 2010

Fiat Yamaha rider Jorge Lorenzo crowned his MotoGP World Championship with a win at the final round in Valencia on 7th November 2010, wearing an extremely special version of his X-Lite X-802 helmet.

The helmet caused a sensation around the MotoGP paddock, and to celebrate Jorge's stunning year, X-Lite will be producing a very limited number of handcrafted replicas.

The Lorenzo Valencia is finished in eight layers of paint, and the lustrous finish is produced by the careful impregnation of gold pigment.

The Porfuera symbol on top - which translates as 'on the outside' - is highlighted by approximately 1800 hand-laid Swarovski crystals, just as on Jorge's original.

Each helmet takes 96 hours of dedicated work by skilled artisans to produce, and will come complete with special presentation packaging plus, of course, the World Champion's signature.

Every one will be produced to order, with a price tag of approximately $13,250. A deposit is required for each commission, and lead time is expected to be around two months. Sizes available are XS-XXL.

The original X-802 that Lorenzo wore at Valencia was seen at this year's Carole Nash Motorcycle Live event in Great Britain. The show was opened by the new MotoGP World Champion, Jorge Lorenzo, who flew in to spark off a firework display to open the Event officially.

Lorenzo then joined a number of other racers and motorcycling celebrities to fulfill a busy schedule during the day, meeting fans and signing hundreds of autographs, as well as taking part in chat shows and entertainment on stage.
