MIKA KALLIO

 

MOTOGP

 

Mika Kallio, 20 years experienced rider in motorcycle races and current Official Test Rider for Team Red Bull KTM MotoGP, chose SAKARTDESIGN to design and create the graphics of his helmet.

We conceived and realized a design based on the Red Bull MotoGP colours, designing a strong visual impact highlighting the shapes of HJC RPHA11 model with red fluo graphics.

From the upper big red fluo logo “-36°” begins an elegant modular texture ending up to the backside of the helmet.

The final result, in an aggressive matt finish, reflect the nature and determination of a great experienced rider as Mika is.

The 2019 design restyling is based on a new Red Bull layout developed for the official KTM riders.

We are really satisfied and ready for the 2019 season, thanking Red Bull, Mika Kallio and the helmet supplier HJC Helmets for the confidence in our Racing Rider Design Service.

 

CAREER

 

Kallio has been Test Rider for the new Red Bull KTM Factory Racing effort. Kallio will first ride as a wild card in the 2016 season finale in Valencia – the first race experience for the all-new Rc16.

In 2017 he competed in 4 Grand Prix, Germany, Austria, Aragon and Valencia. In the 2018 season Mika will continue the development of the KTM bike and will compete in five GP as wild card.

In 2018, due to a bad injury suffered during the practice of German GP, Mika couldn’t compete on his planned wild card races; thanks to his strong determination, he has physically retrieved and developed the new KTM during the 2019 winter test and he is now ready to face the upcoming season.
