Drudi designs American Honda Moto2 bike
Stars and stripes forever
Designed by Aldo Drudi, the American Honda Moriwaki M600 prominently features a large Honda wing and elements of the American Flag. Drudi also designed the racing leathers to be worn by the team’s rider Roger Hayden.
Drudi has a long history with the team’s manager, former World Champion Kevin Schwantz. Drudi began working with Schwantz in 1991, designing the starburst helmet Schwantz wore for the following season. Drudi has since designed other helmets for Schwantz.
“To work with Kevin, who is a friend and a champion, on a project that American Honda is supporting, it was a given that I was honored to be asked to create the graphics,” says Drudi. “This assignment has been particularly special to me because for a long time I have wanted to create a theme that focused on the stars and stripes of the USA, which turns out to be the perfect match for this project. It is a very exciting opportunity and a project that will be of the highest level.”
American Honda has also arranging Drudi-designed commemorative shirts and hats which will be sold to benefit Ride for Kids.
