Bell Unleashes 2009 Moto-8 Colorways

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. – Bell Powersports has unveiled its 2009 line of graphics for the Moto-8 motocross helmet that covers the full spectrum from mild to wild, and everything in between. From the artful contrast of pin lines and distressed colorblock on the ‘Tattered’ model to the reserved yet stylish race livery of the Nick Wey Replica to the outright insanity of ‘Psycho Manic,’ the new Moto-8s take helmet graphics to the next level.

“We’re always looking for something that takes the expected and puts a unique twist on it,” said Bell Creative Director Casey Potter. “I think we really hit the mark this year with designs that are eye-catching, distinctive and varied enough to match the many tastes across the spectrum of motocross riders.”

The Moto-8 has become a favorite of riders of all levels from top pro to budding amateurs with the likes of Grant Langston, Jason Lawrence and Adam Cianciarulo all notching championship titles in the helmet. For 2009, the Bell team is lead by James Stewart and a small army of talented riders who will vie for glory in the Moto-8.

The Moto-8 has an MSRP of $399.95.
