Lorenzo signs with HJC
2012 MotoGP World Champion Jorge Lorenzo has signed a deal to wear HJC helmets from 2013.
Last week we reveled that Lorenzo had left the Nolan group and had signed a lucrative deal with HJC. Since then it has been confirmed that the double MotoGP World Champion has signed a deal with the Korean manufacturer.
A deal believed to be in the region of 1,000,000€ (£822,122) would be paid to the Spaniard yearly.
The signing of Lorenzo is a real coup for HJC who have been making helmets since 1971, and today are the largest producer of helmets in the world.
The Korean brand already have Ben Spies in MotoGP, but the Texan was marred by visor problems in Le Mans and the Spaniard will hope he isn’t on the receiving end of such misfortune as he defends his 2012 crown.
