Marc Marquez and his SHOEI® X-Twelve lit the Moto-GP world on fire during their 2013 championship winning season as he became the youngest premier-class World Champion in history. Track Certified by the fastest rider on the planet, the X-Twelve’s incredible ventilation, superior aerodynamics, and ultra lightweight feel give Marquez the extra edge needed to compete on the sport’s biggest stage.
