Leather is the material traditionally associated with the bike. And for good reason, the history of the motorcycle jacket begins with the Perfecto, a jacket that was made of horse leather at its beginnings in 1928. If the cowhide, more flexible, quickly took over, the style remained.
The look above all
Choosing leather is above all a question of style and motorcycle in the sense of passion for the leather bomber jacket. Today, motorcycle leather jackets are vintage, possibly urban, even racing, but rarely touring. The Touring is for the big rollers, those who practice the highway and the road in all weather, all the year. For them, technical textiles exist with their waterproof membranes and their Germanic style.
