Heres a feature-rich motorcycle riding jacket to take you through spring on into summer at a price far less than youd expect.
Thanks to the rise in popularity of retro open face helmets like the Bell Custom 500, 3/4 helmets with a faceshield are getting more attention. They give those of us who want the fun of a retro open face, but with more protection. Last fall Scorpion introduced the EXO-CT220, a 3/4 helmet that combines many features of its high priced competitors but at the budget price of just $149.99.
Its always fun to check out new motorcycle products and test ride new bikes and I did just that a couple of weeks ago in Orlando, Fla., at the debut of a new motorcycle industry tradeshow held October 16-20, 2013. The American International Motorcycle Expo, AIMExpo for short, is the first of its kind in the U.S. that welcomed dealers, members of the industry trade, media, and consumers all in one place under one roof.
Scorpion rides the line between being slightly edgy to appeal to young hipsters and having just enough sophisticated style and protection to appeal to tried and true riders looking for gear that’s fun to wear but not outrageous. I recently tested a lightweight leather jacket that looks smart on both cruiser and sportbike riders. It’s the Scorpion Dynasty, part of the company’s EXOWear collection.
Add some flair to your motorcycle wardrobe with these fun new pieces from Scorpion! The manufacturer of top quality womens leather and textile riding gear iis introducing its fall 2011 collection with this new womens Lilly jacket. Its designed to complement the matching Scorpion EXO-400 Lilly helmet.
Even just a few years ago, a woman who was tall, large or curvy—or any combination of the three—had a difficult time finding riding gear that would fit well, protect and help her look good while riding a motorcycle. And if she wanted a choice of styles? Forget it. Like me, many women have stuffed themselves into mens gear for years just to be protected or ride in gear that just doesn’t fit quite right.
If youre a frequent visitor to WRN, you know I recently returned from two big industry trade shows, the V-Twin Expo, and Dealer Expo, where manufacturers display their latest products for the dealers who look for new items for their stores. Many of the motorcycling apparel manufacturers were at both shows displaying their new womens styles for 2009.
Scorpion burst onto the scene a few years ago with a line of helmets splashed with edgy graphics and an attitude to match. Last year, the company started making womens riding gear with lots of sass and pizzazz, part of its Scorpion EXO clothing line. I tested the leather Elektra jacket and Haley pants.
