coolest motorcycle jackets 2017

Much like 2016, the 2017 cafe racer scene again has proved hugely popular, manufacturers have added new and extended lines to their ranges to cater for all tastes in this market. Here at ForMotorbikes we love the Richa range and our favourites of last year had to be the Richa Hipster jacket or the Richa Austin. This year Richa have added to the range with the Richa 60S and the Richa Goodwood, perfectly suited to the naked, custom, cafe racer or scrambler. Lovely vintage leather, stitching details retro accents, they have already proved extremely popular both with our customers and in the office.

Motorcycle jackets don’t have to be leather of course. In recent years, textile materials have really come on, with abrasion and tear resistance coming closer to the performance of leather. Last year we had the Richa Scrambler jacket, this year and sticking with the Cafe theme Furygan have really upped the game with the Furygan Aron jacket a superb blend of retro looks and protection. It’s in the same style as the usual retro leather jackets, but at a fraction of the price. Windproof and water resistant properties don’t detract from the urban look, whilst D3O to the shoulders and elbows keep you protected in the event of a spill.

The great thing about these jackets is that they look great with a pair of armoured jeans, so you can hop off the bike and still look the part. Be sure to check them out and let us know what you think.  Ride safe!
