Scorpion Tornado Motorcycle Jacket

Motorcycle Jackets

Constructed with a 600-denier outer shell and removable CE-approved armor inside the shoulder and elbow pockets, the Scorpion Tornado textile motorcycle jacket is designed to be a piece of tough, all-weather apparel.

As the name Tornado indicates, the Scorpion motorcycle jacket is intended for use in inclement weather. The ballistic nylon fabric is treated with polyurethane to increase water resistance, and the removable EverHeat liner keeps wind out.

Adjustable sleeve tension straps offer a custom fit and are intended for use at speeds exceeding triple digits.


To increase the utility of the Scorpion Tornado jacket, the AirVent ventilation system allows the air to flow when temperatures increase.

The AirVent system has two zippered high-flow air intake panels in the front of the jacket with two rear vents. It is intended to maximize airflow over the body’s core when the panels are unzipped and to seal the jacket when the rider doesn’t want cold air whistling in.


High-speed safety is provided by a full-length back protector pocket (complete with a P.E. foam insert) and all seams are sealed with Scorpion’s exclusive ExoStitch seams.

There are large zippered hand-warmer pockets and NightViz reflective panels front and rear on the Scorpion Tornado textile jacket.

Available in men’s sizes S-XXL, the MSRP of the jacket is $190 for size S-XL, and it bumps up to $205 for the XXL version. Color choices are black, red, and blue.
