RS Taichi GMX Motion Motorcycle Jacket

Motorcycle Leather Jacket

True to its name, RS Taichi’s stylish GMX Motion jacket gives its wearer unencumbered movement on or off a motorcycle, efficient venting and a wind-stopping liner jacket to fend off chilly weather.

Built on a tough cowhide leather shell, the Motion has accordion-style, flexible leather action panels on the shoulders, elbows and down the midsection of each side to allow unrestricted movement.

For even more mobility – whether carving corners or walking around an event – this high-tech jacket also has pliable, easy-stretch Shoeller Keprotec material running down the front and inside each arm. Dual-snap waist adjustment and elastic knitting on the collar add further tailoring and comfort.

The Motion’s front, upper arms and shoulders are perforated for warm-weather riding. Additional cooling air comes in via RS Taichi’s exclusive T-AIR shoulder venting. To stop the airflow while combating cooler temperatures, simply zip in the inner liner jacket for an efficient second layer of weather protection.

For the utmost in modern protection and wearability, the Motion has removable and adjustable CE-approved armor on the shoulders, elbows and back, a moisture-wicking mesh lining, aerodynamic rear hump below the neck and 3M Scotchlite reflective material to increase nighttime visibility.

Also setting it apart from the crowd, the Motion jacket incorporates RS Taichi’s Chest Protector System, which accepts a trio of snap-in chest protectors. This optional armor comes in a six-layer honeycomb version; hard plastic armor with impact-absorbing foam; and a more flexible, perforated-foam protector in a triple-honeycomb construction.

Available in a limited-edition green & black version, the Motion also comes in basic black, black & red or white & red color schemes in European sizes 46 through 58 for $539.95.

Matching pants, with a zipper that connects them to the Motion jacket are also available for $479.95.
