Alpinestars has always been known for its high performance protective gear for motorcycle and automotive racing, as well as other action sports.

Yamaha’s newly dubbed “dual purpose” motorcycle introduced untold hundreds of thousands to the sport of motorcycle riding, and spawned an entirely new market segment.
