What leather

Back in the day I pulled both seats for this 1078 from Brutale Starfighter. Anyone happens to know what kind of miracle leather did MV use for Starfighter? It's been going on for years, withstanding all sorts of nasty: sun, water, heavy detergents, plain wear, and is still looks almost exactly as the day I got it (86k km on that bike, half of that ridden with a passenger). The rear seat wasn't fastened properly, fell and got damaged unfortunately and in need of re-leathering but I don't think I have ever seen leather of that kind anywhere. Is it possible to get the it from any place? What was it, even?

is it the alcantara portion your speaking of (like suede)? Alcantara is a synthetic clothe and it is a bit spendy but does all of what your saying. I have it in my Mercedes SL 55 AMG and looks the same as it did day one off the showroom. Luimoto sells a version of their own Alcantara and I have had great success with that.
