Not sure about the new ones. The suits I have bought were originally sold at dealerships. The dealer I bought my bike from had some in stock......7 years ago.
Those older suits are very high quality Lookwell brand.

My understanding is any dealer can order MV apparal (leather suits) from MV. I am. Sure the new stuff is probably good.

You can't buy direct from the factory. Must go through a dealer.

Oh, and welcome to the family.

I used to be I just dream about it.

I don't know where You really found so many racing suits.
However there was a line almost ten years ago from CRC made by Lockwell in the Netherlands.
This stuff was top notch fabricated, top notch leather and everything was embroidered or actually made out of leather logos. Nothing printed.
The stuff was expensive and occasionally You find them as left over stock from dealers or at revlimiter for an example.
Later in 2007 launched MV Agusta a riding gear collection made by Spyke.
The stuff was somewhat cheaper made, printed logos and such.
I have only the gloves so I can't really speak about it but owners seam to be happy with it.
The contract with Spyke ended Years ago.
Here again occasionally are left over suits from dealers on ebay or so.
Other than that You find many knockoffs or illegal MV Agusta branded suits on offer on ebay, which are made in Pakistan.
MV Agusta presented a few pieces of a future riding gear collection at EICMA in November which should be made by Dainese.
But this stuff is not yet available and the sales strategy is not clear yet.

If my wish was to acquire MV branded leathers at the moment I would choose a new high quality off the shelf or custom set and then have MV logos applied in either leather or embroidered patches. Much greater range of options that way, and much easier to find your correct size.

Has anyone tried these ones? They say the quality is right up there. The very last post, a guy talks about the quality.
I don't need a suit or I'd think about it.
