to be honest looking at them again they do look a bit cheap and nasty. Think i'll stick with my Alpinestars MX1 suit and maybe get some MV logo's added.

That suit looks extremely weird. Even if you have bad taste. Not MV worthy...

I wouldn't want a suit without shin armour for road use, I don't know about typical track injuries, and I don't think these leathers have any. Armoured boots don't cover the whole shin. Brake your shin and it's 6 months in plaster, and for me several more months with a protective brace, plus the risk of surgery going wrong or infection.
Between me and the chap next to me in the hospital, his plate down the shin got infected so badly that the skin parted fully down the shin, exposing the metal plate, and my operation went wrong, ending in a partly paralyzed foot.

When I was on the Orthopedic ward seeing the motorcyclists coming in, lower leg injuries were common.
I have 3 suits with decent leg protection, and the armour from the knee to the lower shin causes no discomfort to wear.

I didn't take a look at the quality of the suit, so going completely on aesthetics it's not my cup of tea, but it's not actually that bad.

Actually, I think it looks better that the suit on http://www.revlimiter.it/shop/

The silver brakes the suit up and you don't end up looking like you have a big ass like the suit in the above link.

You need the additional colours to make the suit look like it has some shape. When I had my suit designed, it was something specifically pointed out to me, and when you look at both suits side by side, one looks better than the other because of it.

MV makes some beautiful bikes, but I haven't seen a good looking MV suit to go along with them.

I'm with George...

Justin;
you might not like the design of the LookWells (I do) but you won't find that quality anymore

there are 7 colors of leather on the red MV suit and the workmanship is flawless

most compliments come from little old ladies looking at them inline at the market

most fun.....going to the Ducati booth at a show, the guys choke and glare......but the models like them :drummer:
