Product Information

Alpinestars GP-R Perforated Leather Jacket

Alpinestars describes it as ‘race derived’ and that’s a good way of putting it. The GP-R Perforated Leather Jacket has a number of racing performance features but not so many as to ruin streetability or inflate the price to insane levels. But don’t take this as code for a lack of safety, the GP-R has CE approved shoulder and elbow armor, shoulder sliders and PE padding in the chest. Numerous stretch accordion panels and a more American fit help with movement on the bike and while storage isn’t overwhelming, it is there and easy to reach. With the GP-R Perforated Leather Jacket, think of it as summertime performance and quality that is accessible to the everyday rider.

Sporty warm-weather jacket

Pros: Typical Alpinestars quality, style, and protection Cons: Narrow-ish temperature comfort zone - when it's hot, you're gonna sweat I purchased this as a warm-weather jacket to go with a cool-weather jacket - my first time going with seasonal jackets. I had high expectations for the Perforated GP-R's suitability for hot summer weather - maybe too much so, as it is a full-leather jacket. The vents and perforations help, but the leather is heavy and thick - though that's great for protection. Over a t-shirt and with vents open, I'm comfortable up to about 90 deg F, but above that I'm cooking. That said, it's tolerable, so I'm not going to buy a textile mesh jacket that would be better for extreme heat but offer less protection. The GP-R does make safety a top priority with CE-rated shoulder and elbow/forearm armor plus external plastic shoulder sliders. You have to buy the Nucleon chest and back protectors separately - which I did. They install easily and fit comfortably making for protection that is about as good as you'll find in a street-oriented jacket. Fit and style are typical Alpinestars - excellent. On my slim build, fit is properly snug and true to chest size and arm length - about as good as if it was custom-tailored. If you're portly in the middle, it may fit tight there - though the GP-R does have Velcro waist adjustment straps, so that might help. The elastic panels work impressively well to allow freedom of movement on the bike, as does the low-profile padded collar. The sporty styling looks good to me -especially in the white/black/red one I got.
