Successive injuries have haunted Marc Marquez since the 2020 MotoGP season. The 29-year-old runner recently made his third comeback in as many years. Throughout this period, Marquez has struggled for consistent results.
Despite all this misfortune, number 93 remains one of the most popular and recognizable stars in the Grand Prix paddock. Alpinestars knows the six-time MotoGP champion still has what it takes to challenge for the title in 2023, and the new MM93 Track Leather Jacket combines the Italian gear maker’s dedication to protection with Marquez’s dedication to victory.
Based on the brand’s GP Force leather jacket, the collaborative piece adopts MM93 branding and accents in Honda’s signature red. Alpinestars embroiders a gray MM93 logo on the chest with red “Marc Marquez” script and a red Alpinestars badge on the left shoulder. At the rear, a red ‘Ninety Three’ adds a premium yet understated touch.
Minor design changes aside, the Track Leather Jacket takes after its GP Force parent. Cowhide construction provides maximum abrasion resistance while stretch panels on the sides, armpits and shoulders preserve the rider’s range of motion. Alpinestars doesn’t skimp on comfort either, with accordion sections behind the arms, waist adjustment straps and zipped cuffs customizing the fit.
A removable thermal liner keeps the MM93 Track jacket spinning throughout the colder months. If protection is your primary concern, riders can rest assured that Level 2 Nucleon Flex Pro elbow and shoulder protectors will soften the blow. The Lite DFS shoulder sliders also provide adequate impact attenuation, but customers can enhance the protective properties of the jacket with a chest/chest pad and Alpinestars Tech-Air 5 airbag system.
The AA-rated jacket also includes two exterior zippered pockets for personal items and a connecting zipper to the pants that can accommodate leather stockings. The MM93 Track Jacket is only available in one Marquez style colorway, but sizes range from 48 to 60 (European sizing). Priced at $569.95, the Sporty Jacket brings together the most recognizable brands in motorcycle racing at a reasonable price.
