Reviews and tests 15 March, 2017

We analyze...

The Alpinestars GP Plus R V2 is a premium sports leather jacket. It stands out for its comfort, protection and design. With this jacket you can ride by your bike with full warranty.

Materials and construction

The Alpinestars GP Plus R V2 is made of  bovine leather (1.3 mm thick), ensuring high durability and abrasion resistance. The jacket seams are reinforced for optimum resistance in case of fall or impact and have extensive panels of strategically placed elastic fabric for optimum fit and comfort.

The jacket features pre-curved sleeves to reduce fatigue when riding the bike, and also have elbows with elastic accordion panels to further optimize arm’s freedom.

Inside the GP Plus R V2 we find mesh fabric for optimum breathability, comfort and ventilation. In addition, on the inner side of the neck we also find a soft 3D mesh finished in neoprene that ensures great comfort for the biker.


The removable Bio Armor protectors on the shoulders and elbows with CE certification are the most remarkable in terms of safety. But also the shoulders have injected TPU slides, called GP LITE, with skin coating, so that the protection in that area is increased.

The Alpinestars GP Plus R V2 jacket has a chest compartment with foam padding, on which we can mount the Alpinestars Nucleon KR-Ci chest protector, although this is not included.

It should also be mentioned that the jacket has perforated padded panels strategically distributed to provide additional protection in case of fall.

Regarding the back zone, the level of protection is even greater, and in addition to the space with foam padding, we can mount a back protector Nucleon KR-2i and KR-1i – not included with the jacket – thanks to the Snap-on system to install the Nucleon KR-R back protector.

Finally, the jacket also features reflective details for better visibility in night driving or in low light.

Temperature regulation

The Alpinestars GP Plus R V2 jacket has two practical air inlets with zipper in the shoulder area that guarantee optimal regulation of the inner temperature.

Closure and pockets

The jacket has premium YKK zippers for maximum durability in both the central closure and wrists, which also feature a push button.

In addition to adjustable waist with Velcro straps, it also has zipper-fitting Alpinestars jacket-trousers.

With regard to the pockets, the GP Plus R V2 has two exterior zip pockets and three inner pockets, one of them waterproof, so that our valuables will be safe.
