Could be a number of factors. Different manufacturers have different fits (Euro vs. American cuts) and I'm also guessing less care/focus was put into the fit of the textile jacket with the liners since it's designed to be a warm weather jacket.

Euro cuts are almost always slimmer/smaller than US cuts.  You'd be hard pressed to fit a sweater under a correctly sized Euro leather jacket with the liner in.

Hmm. The textile is an American make, and my specific model touts 3-season wearability (it's a Scorpion Hat Trick), so I'm surprised it does run a bit small but requiring you to use both liners during the winter is probably key to the problem. The new leather is more of a Euro cut/style than my old leather but I'm liking that - so much stuff is huge thru the torso with little (if any) drop, and that sucks for riding.

Are clothing sizes ever completely congruent between different models?

Not my style of bike but that's pretty hot regardless.  If I decided to go the cruiser route, a bagger like this would be the way to go.  BUddy of mine bought the same model about 2 years ago and now he barely rides his sportbikes.

There's usually some difference, but this was notable, at least for me. The Scorpion's a tighter fit than the leather, despite being a size larger? Struck me as odd - it's the biggest disparity I've had between a pair of jackets.

MV Agusta Rivale looks sooo sooo soo sooo much better than the Multistrada/Hyperstrada/Hypermotard. Not sure what it's supposed to compete with, but it begs the question, "Why did Ducati make the xxxxxstrada so damn hideous????"

I also think this is what Yami tried to do and failed with the FZ-09, design wise. This is a really good looking bike.

I think the comparison should be against the Streetfighter, not the MTS which is more of an adventure bike

MV Agusta, the company, is currently for sale. Good luck getting parts if you have an off.

Again?  Didn't they get their independence from harley something like 3 years ago?

Nah the Brutale is the Streetfigher's foil.  This is more Hypermotard territory

Parts suppliers are usually third party. Not sure what an MV sale would have to do with that.

I'd be more concerned with the shitty dealer network. There's one about 30 miles from me but I imagine them not being somewhere like... Cleveland.

Just ordered a pair of the Alpinestars Apex Drystar gloves.

Took a short ride this weekend and my hands froze in no time.

That sucks.

 

Try those Furygans and let me know how it goes ;)
