Scor­pion RP1-GP Z900 ex­haust £549

What’s good? Scor­pion’s RP1 ex­haust is Ec-ap­proved, and ti­dies up and light­ens up Kawasaki’s ex­cel­lent new naked no end. As Scor­pion’s flag­ship pipe it comes with a choice of Ti­ta­nium or car­bon con­struc­tion and a laser-cut ti­ta­nium link-pipe. What’s not? Don’t ex­pect mas­sive power or noise in­creases from this new Scor­pion sys­tem, as a lot of the si­lenc­ing and emis­sions gub­bins on the bike is south of the can and link-pipe.­pion-ex­

Rukka AFT Gloves £TBA

What’s good? De­signed for peo­ple who want the feel and ven­ti­la­tion of a sum­mer glove, with­out look­ing like they’ve just stepped from a race­track. Per­fect for ad­ven­ture and naked riders, there is leather in all the right pro­tec­tive ar­eas, but air-per­me­able fab­ric on the fin­gers, be­hind the knuck­les and on the wrist, so they should be cool. They also come with a two-year war­ranty. What’s not? By def­i­ni­tion, the amount of vent­ing means that they won’t be as pro­tec­tive as a full-on race glove, but Rukka stuff is al­ways great qual­ity.

Dyno­jet Power Com­man­der for 2017 Yamaha R6 £368.48

What’s good? The ad­di­tion of a Power Com­man­der to the 2017 Yamaha R6 will help it re­gain some of the power stolen from it af­ter it was adapted to meet strin­gent Euro4 reg­u­la­tions. Com­bined with a full ex­haust sys­tem and one of Dyno­jet’s down­load­able maps, or bet­ter still, a cus­tom one from a spe­cialised dyno op­er­a­tor, it should give more power and bet­ter re­sponse. What’s not? It’s not cheap and fit­ting is a spe­cialised job, un­less you’re a com­pe­tent home me­chanic. www.dyno­ Knox Phe­lix jacket £299.99 What’s good? This stylish women’s jacket is part of Knox’s lay­er­ing sys­tem, which means ar­mour and outer parts have sep­a­rate lay­ers. Knox claims this im­proves fit and safety and it also means it is eas­ier for the jacket to be worn in non-bike sit­u­a­tions. Con­structed from 1mm leather, it is cot­ton-lined and has leather in­te­rior pan­els. What’s not? For proper pro­tec­tion you’ll need to buy the ar­moured shirt sep­a­rately, which costs £109.
