The MSRP on these Brand New AXO Byway jackets was $450. This eBay seller in Canada has a limited number on sale for $102. Shipping to me in Colorado was $32 and I received it in 5 days.

AXO is an Italian company and their gear is as good as Alpinestars and Dainese. High Quality kit!

Get them while they're still available.......they probably won't last long. :eek: NOTE: the seller also has a Yamaha-logo BLAST Textile jacket for $58!

The sealed bag it came in had a Yamaha part #SPB-12JBW-BL on it and the colors are Yamaha colors, available in black with red, grey or blue.

Just Ordered the Black and red AXO jacket in Large. Thanks for the post.
No worries! It's a VERY nice jacket! Doesn't even need breaking in. Let us know what you think of it. There's no customs duty on it, either. That only applies for items costing over $200 and even then it's usually not charged, in my experience.

As mentioned in the listing, they are a Euro-fit and you should order one size larger than normal. If you didn't, you can still message the seller through eBay and change it. They ship next day, so it will probably go out tomorrow.

It takes this style back protector (STG, Revzilla and others have it):

Definitely jumping on this. I'm 6'1" 175lb and fairly slim. Thinking I need a large but not sure if I need XL since my arms and torso are pretty long, lol.

Thoughts?

edit: I ordered a L but messaged the seller and asked for his size input before shipping the order. I feel pretty confident that an XL would be too bulky/baggy on me. I wear a size Medium shirt and jacket most of the time so I went with the size Large AXO jacket.

Wait, go one size UP from the chart, or one size up from what you normally wear?! I fit fairly well in most of the measurements for the Large based on that chart, does that mean I should get an XL?
Yes. AXO jackets have a Euro fit, which means TIGHT!

I went up one size from this chart and it fit me perfectly. If I had just gone with the chart sizing it would have been way too tight.

I always have to go up one size when ordering European brand jackets.

If your actual chest size is a 40 the Large may fit you, but if it's a 41 you'd need to go up to an XL.

Sportbikegear has a video review and the model is 5"10 170 and wore a medium so hope you should be fine with large if you have slim arms. Fang is right about the euro fit though.

Just received my jacket. Got the large and it fits perfectly with the undercoat attached. For reference I'm 5"8 175lb. Very high quality even in the details. Soft collar and stretch soft cuff on the undercoat is a nice touch. As stated by fang no need to break in. Pretty beefy shoulder pads. What a steal!

Heavy box on Porch today ? Opened to my surprise the new AXO Jacket early. It's really really nice. Glad I stayed with the Large fits perfect. Sleeves length is perfect. Tight fit. Nice. I'm 5' 10" @ 180#s perfect fit Plus I'm trying to lose 5 more pounds.
Thank You Fang for the hook up $130 with shipping blows my mind for this.

They would have still been a great deal at $120 but were actually only $102. Even better! :)

Got mine today. Really happy with it especially for the price. Size is about the same as my Icon Overlord textile jacket. It is a little tighter fitting but that is a good thing for me personally.

Thanks for posting this Fang!
