A number of MotoGP riders took a break from their day jobs to take a turn on the catwalk, at a presentation organised by Arlen Ness in Casa Batlló, Barcelona. The event served to present a new collection of leathers for next season.

Present at the event were Kawasaki Racing riders Shinya Nakano and Randy de Puniet, alongside Chris Vermeulen and Makoto Tamada. The lower cylinder classes were also represented, with 250cc's Alex de Angelis, Hiroshi Aoyama and Jules Cluzel, and 125cc's Sergio Gadea and Hector Faubel.

Nakano and De Puniet were sporting the competition gear, whilst the other riders were decked out in casual wear by Arlen Ness and Berik. There was also a small exhibition of rider gear, alongside Nakano's Ninja ZX-RR and Tamada's RC211V.

The presentation was held in front of around 100 people, amongst them a number of MotoGP managers including Luca Montiron and Harald Eckl.
