Corazzo Ventata Scooter and Motorcycle Jacket Review Corazzo realized that their Corazzo 5.0 was fast becoming the iconic scooter riders jacket - smartly, they did not venture too far from its design when they created the Corazzo Ventata. We love the Corazzo 5.0 jacket. If you can afford only one jacket and you ride in a variety of conditions, that is the jacket to get. The Corazzo Ventata is a superb warm weather jacket and can be supplemented with a sweater or hoody underneath for mor warmth when required or a rain coat over top is you get caught out in the rain. Available in black or silver. Highly recommended.
