Star Wars is one of the most popular film franchises of all time, so surely it was only a matter of time before someone took it upon themselves to make a themed range of biking gear.

Motorcycle gear manufacturer UD Replicas have stepped up to the plate and created a striking leather armour suit cloning the classic Stormtrooper look.

The suits, which are made of leather, ensure full protection for riders, as well as being the ultimate in biker geek chic.

This armour is sure to turn heads and maybe even convince members of the public that they've spotted an extra from the next Star Wars movie.

Many of the suit's components are adjustable for comfort to suit all body types, although sadly the helmet has not been designed for road use.

Available in shadow Stormtrooper black or classic Imperial white, keen fans will have to be quick as only 500 will be produced with the total set costing $1,276 CND (£806).

To see the armour in full watch the video below:
