Aerodynamics with the windscreen when you tuck. Also some can hold water blatters. You will notice your race and track oriented jackets have humps.

Looks pretty sharp. Nice pickup on that purchase!

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Yeah, mostly aerodynamic reasons. But also some added padding/cushion near and around the spine and neck areas.
