The answer to your 40F woes
I was in the market to replace my Jaws perforated jacket as it was really not meant for the fall/winter season; I ride a ZX6R which has absolutely no wind-protection too. I'm 6' 1" 205lb.
The Gunner has several features a colder weather or commuter will be interested in that are more a consequence of being water proof; the neck guard will keep your neck toasty but it also will keep your baklava from riding up and exposing your neck. It has a full-sleeve thermal liner and water proof napoleon pocket that is deep. The pocket fits my I phone 6+ and still had room for a wallet, easily. Between the liner and WP features you're getting nearly 100% wind blockage here. Fit is more relaxed, a 52 in my jaws leather is pretty tight but a 52 in this is a more roomy (to allow layering, it doesn't look baggy), it does still have a slight pre-curve, I would say keep to your sizing just expect a more casual cut. The full-sleeve liner is of the same material from all other removable liners A* makes, which is to say it's light, but does it's job well for it's weight. I particularly appreciated the extended back portion which prevents wind from entering in this area. I wish that the quality of sewing were better, I had to trim some loose thread from non-critical areas. The difference between my Jaws and this riding on the same day is significant. I was slightly miserable riding up to the store but completely unaware of the outside conditions riding back. It was a 30-40minuite ride on a mid40s day, by the end of it I could tell the fabric was starting to leech some cold so it should be great for short-medium distances at that 40-60 range. I would say that, given it's a pretty light weight jacket, any colder or anything longer than 2-3 hours in that lower temp range and you'll want something closer to a real tourer jacket with insulating material, or you would need to rely on heavy base layers.
The gunner's best qualities come from being designed as a WP jacket first, which makes a big difference as opposed to 'waterproofed' jackets I've owned. It sits in between a touring and sport jacket while remaining light enough and stylish enough that it works off the bike too. It's best used for the short to medium trips, such as to work, the shops, or a few hours up your favorite road. Any longer in any cooler weather though, you'll likely want to invest in something designed for touring, and I'm certain all the WP qualities will make it miserable for anything above 80F.

PROS: Quality, Wind Blocking, Comfortable, Good Looking

worth every penny
Bought this jacket after a recommendation from my local cycle gear guy. I have been riding for over 20 years and this is the best all around jacket I have ever worn. Zero wind penetration and toasty warm down to about 30 degrees. Great neck closure, and with a zip out of the liner and vent holes a 90 degree day is tolerable. Decent armor, excellent fit, works great on my cruiser and sport bike. My only complaint was the inner liner attachment in the sleave. I got a little overzealous taking it off and tore one of the buttons off. Easy fix for my wife, but they are a bit weak. If you love the fall and early winter rides like I do, this is a must buy. Great piece of kit.

Holds up
I bought this jacket two years ago when it was first released. I ride year round in upstate New York. This jacket kept me warm even in the toughest temps. I hit a speed limit sign at 100mph in this jacket. My torso and arms were fine. Which is more then I can say for the rest of my body. All the armor in this jacket was shattered. I contacted Alpinestars about it and they sent me a new jacket. This is now the only jacket I will wear.

Just road home at 40 degrees
They other lengthy review is pretty spot on. I just picked this jacket up and road home in windy, 40 degree weather. The only thing that froze was my fingers! Very happy with the results! I ride a sport bike and this jacket fit great even while in an aggressive position on the bike. No vibrations. No wind pockets. Nothing flapping around or overly lose. Create created fit yet still sporty. Doesn't look extreme but still doesn't look lame. Very happy about this good all around jacket.

PROS: Reflective Markings, Relaxed fit, Water Proof, Thermal liner, Sport Bike, Well Made, Plenty of pockets, Vented

CONS: Tall Neck Interfere With

BEST USES: Spring, Fall, Cold weather, Winter
