That does look nice.
Too bad I live so far away, or I'd volunteer for a photo shoot!

Sweet looking seat, Aurelius!

Not yours! The one on your Multi. ;D

Thanks for your ongoing updates and the big reveal.

I`m interested in your initial impressions of how it compares to the already pretty-damn-good stock seat? Height? Comfort? Rider arse room?

Nice looking seat. I hope they get off their asses (rim shot!!) and get this thing to market soon. The stock seat is pretty comfortable but my ass is not - I start to get a little itchy in the britches around an hour in, and I think a broader, flatter seat will help. I had a call in today to check stock on the DP comfort seat, but that was before I saw your pix posted today. Hope they are available soon!

Nice seat. Do they make it for both the 2010-2011 and the 2012 model seats? The 2012 seats are different. They don't have the holes with the rubber inserts. A 2010-2011 seat will not fit well on a 2012 bike.

I'm super interested. It all comes down what this seat does to the height. Do you have any details? Does it feel any lower? If they can make a comfortable seat that is a good 1 inch lower then the stock I think they're going to have lines coming out the door.

This seat feels a little bit lower but at the same time less cramped in the knees. I will have some riding impressions after my jaunt to cracker barrel in the AM. The Sargent is most certainly flatter and wider than the stock and the DP seats. Both Ducati seats feel "squishy" compared to the Sargent. I have attached some more images comparing the three seats.

Good question. I'm curious as well.

It should work on all models. Check out the pics...

Lines of short people maybe

I'd rather it maintained stock height.
