I'm wondering how they feel when compared to a DVT's stock seat which is the best factory seat I've had on a Duc so far.
Have seen them and read about them, sounds like a good idea. I may be alone here but I've had a difficult time trying to understand why pay for a aftermarket seat that is NOT custom made for you, the intended rider. In some cases they are only a bit more expensive. But I digress, not trying to hijack your question. :|I'm wondering how they feel when compared to a DVT's stock seat which is the best factory seat I've had on a Duc so far.
You can get it as a DP accessory, but not from Touratech themselves: Touratech rider comfort seat - Ducati Multistrada Accessories
Would like to hear your opinion on this. I do a lot of a long distance riding and Iron Butts so anything that adds more comfort back there I find a good upgrade.Going to test one out tomorrow, So if it's good I will be purchasing it as the standard seat is not that good.
Gotcha... thanks for the clarification. Good to know it's not always labeled as Touratech.You can get it as a DP accessory, but not from Touratech themselves: Touratech rider comfort seat - Ducati Multistrada Accessories
Is the shape the same as the stock seat? Same upwards slope back near the pillon? Same width?I have one for my 2015 DVT. Had it for about three weeks now and did a 600 mile ride last weekend with it.
Yes there are expensive. Corbin seats came out with their DVT seat a few months ago for about the same price. Went back and forth on which one to get finally decided on the Touratech cause it keeps the aesthetics the same.
My complaint about the stock seat is that I kept sliding towards the gas tank and I felt I was sitting on the hard seat pan when I sat back in the seat. The Touratech has a thicker firmer foam and a better cover that keeps me from sliding towards the tank. I'm sure it adds a slight height to the seat but to me that was a non issue.
If the stock seat works good for you then hang on to your cash but if you're looking for better support and don't like sliding in the seat then this might be a good upgrade.
I hope this helps.
