Is there any added comfort value to that seat? Or is it simply for looks?
How does it attach on the bottom of the seat? Can you show us pics of the bottom?

If just a simple seat cover, I'd be worried about it moving around during 'spirited' riding...

No, not just a cover...replaced the oem cover...

Added 1" of foam...oem comes with almost no foam...staples...
Gel was extra $30, so didn't get it...also gel gets HOT...don't want the
boys to get roasted on a track day...

looks and comfort...

I had them add more foam to the front, so the boys don't get banged up too much...

Cool, looking forward to see it on and how it feels while riding. Great sub in place of almost $400.00 for a Sargent. If it's all good I will be checking it out. The stock seat is a POS!

Not sure I understand...
Do they give you a whole new seat for $88? Or did they modify your existing seat and add to your specifications?

Doesn't look bad at all! Nice find!

I never used the OEM seat, been using the ducati performance seat...went to the LB motorcycle show, these people from HTMoto had great deals on these seats...They used my OEM Duc seat that comes with 848, they took off all the std foam and black cover. installed 1" foam and the new cover to my specs...they have many many options to choose from...was thinking about alligator skin for few mins at first...Just not the alligator skin type of person...Ostrich looked cool, not too flashy...
