Rear seat disaster!! Need to buy new!....does anyone has one for sale?

Had the greatest riding day this year today. Of course this happens - after a pit stop i forget to close my rear seat properly. Two kilometers down the road in about 160, i feel a smack on my back - I instantly knows what it is - check the mirror and see something red taking off.
It got really torn, only the leather though, but i guess it is difficult to get that exact red leather for a fix, so therefor:

Does anyone have a red rear seat for a Brutale for sale?

Or well, does anyone know how get that kind of leather?

Good time to buy an e-moto cowl? Unless you need to carry the wife/girlfriend/boyfriend/whatever around that is.

lost mine too, it also has quite a story :
First day with my Brutale :
- after 2 hours i put the bike to the ground (wasnt familiar with the new footpeg)
- after a visit to a friends house , i show the compartiment space underneat the passengerseat , do not know yet you must hear a 'click' when closing
I drive off for a few miles and suddenly come to the constatation that i lost my passengers seat
What do i do, i run the road i traveled three times, also another by foot and with help of a friend we do the 4 miles track i done
No result , i could cry ....

2 days later, i am in my shop @ work
comes a guy in with a shirt with no sleaves and a big MV logo tattoed on his arm .
Me : Ah , another MV lover
He : Yes , and i brought you something
Me : don't tell me its true
He : Yes , my friend, here is your back seat
Me : Woehoew

Now, that guy's boss was driving after me when i lost my part
That boss knows MV from his employee who has 3 of them
He pics it up from the ground and takes it along with hem to his business.
The employee called the Belgium Flanders MV dealers with the question nobody lost his back seat, after the call with my dealer he knew where my shop was and could return it to me .

Afterwards i went to that business with 2 bottles of champane
DUDE was i lucky, i dont see that happen with lets say a KAWASAKI
