I purchased one of these for my Rivale. I always thought the original seat looked cheap and as it's just covered in plastic I found that I was sliding about on it when braking and accelerating. The new seat has a better finish which prevents this sliding when wearing leathers. In terms of comfort I don't think you'll notice any difference. It's basically the same seat base and padding just with a different covering material.

ah i see.. yeah it kinda looks like cheap .. but not really a problem.

Been wanting something a little more comfortable but its not terrible..

These look good but a bit expensive for just the cover

It's a seat man, you put a saddle on a horse.

I've had that seat for a year or so now. It's very slightly more comfortable than the stock seat, but comfort improvement is not enough to justify it. I bought it because it looks a lot better than the stock one.

It looks great. Its oem and a little more comfortable. . While i dont feel that the 2015 seat is terribly uncomfortable. .. (not fz09 uncomfortable by any means lol) i think i will get the option seat.
