Has anyone tried it. It looks great but i would like some more comfort than the existing one.
Any input is greatly appreciated

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.

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.

Due to the tank, the 2015 seat is different to the 2014, so it may be more comfortable. Just make sure you get the seat for the 2015 with the larger tank if you have a 2015 model Rivale.

Ok, got the seat "cover" and had it installed by Austin Interiors so that I couldn't screw it up. They shaped new foam and got rid of the hump for the passenger. This isn't a great pic, but it works well enough.
