My bike doesn't do back-seat passengers. It's for quiet time between me and the canyons. Okay, sometimes Kenny Loggins is with me on Bluetooth, but private time none the less. Therefore I have no use for a padded rear seat that only takes away from the clean lines and design of a custom riders seat.

So, without further ado, I'm looking for a solid rear seat replacement or "solo seat." I've found one option at CarbonWorld.de for about $180 plus shipping and another from eMoto >:) for roughly $375 plus shipping and one last one from Evolution Bike for just over $100 plus shipping.

Before I pull the trigger on any of these, wanted to check in with the group to see if anyone has one lying around, experiences with one of these vendors/products, etc. Thanks in advance!

eMoto = DO NOT USE : do a search and you will find why.
Thanks rsawkins! Been on the forums long enough to know the history there. Sadly, they’ve always got what you want in stock! This time though, at more than 3x the price ?

They are for the separate rear seat on the older models.

Ok that's what I thought. I am not a huge fan of this one giant seat

I personally have been eyeing the carbonworld version as I like the raised looked. My biggest dislike with the stock look is that the back just looks to flat.

I swear I saw a picture online of a raised version with a small tail bone pad - looked very sporty. Anyone know of such a version?

We “older models” prefer the team “vintage” :wink2:

The old F4 had a raise with a pad on it. There were some forum OGs who modded to fit the Brutale, but I think all those fellas are long gone at this point.

EMoto is defunct. They have nothing. You find that out at checkout.

EMOTO IS SYNONYMOUS WITH FUCKING THEIVERY.

Got the seat cover from Carbonworld.de yesterday. Packaging was top notch, including a scratch-resistant dust cover over the gleaning new piece of carbon. Had to rinse off Bella after she sat through a weekend of board cutting in the garage, so I took the opportunity to throw on the new addition. This first picture doesn’t do it justice — the bump up design really brings the back end to life. Now I just need to decide whether it’s going to get painted or if it gets to stay raw. I don’t have any other exposed CF on the bike, and I’d hate to start down the expensive path of adding more!

Oh, and now I REALLY need to remove the passenger pegs.......

Aaaaaaaaaaaaand it's gone. The Brutale seat thief strikes again. :banghead: I've always been good about checking the latching mechanism back there, but I must have missed it in my last preflight. Got done with my afternoon ride and found an uncovered trunk. Reran about half the ride before I found it in two pieces (the seat and my fancy new carbon cover), both run over to shit. :violin:

Now what the hell am I going to do?????

Looks great . I am guessing that will not fit on my 2015 1090rr , right ?

Not sure on the fit between a 1078 and a 1090.

I got my 1090RR single seat cover from Evolutionbike and just told them what colour scheme my bike is. Fast delivery from Italy :)

your bike does give me a excellent idea of what mine would look like ,seeing how mine is the same color scheme as yours .:yo: I am just not sure If I like the extra styling ridge on theirs . I would kind of like one with the same profile as the stock white rear seat . Could you post a from the back end pic of it in your garage or over the top from the front ?
