I Ride: 16 Honda CRF250l, 2016 Hyperstada 939
Racing seat redone by Renazco Racing. Much more comfortable for all day riding. The stock seat didn't let me move around and I was miserable after a couple of hours. As stated the Racing seat is higher and the Renazco probably adds another 3/8-1/2 and inch.

you're really going to have to ride a bit to understand what you have and what you want. Journey seat will bring you lower than stock, while racing seat will bring you higher.

I didn't like the OEM seat because it forced me to be closer to the handlebars than was comfortable for me. Also, my back protector has a tailbone piece, so it extends down further, which interfered with the indentation on the stock seat.


I had to go with the flatter racing seat for my situation, even though it brought me up higher on the bike and I can't really flatfoot with the racing seat.

I’m sure any of these seats will feel like I’m on a Goldwing compared to the torture racks I’m used to. I just like to know what my options are in advance. Besides, it would benefit others to have the options explained all in one place.

If anything, a lower seat would be nice but I still don’t know if mine already has it. I thought all 2015 Hyperstradas came in low but is that just because of the shorter suspension, or was the shortest seat included?

OK, I took a closer look at my seat when I took the bike out of storage yesterday. It's little different than I thought. It says "Hyperstrada" on it instead of "Performance" and the DP logo.

I can't edit my older post, so here is the updated list of the different seats and their descriptions based on what I found from various vendors when I looked them up:

Stock Hypermotard: no stitching
Race: Ducati logo embossed at the front, suede-like seating area - 96880082A


???: three lines across front and back, no stitching


Low: 20mm lower compared to standard seat, three lines across front and back, double row of red stitching - 96880072A


Journey: 20mm lower than standard seat, single row of red stitching, DP logo between rider and pillion areas - 59521572A - replaced by 96880062A


Stock Hyperstrada: single row of red stitching, "Hyperstrada" between rider and pillion areas, similar in appearance to the to Journey seat


I've decided I want a lower seat, but the descriptions for the Low and Journey seats both say they are lower than the stock seat (I assume Hypermotard) by 20mm. And since the Journey looks identical to my stock Hyperstrada seat, can I conclude that I have the lowest available seat already?

The seat with three lines across and no red stitching is the stock 821 Hypermotard SP seat.

The Journey seat sits lower than the stock hyperstrada seat. Personally I found the journey seat to be a bit like a ‘pan’ and not have much room to move around making it a bit more uncomfortable in the long run. It locks you in a bit more than the stock hyperstrada seat. I currently ride with the stock hyperstrada seat and prefer it over the journey seat.

Would you know how the "Low" seat (96880072A) compares? I have an opportunity to get one of those (based on the picture). The seller is telling me the Journey seat is the newer version of the Low seat.
