Race Saddle

Just wanted to say, I ordered the race seat because I liked the profile of it- coming from a motocross background. I also want to say that I thought the original seat was comfy but not fantastic. I am 6'2" with a 34" inseam- so a pretty big dude...

I received the race seat, and geared up to ride. I don't want to be cliche, but that saddle changed everything about that bike. I can now sit comfortable 8" back from the tank, and move around on the saddle however I need to. I'm not a road racer by any means, nor am I very good on a street bike. I do know that this seat made me love this already fantastic bike a lot more. Everything seamed just that more comfortable and natural. I'll likely take the original saddle and get it re cut to this profile in sheepskin (for longer rides with my baby).

More updates to come....

You can see how pronounced the pocket is on the original saddle. The race seat is much more grippy as well

Isn't that just a Hypermotard seat?

I really like the look of the racing seat's profile. Much more room to move, and no big hump right behind you...

no this seat is totally different than the motard seat. It's more of a gripper, it has more shape, stiffer foam and looks better. I ordered it off the ducati website. I think it was around 335 ca
