Anyone try different seats? I want to sit back about 2"

I love the Hyperstrada. I still feel myself sitting as far back as possible. I will never ride 2 up. Has anyone replaced the seat? Ideally, I would like to be 2" or so closer to the rear of the bike. I am 6' 180... Not a big fellow, just wish I was sitting back a bit.
Thanks in advance.

Have you tried out the stock Hypermotard seat? I hated it, but YMMV. You might try to find a used one and have it modified.

Hyperstradahopeful got a custom seat. It looks good and can probably be molded to your liking.

I use the stock hypermotard seat when I ride solo. Feels better I think. Makes it easier to sit farther back.

I will give that a look. Makes sense a single seat would sit farther back. With all the bikes I have owned, I have never bought a costom seat. I was also curious if someone had bought a Corbin or Seargent seat.

I have a friend who cut the foam out of his strada to sit further back, feels okay but looks a but messy since none of the seams match where the contour of the seat moves, I'd try a motard seat first.

Journey and Race Seat

I have the Journey and it made my legs tired. It was forcing them apart instead of allowing them to relax. I got the race seat and like it so far. Its material has great traction. I am 6'2" 200lbs

Want more arm room or leg room? Removing the risers might lengthen the reach to the bars just enough to accomplish the same thing?

I have the same problem as you, 6'2". I just got the Ducati Racing Seat and it solved my problem. It doesn't have the "Step" in the seat so you can move back as much as you like. The few extra inches of space makes a huge difference.

I paid around $360 for it and it took three weeks to get it in from Italy but, it was well worth the price and wait time. Took it for a 50 mile test ride last night and I am very happy with it. Plus, it looks awesome.

Hope that helps.
