KTM 690 Comfort Seat - The KTM 690 has proven itself to be a great off-road bike, but its seat has never been a strong selling point. Give your favorite off-road motorcycle a whole new feel and be confident enough to take it on a longer journey with a comfort seat from Touratech.
The KTM's stock seat is made of foam that is too soft, and is not shaped as ergonomically as it should be for longer distance riding, creating 'hot spots' and pressure points. These comfort seats from Touratech eliminate all these problems for long distance off-road riding by using a firm, high-quality foam and tested ergonomic shape for the maximnum long distance comfort.
- Proprietary high-density foam provides superior support – A touring seat should be firm. Seat foam that is too soft or “spongy” will lose support and create hot-spots as the miles stack up. All Touratech seats are made from special high-density foam that will keep you supported and not bottom-out, no matter how many miles you ride in a day.
- Specially contoured design for Adventure Touring motorcycles- Touratech seats are purpose-built for Adventure Touring motorcycles, since we know you’ll be riding a mix of on- and off-road terrain. The seats’ special contours stay narrow in the front, right where they should, while staying wide in the rear for greater comfort. Other manufacturers who primarily build cruiser and street touring seats tend to make them extremely wide, making it harder to reach the ground with your legs while riding off-road.
- Perfect positioning of seams – Our seat designers know that one seam in the wrong spot can be a problem on a long trip. We design seats so that the seam locations are not in contact with you which maximizes comfort.
- Two high-tech covers to choose from – Touratech seats are available with a two-way elastic, non-slip standard cover, or with an optional breathable cover for comfort in warmer climates. The standard stretch cover flexes enough for you to shift your body to stay comfortable, while the breathable cover features a layer of high-tech material that allows air-flow and breathability between you and the seat foam, keeping you much cooler and drier where it counts. Touratech breathable covers are proprietary, and the only breathable cover available on the market. Both covers use waterproof material to always keep the foam dry.
- No trade-in required - All of our comfort seats are sold outright. Unlike other manufacturers or custom seat makers, we do not require a trade-in of your stock seat. This means you can keep your original seat around as a spare, or sell it to recoup some of the costs of your new seat.
- Two different height options - Whether you need more space for your legs to stretch, or want your feet planted firmly on the ground, we have a seat height option for you.
With the amount of time you’ll be spending in the saddle of your KTM 690, a comfortable seat is a great investment that will pay for itself every time you hop on your bike and hit the road.
