Touratech Comfort Seats Video

This video shows the design and craftsmanship that goes into every Touratech comfort seat.

The road is just right and the weather is perfect, but there's a problem… your backside is staring to hurt and you’re thinking about cutting the ride short due to the discomfort. Don’t waste a perfect ride with a bad seat. We all know how important comfort is on an Adventure Touring motorcycle.  Your seat is the largest connection between you and your bike, and can make or break a trip. Upgrade your comfort level and make those long days in the saddle more enjoyable with a Comfort Touring Seat from Touratech. 

Touratech seats are purpose built for Adventure Touring and packed with features that are designed and tested by travelers and adventure riders in real-life conditions. 

  • 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.
  • Durable, comfortable stretch cover – Touratech seats feature a two-way elastic, non-slip standard cover, which flexes enough for you to shift your body to stay comfortable.
  • 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.
  • Three 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.  Touratech seats come in three different heights depending if you want your seat higher, lower, or the same as stock.
  • Ergonomically shaped, matching passenger seat available - Passengers need comfort in the long-haul too! The Touratech passenger seat is specially formed to keep the passenger securely in place whether you're hard on the brakes or rolling on the throttle.  Passenger seats are made with all the same high-quality components as the driver seats.

­With the amount of time you’ll be spending in the saddle of your Triumph Tiger Explorer, a comfortable seat is a great investment that will pay for itself every time you hop on your bike and hit the road.

the ONLY thing I don't love about my Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200 is the seat and the short distance between my butt and my feet. Really love the bike, but was actually considering getting another bike simply because I was miserable in the saddle (and Triumph brags about their seat - sorry! it just didn't work for me.) I was visiting Seattle Touratech and Morgan asked about my bike - and I told him my dilemma - he introduced me to the high, breathable, comfort seat. $600 I was not ready to bite. But I had a 300 mile day ahead of me and was not looking forward to it. I should be looking forward to it, and I shouldn't buy another bike looking for a better seat! Morgan tipped me over the edge by assuring me I could try it out and return it if I didn't like it. My girlfriend and I did the ride the next day and I was in great shape (I'm old and broken and everything hurts all the time anyway so I was very happy to be moving around pretty well during and after the ride!) My friend though was miserable. Got her the passenger seat - arrived today - can't wait for her to try it out! Will keep you posted.

Oh, I forgot to mention. Be clear that you have to remove some hardware from your stock seat and install it on your new seat. Not a big deal, but if you're planning on selling the old seat to recoup some of the $$ then factor that into the deal.
