Hope to be picking up the first Sargent seat next week, My XR was used this summer for their prototype and development..


That's awesome! Would greatly appreciate if you shared your initial thoughts once you receive it as well as any measurements/comparisons to the stock seat.

Went over to Sargent last week to watch them set the foam in the mold and recover my seat.  The factory is amazing, I never had any idea how complex the manufacturing process is.  ANYWAY, the seat is just fabulous. Very comfortable. After a while on the bike you forget you are even on a motorcycle. It has a multi density foam with a memory pad in the form. It is called their Revolution seat. They use your seat pan and their foam and what ever type, style and color cover you want. Same comfort is built into the pillion seat.  Turn around is 48 hours, I think...   Later if demand warrants they will build a complete "world" seat with their seat pan. This is my third Sargent seat, I really like them..

That looks rather comfortable to say the least. Do you know once they have the "world" seat in manufacture if they will be selling to the British market or do they have a distribution in the UK.
Out of interest, what was the total cost to remodel the seat??

Not sure of the pricing, but you can go to their website to check that stuff out...  They do have a world wide distribution and reps in Europe..  email them and ask, they respond real quick!

We, my wife and I were not comfortable with the stock seat on my 2019 Triple Black, so we went to a customer seat builder near us in Rockville, MD, USA.  He built a very comfortable two-up seat for us and we love it!

Has anyone compared the factory seat with the "M Sport" seat? Any difference or is it mostly just cosmetic?

Not sure if I am allowed to link to a store, but here goes.
