New seats for rider and pillion from Touratech
« on: July 11, 2013, 06:57:15 AM »
Hello,

Touratech will offer in a month or so a big range of seats for the Trophy.
Pics and informations are on their homepage. The higher seats will increase about 2-3 cm. there will be a special version for "desert riders".

Have yourself a look,

Tiger-Willi

Nice, but no use if you want heated seats! The standard seat seems fine to me though!

I have the heated seats too and find them exceptionally comfortable. I don' t think I need to spend anymore!
Triumph Trophy! Not for every Tomaz, Dieter or Herman!🇬🇧

I've just been on holiday in the baltic states (5700km in 3 weeks) and my back has sent messages for a break after 1,5 hours every day. At a weight of 110 kilos the foam seems to give up every resistance.

Reduce weight is no option :182:

Cheers,

Got to admit that the Triumph heated seat is exeptionally comfortable I really can't see the need the change. :018:
Cheer up they said, things could be worse. So I cheered up and sure enough things DID get worse!

Information for all these who aren't lucky with the original one:

I got mine last week. They have made a new die casting very similar to the original one. You have to move the front height adjusting bar and the two rubber parts at the back to the new seat. It is possible to get the seat in both positions in the same way like the original one.
The foam is much more stiffer, so it don't feel like a sofa, but after todays one and a half hour ride I hadn't any problems with my backbone. I took the one with 30 m more height so I sit a bit higher than in the top position with the Triumph original one when mounted in the lower position.
The feeling is that I sit a little more on the bike than in the bike.
The colour runs with the original pillion seating with a little difference.

Cheers,

Tiger-Willi
