Dark Knight Street seat

Got my seat today. It took two weeks to get from Thailand. The seat was packaged very well.

All wrapped up in bubble wrap

Quality is good and the foam feels a little softer than the stock which is a huge plus for me atleast.


And here's the seat on the bike. Don't mind the scooter.

Over all I like the seat but I it really needs rear sets now. I have only one issue with the seat and that's the bump for the passenger. I really don't like how high it is especially when I ride this thing all the time. It puts me way far forward on the bike which is good for handling but not much for comfort. I'm thinking with rear sets and lower bars it will get significantly better. I'll put more miles on this seat and hopefully have more to say. For $102 usd shipped to my door though it's a nice upgrade.

For a second, I thought the seat was somehow related to batman. :P The dark color certainly fits the part.

Who do you plan to have sitting in the back?

I haven't been on a long ride yet. I just went out for like a mile or so ride. It was very nice. The only thing I didn't like was that because of how low the seat sits and the hump up to the passenger you really have no room to adjust yourself back. This seat is not for people over 5'11. It's going to take some getting used to and probably rear sets but it's not bad.

Think you'll be switching seats offten. Or just keeping that one on for all occasions?

I got a seat with a bump too, while it looks really cool I cannot use it because I am to tall and it forces you into a spot that is not comfortable where it feels like I am overly hugging the tank... I love the look of them but they do not work well if you are taller! I am 6'2

Glad I wasn't the only one.

But, seat does look really nice. Glad to hear it's comfy too and for that price, it's not bad at all

It's also a full replacement seat not just a cover so if one were to not like it it could be swapped back to stock with just the turn of a key.
