Most women riders know a good seat can make or break a motorcycle, but finding the right one can be harder than it seems. If you’re the owner of a Harley-Davidson Sportster or Kawasaki Vaquero, these new seats from Mustang could be just what you need to get riding in comfort and style.
First up, Mustang has taken notice of the many riders finding inspiration in racers of a bygone era, and this new Café Seat is helping to bring back the café racer style. Rather than simply transforming the look of the seat, Mustang has added its signature comfort to the rebirth of this historic style.
The Mustang Café Seat is 11.5 inches wide and features a classic pleated design. Priced at $309, the seat fits 2004 and newer Sportsters with 2.25- or 3.3-gallon tanks.
Next up, the optional backrest on the deeply pocketed, one-piece Wide Touring Seat for Kawasaki Vaqueros provides superb back support for longer rides. The backrest is fully adjustable and removable, while the driver’s seat is a full 16.5 inches wide and sits the rider at the ideal cruising angle. Meanwhile, the 13-inch-wide passenger seat uses Mustang's internal steel support wings.
Riders can add the optional passenger backrest (shown here) to the Wide Touring Seat for an additional $200. The seat is also available with studs and conchos.
The vintage-style Wide Touring Seat is sold as a three-piece set, including a solo seat, a removable driver backrest, and a passenger seat with a backrest receiver. Retail price is $739. Visit this page on the Mustang Seats Web site
