Combining 34 years of seat making expertise with the latest CAD-CAM engineering, Mustang Motorcycle Products LLC has created a new seat exclusively for the BMW R1200 GS adventure touring bike.
The new BMW seat marks Mustang’s first foray into the increasingly popular Adventure Touring segment.
This new seat is much more than a simple cover or a pad added to the stock seat. A proprietary formula for controlled density polyurethane foam is what gives Mustang seats their reputation for retaining their shape and providing support for years of use. The exact shape, angle and density had to be dialed in specifically for the demands of the serious ADV-type rider. It has to be soft enough for comfort, but resilient enough to stand up to those thousand mile days.
Mustang’s covers are made of the high-quality expanded vinyl. They have the appearance of high grade leather, but the durability and weather resistance that far exceeds cowhide and meets all OEM seat specs. Just like the GS itself, Mustang’s seats are over-engineered to handle whatever adventure you may encounter. All seams are sewn twice for extra strength and the bottom edge of the cover is hemmed and then riveted to the baseplate for a secure fit.
Vertically challenged riders will also appreciate the fact that the Mustang seat sits 1.5 inches lower than stock. In addition to the fact that the driver seat can be set at two different heights, it is also just 14 inches wide, facilitating most riders’ ability to plant their feet while in the saddle. Options include a 9 inch wide passenger seat and a fully adjustable, easily removable built-in driver backrest. Applications for 2004-12 BMW R1200GS models.
