1190 Adventure Aftermarket Seats

Hey guys! Long time listener, first time caller. I have been having a difficult time finding aftermarket seats for this bike. I've always had Corbins on past bike, but they don't make one for this yet. What aftermarket seats do you guys have or know of?

What I've found so far:
- Saddlemen Adventure Tour (no reviews) A couple websites sell them, but I called Saddlemen and they tell me that they don't make one.
- Touratech (no reviews)
- KTM Powerparts Ergo Heated

Any recommendations?

Thanks, guys!

I have the heated ergo seats. Good two hour comfort and they seem to be a bit lower than stock which helps a 30 inch inseam. My wife appreciates the heated pillion seat and says it is very comfortable on and off road. It has been a good value for me.

Seat Concepts. They don't show the 1190 Adventure on their site but when I emailed them about the 1190 they said they are now making it for the bike. I have never had one of their seats but have heard good things and the price seems reasonable. I am also looking for a replacement.

Mine has the most comfortable stock seat KTM has ever put on a motorcycle.
Having said that...
There is always room for improvement.
KTM has, almost, single handedly created the after market seat business. :-)

When I bought the bike I ordered it with the heated seats and grips, then did a 1900km round trip with the wife, true they sit very comfy between fuel stops and the heated option is a treat when the wife gets cold so she's very happy...I'd say go KTM Powerparts Heated seats.

ONLY complaint I have is KTM's choice in controls, they give you onboard adjustment for the grips which is great but the seats get these naff buttons that you can't see for shyte during the day if it's on,low,high...and they position the buttons in really crappy places.

Maybe you fitted the Ergo seats in place of the rally seat on the 1190 Adv R which is 2.5 cm lower than the standard seats on the 1190 Adv S?

For your needs, how about the Touratech one-piece seat instead of the "R" rally seat? It's 1cm lower than the KTM rally seat and according to Touratech it is much more comfortable. The list price including tax is 397.95 Euros. They will ship anywhere in Europe (carriage extra). Also you may be able to find a buyer (e.g. on Ebay) for the KTM standard seats and touring seat, and offset some of the cost of the Touratech seat.

Yes I know it but for me 400 to low the seat only by 1cm is too much! I think you cannot even notice the lower seat....it should be at least 2 cm...or I'd like to have the opportunity to try it before to buy...
