Saddleman Motorcycle Seat

The 1993 MotoGP World Champion and chief instructor at The Schwantz School, Kevin Schwantz, has partnered with Saddleman to create a signature seat for sportbikes.

From his experience, Schwantz’s Saddleman seat was designed to provide ultimate comfort and seat positioning for sportbike riders. And each seat is embroidered with Schwantz’s signature and his famed #34, a number which the FIM etired in 1995.

Ron Benfield (Saddleman Director of Sales & Marketing) says: “We are very thrilled to be working with Kevin, not only is he a great ambassador for the sport, he knows exactly what’s important when it comes to seating position on a motorcycle.

“Saddlemen will also partner with Kevin at his Schwantz Motorcycle Riding Schools, by fitting the school bikes with his signature seat.”

When Kevin retired from professional competition in 1995, the FIM felt the loss to the sport was so significant that they retired his signature competition number 34. It was the first time in the history of the sport that a rider had been so honored, and his number 34 continues to be one of the most recognized symbols in racing.

Kevin Schwantz says: “I am excited to work with Saddlemen on the development of this seat and more. My students and racers to come will benefit from the relationship as we continue to develop hi tech sport bike seats.”

The signature Schwantz seat is available for a MSRP of $299 at Parts Unlimited dealers.

Saddlemen has been crafting seats for racing for nearly 20 years, starting in Flat Track and now for sport bikes and Road Racing. Its patented channel design has set the standard for performance and design.

The Schwantz School was started in 2001 with the goal of making better, safer and more confident riders. The Schwantz School holds the honor of being the only track-based school to be recognized by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF).
