Zero Gravity Ducati Seat

After over 20 years of manufacturing world-class windscreens, Zero Gravity introduces two models of premier saddles for Ducati’s popular sportbikes.

Motorcyclists are drawn to winding roads around the world. Latigo Canyon in Malibu, Calif., is one such road, where magazine editors do much of their “testing” of the latest models and make their beautiful cover photos. An 11-mile stretch of two-lane highway known as Deals Gap in Blount County, Tenn., hosts visitors from around the globe to ride its 318 turns and try to tame this “Tail of the Dragon”.

Zero Gravity’s newest innovation is inspired by the exhilaration found on these popular roads by riders comfortably testing the limits of their machines and riding abilities. The Latigo (pictured left) & Draguns Tail (pictured right) Series performance sportbike saddles for the Ducati 848, 1098 & 1198 are designed to flow with the sleek lines of these sportbikes to improve comfort without sacrificing performance.

Latigo & Draguns Tail Series saddles provide a stylish custom look, highest marine grade vinyl seat skin, lightweight ABS base, and a specially formulated foam that allows “give” without sacrificing firmness to allow you to “feel” the road without feeling the pain normally associated with factory sportbike seats or even the so called “gel” seats.

Our saddles can be cleaned with mild soap and water, mount easily using the stock rubber, and are hand made in the U.S.A. with the same quality, craftsmanship, and care of our legendary windscreens.

Latigo & Draguns Tail Series saddles come in black or contrast stitching to match bike’s color scheme and are also available for other select sport bikes.

Saddles start at $295.95 and are protected with a limited factory warranty. Call Zero Gravity at 1-805-388-8803 for more information or visit the company’s website at You can also follow Zero Gravity on Facebook & Twitter.
