BMW K1600GT & K1600GTL Sargent Motorcycle Seats
Sargent Cycle Products is proud to introduce incredibly comfortable, feature-rich World Sport Performance seats in two height variations for BMW’s mighty K1600 GT and GTL.
All come equipped with heating systems and are available with the company’s new, 5-way-adjustable backrests for riders and passengers.
Sargent’s latest release fits all K1600 model years and gives owners of the luxurious GTL more flexibility in seating configurations, as Sargent’s two-piece set replaces the bike’s single-unit design. The new front seat is available in regular height and a low version with slightly easier reach to the ground for more secure footing. Just like stock, it mounts in both of the bike’s height settings.
The rider and passenger seats are built on Sargent’s own lightweight, precision-molded PolyTec seat pans. The front and rear units feature unique support wings to increase the seating area’s width by more than 20%. The front seat also has a convenient under-seat storage compartment sealed by a hinged door. This ergonomically correct platform and its dished contour minimize pressure points that cause fatigue and pain.
They’re outfitted with meticulously engineered hardware and conveniently use the K1600’s original key once the OEM lock set is transferred to the Sargent seat. Detailed instructions for this simple swap are included.
Sargent’s Super Cell Atomic Foam Suspension is completely re-contoured compared to the stock seats’ shapes, with more width and foam support where needed, allowing better weight distribution to help eliminate hot spots. Their more level seating surfaces reduce the tendency for riders and passengers to be pushed forward. Bonded to each base, the foam is formulated for a perfect blend of durability, firmness and vibration absorption, all wrapped by a moisture barrier.
The cushion is covered in Sargent’s premium-quality, waterproof vinyl and has durable, comfortable, maintenance-free CarbonFX seating inserts that come standard in black. The seats are accented with black or contrasting metallic silver piping around their circumference, but can be ordered with a choice of piping colors to complement various K1600 paint schemes.
Also new for 2014 is Sargent’s five-way-adjustable backrests for riders and passengers that give increased long-haul comfort. With a simple twist of grippy external knobs, they pivot up, down, forward and backward. Both are finished with black CarbonFX inserts.
Standard equipment on every World Sport Performance K1600 seat is an efficient, easy-to-use seat-heating system for riders and passengers that is operated the BMW’s on-board heat controls.
It features a new Carbon Fiber Flex Pad molded into each seat cushion just below the foam surface that is undetectable while riding and has heating elements that spread heat evenly. The super-thin pad is designed to flex with riders’ weight and seat pressure, ensuring that comfort and suspension are not compromised.
For seamless seat mounting, the system has plug-and-play connectors which mate with BMW’s on-board plugs–no wire splicing is needed to mount this turnkey setup.
All Sargent seating products are backed with three levels of post-purchase protection. They’re covered by a 1-year limited warranty to be free from defects in workmanship and materials.
Seats ordered directly from Sargent come with a no-risk, 30-day money-back guarantee and an extended warranty at no extra cost. It protects foam and hardware for five years, covers for two years and heating components for one. The company’s comprehensive aftercare program offers repair, reupholstering and refurbishing services.
