Touring Trio Takes Flight During Daytona
Finally! It is time for Bike Week in Daytona and the official start of the 2015 riding season! In an effort to escape record snowfall in New England, Mustang is sending a full contingent to Florida! Actually we are sending the crew to Daytona to support the launch of our 35th Anniversary campaign, highlighted by a trio of touring seats. Amazing how many volunteers we had to “work” in Daytona, though.
Although we gave our dealers a sneak peek at the newest touring seats at the trade-only V-Twin Expo a couple of weeks ago, Daytona will be the first opportunity the general public will have to see Mustang’s Trike Seat. Actually, the new Deluxe Touring Seat fits FL Touring models from 2008-15 as well as the Tri Glide® Ultra Classic and Street Glide Trikes. Engineered specifically for all-day comfort, the 19” wide front seat sets the rider back 1.75” compared to the stock seat. It also angles the body positioning for improved long-distance comfort.
Of course long distance touring is more fun two-up, so R&D guys focused on the passenger seat to make sure it measures up to Mustang’s high-flying standards. The 14” wide rear seat provides support across its full width and keeps the passenger firmly in the comfort zone. In addition to feeling good, it looks good! We styled this seat along the lines of state-of-the-art automotive interior designs… think Jaguar or Bentley. These seats feature exquisite stitching detail like a luxury automobile, but unlike a car seat, our Deluxe Touring Seat includes front bucket drain for rainy days… not that it is going to rain on our parade in Daytona, knock on wood.
The receiver for the optional, removable driver backrest is built into the baseplate. Please note that this seat will not work with Mustang or Harley® frame-mounted backrest kits. In addition to the trikes and FLs, Mustang also offers replacement seats for virtually all late model Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
How would you like a free seat for a bike or trike? Be sure to check out the #5For35 campaign on Mustang’s Facebook page! Starting with Bike Week in Daytona, we will be awarding seats to contest winners at major Rallies throughout 2015… the only catch is you have to “Like” Mustang Seats!
