LowDown Launches For High Flying 35th Anniversary!

22 Apr

_MG_0365-1What better way for Mustang to celebrate its high-flying 35th Anniversary than coming up with a low down seat? Actually our 35th birthday present to touring bike riders is the LowDown seat. Touring riders have been asking for it.. and we have been listening.

79912_AppMustang’s newest Solo seat for touring bikes. The LowDown™ Solo was specifically engineered for 2009-2015 Harley-Davidson® FL Touring models to give riders a lower seat height without compromising on comfort. The LowDown’s 13″ wide bucket is shaped and angled for optimal touring posture on the go, but the real benefit is when you come to a stop. The LowDown™ really does drop the rider down closer to the ground and it is also cut narrow at the front so you can plant your feet firmly on the ground at a stop.

76082_hdAvailable with or without studs, riders can opt for chrome studs… or really bring on the birthday bling with black pearl-centered chrome studs! The LowDown™ seats also come with slotted mounting nuts and Mustang’s mini bib for a complete custom look. Pair it with a Mustang passenger seat if you want company, or run it solo to go it alone.

79912_1_hdFor even more long-distance comfort, add Mustang’s fully adjustable, easily removable driver backrest. Bottom line for the LowDown: it puts your butt closer to the ground, without being a pain in the posterior… or your wallet! For more specifics, check out the website:

These Seats are Low to the Ground to Keep you in Control

LowDown Seat for FL Touring Models

So here’s the lowdown on our new LowDown seats for all 2009 and up FL Touring models. First off, just looking at these seats tells you that both the driver and passenger are sitting in the lap of luxury. You just as well could be lounging on a couch in the living room (it’s that comfortable).

Secondly, we developed these seats after customers bugged us for years to construct a seating arrangement that put the driver lower to the ground without sacrificing comfort. We’re not going to cite heights here, but face it — if you can’t get your boots flat on the ground while your bike is stopped, you lack control. And the only thing that makes matters worse is the fact that you have a passenger on the back. A dangerous condition has become doubly dangerous.

The new LowDown touring design for the FL Touring models sits the driver 1.5 inches lower than the stock seat to ensure a “both boots on the ground” stance. For even better stability at stops, the seat places the driver slightly forward and the nose of the seat has been narrowed. Our in-house design team retained the deeply pocketed, 16.5-inch-wide front bucket for the driver, while the passenger also rides comfortably on a fully supported 14-inch-wide seat.

You can get the LowDown touring seat either plain or with (more…)
