Passenger Comfort AND Clean Lines

30 Nov

Back support is not just for the driver anymore!  Passengers can have the comfort they deserve with Mustang’s new fully adjustable backrest!   The built-in, removable passenger backrest offers all the features of the popular driver backrest for FL Touring models 1997-2012.

The 13.5” wide passenger seat with built-in backrest is available with plain, chrome studs or black pearl-centered studs, with prices starting at $449.  The front of the passenger seat is recessed to allow clearance when installed behind a solo with a built-in driver backrest.  For passengers who prefer more room or want to lean farther back, Mustang offers an optional offset backrest post for only $25.

Riders who have a Mustang solo with a driver backrest and want interchangeable comfort can purchase the passenger seat with a receiver only (without backrest) priced from $249; this passenger seat accepts the driver backrest from the solo for dual versatility.

Mustang can also accommodate riders that have our solo seats without driver backrests, but would like to have a backrest for their passengers.  These passenger seats are not recessed; instead they You Tube Video QR Codeextend forward over the driver’s solo to give additional back support.

Watch a short demonstration of the full versatility of the passenger backrest.

This month, Gary Kendrick, Mustang’s vice president of manufacturing, joined more than 60,000 of his closest friends at SEMA, touting our world-famous motorcycle seats and talking them up to anyone who would listen. He said he spent three full days making (more…)
