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.

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…)
