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 studs (chrome or chrome with black pearl centers), and the seat is available with or without a fully adjustable driver backrest. The backrest folds flat so you can easily get on the motorcycle. And you can remove it without tools.

The plain, one-piece LowDown seat with a driver backrest for 2009-up FL Touring models is only $669. A matching Wrap-Around Passenger Backrest with extended arms for only $269 completes the custom-looking passenger comfort. Contact us for specifications on LowDown seats 1997-07 Road King models.
