Sargent World Sport Performance Seat BMW S1000R / S1000RR
Good alternative to factory seat
Not as soft and plush as factory but still pretty comfortable. A little wider between the thighs than factory. More area to sit and doesn't push you into the tank.

Far more comfortable than the stock seat
This is my second Sargent seat. The first one was fitted on a BMW K1200S and was in use for over four years prior to selling the bike. At the time, the seat was just as comfortable as the day I bought it and looked like it had just been installed. After spending a few hours on the factory saddle, I decided to once again swap out that seat for the Sargent seat. There is no need for a break-in period. You'll be able to notice the difference with the very first extended ride. Compared to a couple of other alternatives, the retail price is a good bang for the buck. If you're looking for greater comfort on longer rides, you can't go wrong with a Sargent seat.

I own a 2014 s1000r and rode the stock seat all last year.
I bought the Sargent seat this spring and find it much more
comfortable than stock, and it does not transfer as much heat as stock. Great commuter seat. Have not tried it at the track.

Rode 450 the first day and realized I made a great purchase
I was extremely reluctant to buy an aftermarket seat, not knowing if it would be more comfortable for my rearend. Wow, what an improvement!!! I just completed 750 miles in 2 days. Very pleased

This is my second Sargent seat. I have one on another bike. I've tried Corbin and others, and I'm done experimenting. Sargent makes the most comfortable, durable seats. And their customer service is head and shoulders above the rest. Easy decision on what seat to buy from now on.

A must upgrade for your S1000R
Important note - I put this seat on a S1000R not an S1000RR. the Sargent part number is the same for both bikes and the fit is exact.
After having put 700 miles on my S1000R I noticed that the stock seat was pretty uncomfortable on longer rides. It has a distinct slope forwards which continually pushed me against the tank. BMW has a comfort seat available, which retails for well over $300. in my opinion this is a better option. The seating position is flatter and so you don't get pushed forward, this makes for a more comfortable ride. The finish is great, and the tag in BMW racing colours is a nice touch.
Sargent seats are known for quality and comfort and this seat doesn't disappoint.

Very comfy seat!
This seat is much wider than the stock seat, but not as soft. The stock seat always pushed me into the tank, and this caused plenty of discomfort on bumpy roads. The Sargent seat allows you to sit further back without pushing you forwards towards the tank. Buying the Sargent seat has made a huge difference in my daily commute.
