Sargent World Sport Performance Seat Ducati Multistrada 2010-2014
Wider and flatter seat provides much needed comfort for longer rides.
Seats, like gloves and favorite ice cream flavors are subjective things. What's great for one person may be terrible for another. The stock seat on my 2014 Multistrada 1200S Touring was utter garbage for my back side. It produced discomfort within 20min of riding. It's forward angle forced my manhood into the tank. It also had rather sharp angles at the stitching which would dig into my inner thighs.
When I bought the bike I immediately upgraded to the Ducati Multistrada GT seat. It was a great improvement giving a wider platform and smother curves. The GT seat was good for about 1 hour of comfortable riding, but after that I wanted to move around. The GT seat doesn't allow this as it's still to concave, locking you into one position. Great for sport riding, poor for truly longer distance.
Enter the Sargent Seat. The Sargent is wider still than the GT seat and is also flatter allowing you to move forward and back. I've found changing positions while on a long ride really helps distribute pressure and restore blood flow leading to longer comfort. This seat takes the pressure off the perineum and distributes it onto the ischial tuberosities(sitz bones). The foam is supportive but not rock hard. It's just right for me. The fit and finish is very nice and I can find no flaws in the stitching/construction. I do wish it was top stitch rather than welt, but that's purely a cosmetic complaint. I am 6'5" with a 35" inseam, so flat footing the bike is not an issue with any seat I've tried. The Sargent doesn't feel any taller or shorter than the other seats I've tried, despite the specs. In fact I've found my knees are more comfortable on the Sargent because I'm able to move back on the seat opening up the angle at my knees. I rode just over 200miles of twisty and rough roads on this seat the other day, and my rear-end was fine when I arrived home. Considering what we pay for modern motorcycles, the cost of this seat was well worth it to be pain free and enjoy the ride.

I have been using this seat for almost two years now. I got it to replace the stock seat which I found to be really uncomfortable (jammed me into the tank). This seat is a little wider and is very comfortable on the long rides. The under seat (pillion) storage is very handy for miscellaneous items. I am 6-1 with a 34 in inseam. The only distraction I have found with this seat is that is is a little slippery. The fit and finish is excellent and installation is very easy. After two years of use, the seat looks new with no signs of wear.

Easier to reach the ground with stock seat than Sargent Low
I'm 5'5" with maybe a 28" inseam, and I have to ride the Multi like a dirt bike -- one foot on the ground, hopping from side to side as needed. Not an issue riding solo as the Multi is so light and well-balanced compared to my Harleys, but two-up riding -- passenger getting on and off, off-camber stops, etc. require a lot more thought and care. I ordered this to see if I could get more foot on the ground than with the stock seat. As it turns out, because the Sargent (Low) is actually wider than the stock seat at the front, the Sargent actually keeps me noticeably further from the ground. Returned. Note to seat manufacturers: the key to getting short legs on the ground is to have the very front of the seat be as narrow as possible, so the rider can slide forward and keep both legs as vertical as possible when reaching for the ground, then move back a bit to a wider surface. Or at least that's my theory.

Paul B: Having already purchased a Sargent seat for my VStrom and my R1150R I decided to try in on my Multistrada, because the stock seat is too high, and the stock low seat is as hard as a rock, and at times I can feel the pan. Besides the Sargent seat looks better too. Now maybe someone should send me one for my KLX250S for free ;) LOLMay 8, 2014
