When it comes to choosing the right Harley seats, comfort and ergonomics are important factors to consider. Having confidence that you have found the right Harley seat for your ride is essential.

The Harley Davdison “try it before you buy it” concept drives this idea home with the Harley Davidson Seats Demo Program.

Being able to demo new seats on your own motorcycle prior to purchase allows you to experience the proper fit, function and style firsthand, so you know you've made the right choice.


Demo Seat Options

Understand the options available, along with specific features and benefits. This will help you make purchase decisions that are right for you.

Harley Davidson offers a wide range of seat types to
accommodate any rider's needs, whether you are looking
for comfort and/or style in a solo or two-up seat.

Harley-Davidson® seats are quality constructed for maximum durability with high-quality vinyl and leather seat covers as well as form-fitting molded seat pans optimized to provide maximum comfort and durability.

Remember, switching out your seat is simple. And because certain rides call for certain styles, you may want to have a choice of seats available to match the occasion – a comfortable, supportive touring seat for longer treks and a low-profile seat for a night on the town.
