I Pre-Ordered one of these for my 650 interceptor (which is in Spain) and i was amazed, what a lovely seat and superb value, In fairness, i have a fair amount of Trip Machine goods and every one is excellent Quality and Superb Value for Money. I will continue to Purchase these excellent Products.
I had heard great things about Trip Machine but I still wasn’t sure what to expect when I ordered the TOURING SEAT FOR ROYAL ENFIELD INTERCEPTOR 650, well I promise you it is well worth the money. The quality and comfort are incredible. The seat was delayed due to the on-going pandemic but the communication from Trip Machine was better than I have ever experienced with any other company. I highly recommend both the seat and Trip Machine and I will be a customer in the future as well.
All experience referenced to the stock seat: First, the aesthetics, perfect for a roadster, the seat is perfectly shape to do its job and not look big at all in height and length. With the hard foam, even though it helps with the overall seat height for a 5ft10, it is not at all uncomfortable especially with inner thigh on chassis issue so far. Second, comfort, was a bit apprehensive on how hard the foam is, but it works wonder for my weight class, and makes you stable to flick around in the city. Third built, very well made and put together. The seat base is premium moulded with rubber inserts. The Black Suede is so good to touch. I have not been able to tour long on it, but because of lack of a well in the design I would not try it for long tours, would stick to my sahara seat for that. Back support matters to me. Overall, I am a very happy and delighted customer to have found a premium seat that is just right for my ride. Leather matters. :)
Great Seat overall. I ordered it as an alternative to the touring seat that RE produces. First off, this is a nice seat! The suede is really nice and feels great. The bumps on the top of the seat and the material help to keep you in place when you give it a quick twist of the throttle. Easy install, just plug and play. I went on a 3 hour ride and I was getting a little sore, so could be more comfortable but I feel like an outlier because I have my bike kitted out for longer rides. Overall great seat would recommend. For photos follow me @retro_kayneh on Instagram.
Just received the new suede seat. it is beautifully made and feels lovely. The added bonus being suede is that once in the seat in the position you like, you stay there as it grips to your trousers giving enhanced security on the twisties and other spirited riding. No more numb bum from my Royal Enfield interceptor stock seat. I could last for about 100 miles and became annoying. I have tried this on a long distance too and no such problem and gives me great confidence to tackle much longer rides if needed. Another well made top quality product from Trip machine to add to my collection of parts for the discerning gentleman . Top marks.
