If that accessory number is the pictured statement seat, yes, thereís a difference. IMO, (and I had one), the Statement seat is Triumphís best looking for the Bobber but, itís pretty hard/firm. I was willing to deal with that since I loved the look but, I didnít really like the lack of support when hitting bumps or on rougher roads. With a better rear shock set-up (mine is OEM) that might be less of an issue. I eventually changed back to the OEM seat but, had it redone with better foam and a leather cover. Much more comfort for me and Iím light weight. There are some guys who are riding the Statement seat and love it, so itís a very personal choice.
All of the Triumph seats are okay in look and price. But if you want comfort get a Corbin custom seat with gel insert. Or contact Aro Upholstery in Canada - she does good work. Look her up on IG @aro_upholstery
Comfort and looks is what I'm going for as well. I need me a Corbin seat, I'm just saving up the money bit by bit (single dad life lmao). Cheers!
Then let me save you a lot of time. Custom seat with gel insert or buy one of the Triumph seats, peel back the vinyl and add your own gel insert and restaple the vinyl. I've thought about doing this with Triumph's brown quilted seat. Still cheaper than Corbin all in.
I have a seat made by Alex leather craft, I saw a similar seat on the forum yesterday despite limited padding I actually think it is far better than standard as I have room to move so it suits me and my riding
The Statement seat takes some getting used to and long trips could potentially be quite unpleasant. But saying that, I found the statement seat to be a substantial improvement over the OEM torture seat.
For shorter trips (once youíve acclimatized to the hard saddle) the statement is great. For longer trips (if it was my only saddle) Iíd probably throw a sheepskin cover over it.
Anyway, here is my comparison from a while ago and Iím sure youíll find a lot more info about the statement seat if you do a forum search.
I like the way the Statement seat looks but it hurt like **** after 100+ miles; sore glutes and inner thighs. Did I mention that it hurt like ****? The stock seat is very comfortable to me and I can sit in it all day without pain. I kept both and switch back and forth between the two depending on how I am going to ride for the day.
