Yep, letters are white on the comfort seat, just like the Icon seatAre the Ducati letters at the back of the comfort seat in WHITE? If so, I'll be getting one to replace the UE seat I got for my FT.
Ah! Didn't realize there were two pictures in the first post that were nested in below.
I also see you have a white bike (which is something I'm probably going to do myself), can you take a picture of the whole thing, seat and all? Would love to see what these babies look like in white!
I have to say that I'm not a fan of the comfort seat. I just got mine and rode 10 miles and it really changed the way the bike feels for the negative. I also don't find it to be any softer than the stock Icon seat. Bumps were just as tooth rattling and jarring. The biggest problem is that it changes the way the bike corners because I'm up higher off of the ground. I thought that I'd like that feeling, but it's very much 'up on a horse' now as opposed to 'down in a race rocket.' It also messed with my handlebar ergonomics and mirror line which is a testament to just how much taller it is. They claim it's an inch taller than the Urban Enduro which has to be an inch thicker than the Icon seat.
I'll wait to form my final opinion until I know if the seat foam is going to soften up at all. I'm happy with the build quality of the seat and it looks absolutely normal on the bike rather than dorky like a fat guy saddle seat someone had custom made.
And yes, the DUCATI is white, as opposed to gray. I like white better anyway.
I have to wonder if any of you that have the Urban Enduro or the Classic wouldn't like the loser Icon seat since it gets you lower into the bike and makes cornering so much fun and reassured feeling.
Thanks Nick! I know White/Black may not be the first choice for most, but it works for me. It definitely gets the questions. Last week on the way to work I had a guy pulling out of Dime City Cycles almost ran me over in his SUV to catch up to me at a traffic light. I have actually started muting the music in my helmet at stoplights because almost every day someone tries to get my attention to ask about the bike.scowa18, I cannot get enough of that white/black thing you got going on there brother! Great work!
Pumped that you are digging the new seat.
