Yamaha has unleashed a seriously fun “naked” Sportbike that features a free-revving 850cc triple-cylinder engine slid into a slim and nimble chassis. Yes, we’re talking about the FZ09. When you have this much fun available to a rider you better be sure to have accessories that are well suited to the task. Once again, Saddlemen has found a way to make a great bike even better with four seats specifically engineered for the FZ09.
These FZ09 seats are the latest advancement in Saddlemen’s line of Sportbike Seats that are designed specifically for the rider that needs a seat that can do everything—canyon carving, track days, or commuting. Most of these stylish seats feature Saddlemen’s patented Gel Channel (GC) technology that incorporates a split piece of SaddleGel and a channel in the base foam to relieve seating pressure on the perineal area, increase blood flow, and keep the rider in the saddle longer.
The foam and GEL for each seat has been shaped and ride-tested, then reshaped and ride-tested again to resolve comfort and control issues that haunt the motorcycle’s original seats. Gone is the forward pitch that causes the rider to slide into the fuel tank. Also gone is wafer-thin foam as Saddlemen’s progressive density foam creates a foundation that’s supportive and plush.
