JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (August 29, 2013) -- Sargent Cycle Products' World Sport Performance PLUS seat for the Suzuki V-Strom 650 is ready for the rigors of adventure touring and hard-core dual-sport riding. It's ruggedly built with heavy-duty, grippy cover materials and distinctly double-stitched construction that is good-looking and nearly indestructible.
Performance PLUS seating surfaces are made from DTX High-Performance Seating Material. Super-tough and long-wearing, it offers optimal friction, delivering the perfect amount of grip--not too sticky and not too slippery--when used with any type of riding apparel.
This enhanced version of Sargent's long-proven designs couldn't carry the World Sport Performance name if it didn't offer greatly improved ergonomics and incredible long-distance comfort.
Its foundation is made from a vacuum-formed CarbonTec material that is strong, lightweight and integrates a built-in storage compartment.
Sargent's proprietary Super Cell Atomic Foam Suspension is bonded to the base. Developed through years of R&D in all conditions, it's formulated for the perfect blend of durability, firmness and vibration absorption, wrapped by a moisture barrier.
Completely re-contoured foam allows better weight distribution and helps eliminate hot spots. More level seating surfaces reduce the tendency for riders to be pushed forward.
To cover the V-Strom's broad range of on- and off-road capabilities, Sargent also released a standard World Sport Performance seat that features the same great ergonomic upgrades as the PLUS model, covered with tough, UV-resistant upholstery that is waterproof and nearly maintenance-free.
This standard version comes with Sargent's proven CarbonFX seating inserts in black. Both models can be ordered with either silver or black piping around their circumference to complement all paint schemes; color-coordinated welts are optional.
Available in regular height and a low version for more secure footing, both offer slightly easier reach to the ground than the stock seats. These World Sport Performance products come outfitted with high-quality hardware and are delivered fully assembled, so they're ready to mount.
Even more comfort and convenience are provided by Sargent's most popular upgrade--an efficient, easy-to-use seat-heating system that is installed during production. Bonded to a seat's foam, the company's Fine Wire heating pad is undetectable while riding. This thin pad has soft, pliable layers sandwiching Nichrome heating elements that spread heat evenly, from a warm 98 degrees to a butt-on-fire 125-plus, to penetrate heavy winter riding gear.
When attached to one of Sargent's state-of-the-art digital controllers, each pad warms up quickly. This unit accurately regulates consistent temperature with micro-adjustability, rather than old-tech high and low settings. Small and waterproof, the controller can be mounted in any orientation, has an easy-to-read, 10-bar LED display that is adjustable for brightness, and raised buttons, making it easier to operate with gloved hands.
All Sargent seating products are backed with three levels of post-purchase protection. They're covered by a 1-year limited warranty to be free from defects in workmanship and materials. Seats ordered directly from Sargent come with a no-risk, 30-day, money-back guarantee and an extended warranty at no extra cost. It protects foam and hardware for five years; covers for two years. The company's comprehensive aftercare program offers repair, reupholstering and refurbishing services.
Sargent World Sport Performance seats are available for more than 80 models of Aprilias, BMWs, Ducatis, Hondas, Kawasakis, Suzukis, Triumphs and Yamahas of all types: Sportbikes, standards, sport-tourers, dual-sport and adventure bikes.
