Monster 1200R Comfort Seat: First Impressions
Slightly higher: 25mm but I knew that prior to buying.
Firmer than expected. Not that I'm disappointed with the firmness but simply surprised.
The stock seat on the 2017 Monster 1200S seemed much softer and plush If I remember last year's demo ride.
However, I was comparing that to the stock 1200R seat which is much more aggressive.
On that note, I wouldn't mind comparing the 1200R comfort seat vs the stock 2017-18 1200S seat.
All and all, the 1200R comfort seat is much more comfortable and shock absorbing than the performance focused 1200R stock seat.
Moreover, I expect the seat to break-in somewhat making it softer and more compliant.
I'll be riding it predominately for the next few months and will let you know if it does.
