New Design Delivers 30 Percent More Touring Comfort

Long-range riders will enjoy unmatched touring comfort with the new Harley Hammock Touring Seat (P/N 53051-09, $499.95) from Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories. The Harley Hammock seat, which is original equipment on the CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide model, features a sling-like fabric suspension system manufactured from a blend of fibers that offer flexibility and durability. The fabric acts like a hammock, providing two inches of suspension above the seat pan, and is topped with an additional two inches of traditional foam cushioning. The internal suspension prevents "bottoming out" and provides a 30 percent improvement in comfort and endurance by isolating the rider from harsh road conditions. The black vinyl surface is easy to clean and maintain, and is finished with a "Harley-Davidson" embossed script logo. The seat can be equipped with a rider backrest (sold separately) on most models. Seat width is 17.5"; passenger pillion width is 15".

The Harley Hammock Seat fits 2008-later Harley-Davidson Touring models (except Tri-Glide). It does not fit models equipped with Passenger Grab Rail P/N 91583-99.
