Compared to the original seat, Mustang's all new Touring Fastback is better by design. The front seat sits the driver about 1" lower than stock for maximum control of the bike while stopped. The driver is also positioned further back "into the bike" with a full 8" rise for all-day back support. The passenger seat is contoured to take pressure off one's thighs. Designed to work with or without the stock passenger backrest.
