Heated Seats...

Ordered my new KTM Adventure back in March, going through the list of options, "heated rider and pillion seats"... I tried these on the Triumph I test rode last year.... not sure if I get the point.... Heated grips... yes, brilliant.... but its my 'extremities' that get the cold, Hands, feet, etc... not my ass..... (Enough now, stop the 'hot-gas' jokes...)


Obviously as they were available, I ordered them (cant be delivered untill mid may). 

So..... Heated Seats.... a good 'touring' option... or pointles.... discuss.....

P.S. Bike collected nearly three weeks ago... what an INCREDIBLE motorcycle....... just amazing.....

If you don't get a cold 'arris, then there's no point. Heated grips are a god send though. EVERY bike I ever have, will have heated grips.

Heated Seats

Rode to work once when the seat had frozen solid, not comfortable at all! This was on a bike with an underseat exhaust too.

I can see how they wouldnt have much of a market for one in the UK, most bikes here are used for lesuire only but in the rest of the world? Plenty of other countries still see the motorcycle as a practical form of transport.

got one

Stunty,

I have heated seats on my Wing, also had them on my RT. Wouldn't be without them having experienced both with and without, AND they are always a good option when it comes to selling the bike.
PS. also keeps the nuts warm:tongue:

Heated seats

I have heated seats on my 1200RT.  I would not have selected them as an individual extra but they came as standard on the SE version of the bike along with a load of other goodies.  I have only used mine once or twice when I was out on cold days it was OK - quite pleasant in fact.  Heated seats are a little like heated grips - for me the big bonus is that I can wear summer gloves most of the year.  I guess the same would apply to heated seats - you can get away with wearing Kevlar jeans on days we you might otherwise need something more substantial. However, heated seats are still not something I would specify as an extra on their own whereas I would always choose to have heated grips.

Could be nice

for that summer evening that goes chilly. Can't see it being of much use thru full winter kit though (perhaps I am worng though); nor of being enough to wear jeans on a mid-winter ride.
