Kevin Schwantz Signature Seats from Saddlemen
You may not possess the riding skills of Kevin Schwantz, but you can augment your sportbike with a Kevin Schwantz embroidered signature seat from Saddlemen.
The Kevin Schwantz Signature Seat for sportbikes, MSRP $299, features Kevin’s world famous #34 as well as his signature embroidered on the seat.
“We are very thrilled to be working with Kevin, not only is he a great ambassador for the sport, he knows exactly what’s important when it comes to seating position on a motorcycle” says Saddlemen’s Ron Benfield.
Saddlemen will also partner with Kevin at his Schwantz Motorcycle Riding Schools, by fitting the school bikes with his signature seat.
“I am excited to work with Saddlemen on the development of this seat and more,” says Schwantz, “my students and racers to come will benefit from the relationship as we continue to develop hi tech sport bike seats.”
Schwantz retired from 500cc Grand Prix competition in 1995. So popular was Schwantz the FIM was compelled to retire his signature #34. It was the first time in the history of the sport that a rider had been so honored, and his #34 continues to be one of the most recognized symbols in racing.
