I got a modification from Hornig for the seat: Change one-piece seat for BMW R1200R & RnineT | BMW Motorcycle Accessory Hornig
Rizoma seat with Motobox kit
I met the Italian sales manager for Rizoma at Intermot last year. He emailed me the details of the seat.
The Rizoma seat is made by Race Seats _ motorbikes seats
I contacted them and they would need a core + the additional costs of:
Driver seat Euro 73,20 (including Italian VAT)
Passenger seat Euro 115,90 (including Italian VAT)
Return shipping to me in NL was included in this price.
Ha! Off-topic just a little: I had to buy a spare helmet while on a road trip and the only place remotely close to me was a HD dealership. I pulled right on up to the door and got the most interesting looks while swinging a leg off the 9T.Probably best to go in disguise like you avatar when entering that kind of dealership for a peak you don't want to be recognised do you as you then ride away on a 9T
The pricing was all in the post you quoted the picture from. The price is for you to send them your core which they modify and send back. Turnaround time was less than two weeks for me, including shipping both ways, but this is very dependant on when in the racing season you approach them. I also have another seat, so I didn't mind however long it took.How do you like the Rizoma/Race Seats setup? Did you have to send them your driver and passenger seat and have them custom make it for you? If so, how long were you without a seat? Also, if you don't mind me asking, how much did it cost?
Anyone on this forum actually own the Roland Sands seat and have an opinion on it? I like the look - but curious about comfort, craftsmanship, etc.
I own the RSD Flatout Enzo. I rode with it for 11.5k. It's fine for around town, but not for long distance riding. It's also lower than the stock seat. I would compare it to riding on a brat style seat. I had the stock seat redone so now the RSD is off the bike.I second this. I really like the look of the Enzo seat, but want to radically increase comfort as well as looks from the stock seat. I like the idea of the narrower seat, but if it destroys skeletons I'd have to pass.
I know of only a few that are actually available beyond the one offered by BMW. Post the links of you know of any others.

I've sat on the Wunderlich blacked out R9T that has that seat and the first thing that myself and co-workers noticed was how wide it is. It is comfortable but felt as though it could rub the inner thighs a little too much down the road.I have been thinking about this one. Can anyone tell me more about it? Their website says out of stock.
