Hello I have a 74 super and had the single seat with the buddy seat. Its comfortable enough but it sits to far forward for me. I decided to get the larger bench style seat like on the PX bikes. I bought it from scooter works and its nice quality but the to vertical springs in the middle of the seat are so uncomfortable on my butt lol. I sit about halfway back on the seat do to my size. My question is there a comfortable seat that allows me to sit back further? I just don't want to buy another seat and waste more money.

Thanks

Most of the newer seats are foam. If that's more comfortable.

Rally seats are the spring type, but have thick foam. And are the same shape as the super seat base.

Corsa style ones are all foam. They sit low.

The last generation of PX seat was all foam, and I've heard are the most comfortable ones Piaggio made. But might look weird on a Super.

Thanks for all the good info and pictures the corsa style seat looks like it might be a good option, I had not seen those. But they look like I could slide back and not have springs in my rump.

Thanks again

With the Corsa style just make sure you get a seat with the lip or hump far enough back. I have one and find myself sliding back to the hump as a stop. Kind of why people like the newer seat because it has a spot for you butt.
