Thats not a stock saddle. It's got some kind animal print stamping done on it. Companies like Cheeky Seats make covers but I don't see any embossed ones. Corbin gives you a selection of different materials, colors, and embossed patterns to build you a seat.

If you like the color and want leather here is one

I agree. Looks custom IMO. With $$$, anything is possible.

I went with a Corbin seat...

It is leather on the seating surface, heavy vinyl (better support) on the sides. A bunch of different colors and stitching available. Much better support than the OEM seat. Some will tell you that Corbin seats are firm - I agree. You need to spend some time on it to "break it in," much like a saddle for a horse. I have had Corbin seats on other bikes and find them very comfortable.

This particular one is "bomber jacket brown" on the seating surface; a double stitched diagonal pattern, and black textured vinyl on the sides. Unbolt the OEM seat, both this one on. The OEM seat had pressure points that I felt after an hour of riding - I can go all day with this seat, and no sore spots.

You can visit with them about what you want for customization - they have different stock stitch patterns (flames, tufted, etc), and fit.

When I search images for Corbin seats for Vespa, that exact scooter comes up with a reference to Corbin Motorcycle Seats. My advice is to talk to Corbin if that is the seat you like.

Wow! Corbin! In Italy it is famous for its Harley Davidson saddles.

Well, Russell Day Long has made some custom seats for Vespas. There are people who swear by their seats, but I don't think I could ever get used to that look on a Vespa!

I have had both good luck and bad luck with Corbin seats.

So far the best I have had on several motorcycles come from Sargent , in Jacksonville, Fl.

That's who I plan to use for my GTS 300. saddle.

Looks like a Corbin to me. Really like mine. I've had their saddles on several bikes. Always gotten on well with them.

I thought the seat was supposed to move us or the weight forward more onto the front wheel, the scooter alone being biased, weight-wise, to the rear.

It is a Corbin, had one on my 2007 it is a great seat. Corbin is a GREAT Company too. They sent me the first one and I felt the nose of the Seat had to much of a forward slope. I was told the seat has a one year guarantee that you will be happy. I sent it back, I did have to pay postage to send the seat but they covered the return to me. It was perfect, deep bucket and cut down for my 29" inseam.
