I have a GTV 300 and when I bought it, it came with a red split seat. However, my topcase has a black piping back rest.

At some point I told myself I would make them match.

I was wondering whether this seat was any comfortable.

When I got my GTS it did came with that, and it was comfortable (for myself)..

I since moved to the GEL seat solo and find it even more comfortable...

I don't believe the seat you're interested in is a two-up seat.

I got the gel filled solo style seat. It was a lot better than than the stock one. However I live in Arkansas and it's hotter than hades here this time of year. Once that gel pack gets really hot your man parts will never forget it. Get and use a seat cover when you get off.

Yes... I can vouch for this... You can fit two people on it, but it was clearly designed for a solo ride and not the best seat experience if left in the sun... Laughing emoticon

Are the standard seats more comfortable than the split seat? Mt used gts 2020 came with the gts split seat. It's only comfortable for a few hours and I'm planing a longer trip that will be 5-6hrs (?) one way.

I have long legs and like being able to slide my butt back to the passenger seat. It gets the weight off my tailbone and onto the back of my thighs. Being able to change positions helps me to be comfortable on the bike longer.

This again? I don't know how a person would ride two up with a solo seat. If you have a top case, MAYBE. But your rider would constantly be sliding down and be very uncomfortable. I don't use a top case on my bike and you can see in the pic how a rider would be knocked off on first bump, even if they are tiny! If you don't ride two up a lot and have the room store the old seat and it's only two bolts to change out when needed...

YES! Original OEM crash bars that I powder coated before black was available. This is the SIP 70s rack and it has total clearance. I know there are some other racks made by different vendors that had clearance issues but the SIP has zero problems...

I think Cheeky Seats does covers for the GTV seats; if you like the split-seat style but just want to change up the color, that would be the cheaper way to go.

Personally I find the GTV split seat to be extremely comfortable for my height/build; I've logged 12+ hour days on it and my butt was fine.

personally, I like the look. By backside doesn't enjoy it after 2-3hrs though. Wasn't sure if the regular set was substantially different comfort wise. I'm about 6ft tall, so was thinking being able to slide back a bit would help.

The solo seat photo you posted to start this thread looks like a Vespa solo gel seat to me. I have one on my GTS - and got it from ScooterPartsCo for that matter. Yes, it is more comfortable than the stock seat IMO. And no, it is not suitable for two up riding.

Becky (my 2021 HPE) has a SIP solo sport seat.
I love it.
