Hi Guys,
I have a 2018 Vespa Sprint. I'm 65 and about 190 lbs. I'll never ride double. The standard seat has the hump for the 2nd rider a little too far forward for my tastes. Don't really care for the Vespe single sport seat from scooter west. Any suggestions? Corbin seat is still a double ... might be better?

Talk to a couple of upholstery shops in your area. Have the valley filled, and the hump shaved. Then recover it with something durable.

I have the same problem with my LX150 seat. I had Cheeky seats make a cover for me that doubled the padding in the rider section. This helps to eliminate the rear hump quite a bit.

It may not be what you are looking for but it's a workable solution.

Here is my thread on the seat cover with pictures..

Did the cover raise you higher or did yo sing into it?

I guess it does raise me a bit higher but not enough to really be noticeable. Prior to the new seat cover I was using a sheep skin pad in the rider area basically doing the same thing. I like the seat cover better.

The ideal seat would be flat across the whole thing like my Triumph Bonneville was. I was not able to find one for the LX.
