    SHAD Comfort Seat

    Found a new offering for an alternative to the stock seat..... and both pieces for (currently) the price of a front Corbin seat!!


    here's a link to the company website and specifics:

    Seats - Shad - Freedom to move

    looks very promising so I contacted SHAD USA about availablity and price.... good thing it was a slow day at work

    I ordered the seat and will report shortly on fittment and comfort and pictures of course... so far the customer service and correspondence has been excellent!!

    for those who are interested... here's a link to the order page:

    Seat for Honda NC700 X/S (2012)

    The home page shows two versions... red graphics/ red seams and grey grahpics/grey seams

    Judging by the part number on the order page, the grey/grey is what is presently available... but the red/red might go well with the US 2013.

    They told me they expect a full shipment in about 15 days (see "first come first served" on the order page)

    more to follow............................................ ..........

    Interesting. The NC700X silk screen on the rear seat looks cheesy though.

    Hozabah,
    Great find! Make sure to keep us in the loop when your Shad Seat arrives. Lots of photos also.
    Great price, I just hope it fixes the forward slide problem of the oem seat.

    I have a Shad seat on my MP3. I ordered from supplier in Europe as at the time Shad USA didn't have it. It was a great purchase and I have about 30,000 comfortable miles on it. Could be a great improvement for NC700. Can't wait to hear your review.

    What impressed me and piqued my curiosity was the construction of the seat which is shown elsewhere on the site for a similar seat, the Honda CBF600

    this PDF illustrates the "engineering" put into the design... it's not just higher density foam slapped onto a base

    I seriously doubt the graphics are silk screened.. most probably embroidered....

    I'll wait until I receive the seat to pass judgement on the "flash"

    My eyes and azz had a conversation and agreed that as long as I keep my head out of my azz, it shouldn't be a problem!

    like I tell my bro... the wee strom isn't ugly when you're riding it.

    I don't care if it is embroidered. It still looks cheesy, but I wouldn't let that stop me from buying it. At least you won't be able to see it while you are sitting on it. The rest of the seat looks good though.

    Yes. That logo on the seat made me NOT want to buy it... maybe the folks who make it will figure that out.
