ADVMoto Review of Heated R 1200 GS Seats
ADVMoto Project Bike - BMW R 1200 GS - with Sargent Seat
BMW R 1200 GS / GSA 2013.5 WATER-COOLED
Sargent is pleased to present a our new line of World Sport Performance Seats for the 2013.5+ R 1200 GS - World Sport Performance PLUS. This special edition series of motorcycle seats are as comfortable as our standard seats, but feature extra-tough materials, extra-tough construction, and a bold, rugged look.
With our new DTX seating area material and special side grip zones, these seats make an excellent choice for on- or off-road use. DTX offers a strong, yet comfortable seating surface with just the right amount of traction, while the special GRIPZONE side panels offer extra gripping power during braking or off-road maneuvers. And to top it off, we've constructed these seats with beautiful, extra-tough double stitching for a seat built to last with rugged good looks too! And, it's virtually maintenance-free.
Utilizing the latest digital modeling, computer design (CAD) techniques, precise manufacturing processes, and superior materials, each World Sport seat pan is precision-molded for superior fit and outfitted with high-quality hardware. The R 1200 GS seats feature our lightweight yet durable PolyTec base pans with features that go far beyond the stock seat.
Gel-Free! Superior comfort and suspension without the thermal retention and extra weight of gel. Our Super Cell Atomic Foam suspension is our own unique and proprietary blend of resilience, firmness, and vibration-absorption qualities - making it well suited for maximum long distance comfort.
These World Sport Performance PLUS Seats have the following features:
- Gel-Free Super Cell Atomic Foam and enhanced shape with
significantly increased width and lateral lift, providing far better
distribution of pressure over a greater area.
- Zone Suspension Technology featuring hidden central
pressure relief channel plus a special internal layer that absorbs
and diminishes high pressure points.
- Light-weight precision made two-piece
design functions just like stock, allowing for front seat dual height
adjustment and rear seat front to back adjustment.
- Both the front and rear newly designed Sargent seat base
pans have 20% added width (compared to OEM), giving critical
structural foam support for an incredibly comfortable riding experience.
- Regular Height and Low Version front seats available.
- Front seat features under-seat hinged door storage
compartment and build-in LED flashlight holder. Sargent LED flashlight
included. Front seat also features built in OEM Off-Road Performance
Chip holder, just like stock.
- Rear seat features under-seat hinged door storage with
integrated OEM tool holder accommodation.
- Durable and textured DTX seating inserts and special GRIPZONE side panels.
- Extra-tough Double Stitch construction.
- Choice of welt color.
- Optional Sargent EM-5 Front Rider's backrest - the most adjustable backrest on the market.
- Optional Sargent Complete Heat Upgrade available for both front and rear seats - with separate controllers.
- Front seat is compatible with BMW pillion luggage plate (P/N# 77-44-8-523-742) and Sargent EM-5 Rider's Backrest.
- SEAT COMPATIBILITY NOTE FOR THE 2017+ GS ADVENTURE MODEL: The
Sargent Front Seat is only compatible with the OEM stock rear seat with
the Sargent Front Seat in the low position, which also results in a
larger gap. For best compatibility and functionality, we recommend that
both the front and rear Sargent seats be purchased and used together.
Not one, but two choices.
The World Sport Performance PLUS front rider's seat for the R1200GS is available in two seat heights:
The Regular Version, which is comparable to the OEM high seat, and the Low Version, for improved reach to the ground.
||33.5" - 34.3"
||32.3" - 33.1"
||33.5" - 34.3"
||32.3" - 33.1"
The Front Seat is also compatible with the BMW Pillion Luggage Rack and the Sargent EM-5 Front Rider's Backrest. The Passenger Seat is the same for either set-up.
NEW from Sargent - the EM-5 Backrest.
Nothing comes close the versatility and range of motion of the EM-5! This revolutionary backrest system solves the problem of fixed backrests that may or may not be in the "right spot." The EM-5 offers amazing flexibility for perfect positioning and maximum comfort. Light-weight and precision made from Sargent Cycle Products.
We Take Heated Seating To A New Level!
At the core of our heated options is our recently designed Sargent Advanced Heat Controller with "Comfort Control." It offers maximum comfort in cool weather with fully variable heat control. Unlike competitive products that are just on or off, our advanced controller delivers full range heat control with customizable features. This fine control is essential on a motorcycle where ambient temperatures can fluctuate drastically while riding. The perfect temperature is right at your fingertips!
- Solid-state Pulse Modulating Heat Controller.
Unlike competing products that offer just a few settings, our solid-state, ten-step heat controller is fully variable from off to full power and anywhere in between, providing maximum comfort control. This level of control is essential as outdoor fluctuations in ambient temperature can be significant and constantly changing while motorcycling. It is completely waterproof and can be conveniently mounted within view. And, the adjustable power and brightness settings are displayed in a LED bar graph that shows the exact temperature setting day or night, with user settings being held in memory even when the bike is turned off.
- Superior Heat Element Technology.
Our heat pads are molded into the foam just below the surface for optimal comfort and protection. This patented technology utilizes a thin, Conformable Film and Fine Wire Spiral Wound Glass Core Technology for excellent performance. Combine this with our Advanced Heat Controller for a fully integrated heating experience.
- Power Draw.
Each heated seating area (front or rear) is supplied with its own heat
controller. Each heated zone draws approximately 1.7 amps (or 23 watts @
13.5 volts), and dual zone installations will draw approximately 3.4
amps (or 46 watts @ 13.5 volts) at full power.
