    Beware of this as I have an email in to them as follows:

    Re: KTM (2019) 790 Adventure R *LOW Comfort*


    Your ad says this seat is:

    “1" lower than the stock seat height. Same height as the stock 790 Adventure seat in the low setting.”

    790 Adventure S seat height in low setting is: 830mm / 32.6”

    790 Adventure R stock seat height is: 880mm / 34.6”

    So that’s a two inch difference, not one. Who’s wrong? My figures or yours?

    I only have a 30” inseam so this is very important to me. "

    They replied they are looking into this and will get back to me. When they do, I will post their response here.

    from what I have herd is the seat from ktm790 adv s will fit on a 790 R and will give 1" lower. I think thats what seat concepts is saying. Their seat and the ktm790 s seat will fit on a adv r with 1 " lower.

    I just added touratech progressive springs and that gave me over an inch. Im 32 inseam and I went from tippy toe to almost balls of my foot. Im thinking of trying the seat for another 1"

Construction is solid as usual with those guys and the seat is carved out flatter than the stock R model. Doesn’t push your nuts up into the tank. Drops me from my tip toes to the balks of my feet w a 30” inseam. Super comfortable and now I sit a little more “in” the bike.

    5 stars.

    Just received my sc as well. Went w the ‘rally hard adventure 2.0’

    I see there are now a few more options in their list. Like a ‘hard adventure tall’, rally standard....

    I admittedly just put it on, stared at it, sat on it and made vroom vroom sounds.

    I’ll edit to add pics when I get a chance to ride w it.
