    I have a Seat Concepts for the 500 and 1190 and love them so I thought the 790 would be no different.
    It's even better, Seat Concepts has brought things to a new level. I purchased the R tall comfort with carbon fiber sides, diamante top with orange stitching. The Rally seat is fairly comfortable but the SC is like riding on a magic carpet.

    The Rally seat weighs 5lbs 9oz.
    The SC seat weighs 7lbs 9oz.
    So the SC is 2lbs more.

    The Rally seat height from ground to about 1" behind the foot pegs is 37-1/16".
    The SC is 37-11/16".
    So the SC is 5/8" higher.

    Stock Rally seat pics.

    Looks good. I’ve got an SC seat on my 500 EXC at really like it. Been on the fence about whether to pony up for one for the 790, but after a sore butt after not that long a ride recently and seeing your post, I pulled the trigger.

    Calamarikid,
    The SC on my 500 is suede and I love it. There's something about the material, just wonderful. And yes, SC on the 1190 as well.

    Cypress,
    Let me think about that. I'll PM you this weekend.
    The Rally seat is the most comfortable KTM seat I have ever sat on. But the SC is a whole new level.

    @BHoward I’ve got the suede as well. It eventually faded quite a bit so I found some suede refinish stain and a kit to apply it - worked like a charm - brought the suede back to life and the dye did not stain my riding clothes at all.

    Very nice, I hoped Seat Concepts would build my 790 seat with suede but not a option yet. The diamante is actually pretty nice, kinda like a synthetic suede.

    Great to hear! I ordered a low comfort one for my R and still waiting for it so I'm hoping it'll be fairly different from stock.
