Guide to motorcycle saddle offers
The current motorcycle saddle market can be divided into two main categories:
- universal saddles : for a uniform adaptation on the majority of motorcycles;
- made-to-measure saddles : designed by a saddler according to the customer's wishes.
Custom- made saddles are created from A to Z according to customer orders. The price therefore depends on the specificity of the materials requested and the work to be provided. For its part, the universal saddle market tends towards standard quality products, or even inferior ones, to ultimately offer a motorcycle saddle that is not expensive or at least much more affordable than a custom-made saddle.
However, the risk of disappointment, both in terms of quality, premature wear and the comfort felt in use often goes hand in hand with the purchase price. The choice of a universal saddle must be made with care and requires checking, as much as possible, the nature of the materials used in its composition.
