Looking for a new throne for your 2018 Harley-Davidson Softail? Check out H-D’s two newest offerings below.


Harley-Davidson continues its leadership as one of the most customized motorcycle brands in the world with the launch of its all-new designed seats for 2018 Softail® motorcycles. Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Parts & Accessories are developed alongside its new motorcycles to provide riders with the highest quality and the most extensive range of customization options. The new Bandlander® and Brawler® seats get enhanced style and comfort for the new 2018 Softail models.

Take the guess work out of finding a perfect-fitting seat by checking out a participating Harely-Davidson dealership for the chance to try several seats via the Seat Demo Program. A rider can try several seats and see how each affects the style, comfort and ergonomics of his or her motorcycle.

When it’s time to go it alone, go in style. The premium quality Brawler Solo Seat (P/N 52000299 and 52000301, $249.95*) (lead photo) features a new smooth, sleek shape that hugs the frame rails for a race-inspired custom look. The Brawler seat’s design places the rider in the bike for a low-slung riding position and features a kick-up in the rear to hold the rider in place. The redesigned Brawler seat features a unique hidden post and grommet seat mount for a clean custom look. The fastback tail is accented with a custom medallion set into the surface. The custom stitched vinyl seating surface features a subtle inlay of contrasting material, and the contoured foam padding provides a firm but luxurious feel. The seat does not accommodate for passenger pillion riders. The new Brawler seat fits ’18-later Slim, Deluxe, Heritage Classic, Street Bob, Breakout and Fat Boy models.

Clean smooth covers, subtle top-stitching and a frame-hugging profile add up to a statement only Harley could create on the new Badlander Two-Up Seat (P/N 52000297, 52000298, 52000300, $299.95*). The low design delivers a reduced seat height that is ideal for riders that want the shortest possible reach to the ground. Additionally, the long and lean shape allows tall riders to move back from the hand and foot controls without sitting higher on the bike. This seat is wrapped in water-resistant vinyl and finished with an embroidered Harley-Davidson script. Kit includes grab strap and all mounting hardware. The new Badlander seat fits ’18-later Slim, Deluxe, Heritage Classic, Street Bob, Breakout, Low Rider, Sport Glide and Fat Boy models.

Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories are available at more than 750 authorized retail locations in the United States and online.
