They have a good reputation but  $650.00 plus shipping from France is a bit steep for my taste..

I got the cover only from them with the heater.  Very good quality, arrived exactly as ordered (there's lots of custom options), took about 3 weeks.  Heater is more than hot enough on the 'low' setting.  I had my stock seat shaved down in the back of the driver's portion to reduce the forward pitch, and then had the cover mounted professionally.  Initially, I tried to mount it myself with a power stapler, but I quit before I got over my head.  there's another review on this site with pictures if you look hard enough.  Overall seems a good company.

I managed to purchase a part used one for my GTR 1400/Concourse and it was fantastic

If I could find a seat base for my Versys I would send it to them for a cover without another thought....money well spent IMHO   :028:

If you choose the "Remanufactured exchange" option it's not so expensive!!

Excellent seat, have one the GTR. Took around 3 weeks from order to delivery here in the UK. What I like about the seat besides the profile, is that it is built to your weight. My GTR pillions also highly complimentary about it.  Although this customises the seat to you personally, I didn't have any trouble selling a previous one on, recovered 60% of the cost. Been thinking about getting one for the Versys but so far haven't had any discomfort up to 200 miles a day so holding off. The seat on my mark 2 feels more comfortable than the one I had on my mark 1, or maybe I'm just becoming more insensitive, so says SWMBO  :192:

I find some of their prices a bit weird tbh. I ordered just the cover for the seat, with shipping about £130 + £30 to have it fitted by my local bike upholsterer. Looks great, etc. No issues with that.  So a bit surprised they want 550 Euros plus shipping for a full seat, I can order a Corbin seat for that money . That i find a bit too much
