LePera Outcast GT

OutcastGTWhat’s this, a cafe racer seat for Harley-Davidson’s big Touring models? Well, not exactly, but LePera’s Outcast GT certainly does look sporty, and thanks to its steep contour rider area, there’s plenty of support for the driver during long hauls. For even more support, LePera includes a removable backrest for the driver. Just slip it in the provided slot, and then hit the road.

The Outcast GT is based on the Outcast, which means this rider area is 15″ wide, for a comfortable fit. A racy inlay center stripe with matching side graphics is available in either red or white. As with all of LePera’s premium-level seats, the Outcast GT has a black powder-coated steel base plate covered with soft carpet to protect the bike’s paint, and it’s ready to mount using the bike’s OE attachment points.

And to boost rider comfort, the Outcast GT has Marathon foam that’s upholstered with premium black vinyl for a lasting fit. The Outcast GT is available for all 2008-up Touring models, XL 04-06/10-15, all Dynas 06-up, FXST 06-UP with 200 MM tire, and carries a retail price of $875 that includes the removable backrest.
