Three main gripes, but otherwise it seems to be a good piece of aftermarket seat specific to the Hypermotard (too early to discover any other main issues):
a) Had great difficulty fitting the front slots into the existing bolts on the front side panels. The foam seems to be glued to the plastic backing even at the slot areas which doesn't permit the bolts to slide into the slots. Had to manually separate the foam from the backing.
b) It was also difficult to locate the existing mounting point with the new rear bolt that came with the Sargent seat.
c) This is the most frustrating part. After managing to install the seat with the difficulties faced above, "test" sat on the seat to feel the additional comfort and overall fit. (i) I had chosen the low seat, which I noticed a significant loss in cushioning at the butt area. The seating area conforms to the butt shape well, but felt hard beneath. (ii) Any shifting of the butt towards the rear of the rider's position on the seat would cause the seat pan to bend more, and in my case, the front slots would slide out of the bolts, ie not a secure fit anymore. Can anyone advise on how to resolve this issue? I hate to be adjusting with an Allen Key each time this happens.
The seat is also, IMHO, pricey for the issues faced above.
If I appear to be scathing in my review, I have no intention to except to provide an honest feedback arising from my frustrating during installation.
Thanks.

The Dainese Ducati Flow Jacket (size 54) came foc when I ordered my Hypermotard. I was surprised to see that the jacket didn't even come with a stock backplate, so I scouted around for a suitable backplate. Between the Dainese Wave G and Forcefield backplates, I chose the latter given the higher level of protection for slightly more in cost.
Standard fit into existing slot at the back of jacket. Can't really feel the plate itself, given that it kind of conforms to the shape of the back. However, the one noticeable feature of the backplate is the weight. It is quite heavy to hold but once you put the jacket on, you don't really notice it.
Re protection, I hope I will never have to test its effectiveness. Cheers.

I bought this based on the reviews here. I'd say the reviews have been mostly accurate and reflective of the actual product.
The fit/sizing/feel is good. A little more assured wearing it...
However, I can feel the back protection piece against my tailbone when seated on a normal chair. My main gripe is that, in a warm and humid climate like Southeast Asia, this pair of shorts is and will definitely be warm to riders like myself in spite of the mesh and thin material. Good thing I ride mostly at night when the temperature is much cooler than the stifling daytime heat. On balance, however, I find that the benefits of this pair of shorts outweigh the heat. Better sweat than bleed!
For fitting into normal bottoms, skinny jeans are a no-no. For normal fit jeans, I believe ladies will notice your posterior more often than before since these shorts really enhances the fit.
I bought a pair of basic knee/shin guards separately and both complement each other in terms of fit/comfort/protection. Once again, the Southeast Asian climate doesn't help much, but Safety Over Slight Discomfort!
