Le Pera 'Tailwhip UpFront'

Internationally recognized 'boutique' motorcycle seats designer Le Pera's 'Tailwhip UpFront' for 2008 - 2023 (except 2023 and up VVT engine CVO models) is described as "taking the KickFlip one step further."

An established top-seller and genuine Le Pera original concept, the whipped-up tail of the 'KickFlip' combines more passenger comfort with a platform that allows riders to "explore their adventurous side.".

However, the new 'UpFront' gives the driver more ease to reach the handlebars with 6.75" of back support and a generous 11.75" wide seating area - wide enough for comfort, but still a narrow enough profile to be stylish.

The real 'bump' in the new design though is that it moves the driver a full 2" closer to the handlebars.

Available in Double Diamond, Pleated or Basket Weave, features include a durable, black Biker Tec cover with bonded polyester thread for durability, molded Marathon Foam, a 16-gauge powder- coated steel baseplate with carpeted seat bottom and countless custom colors and options.

Le Pera celebrated its 50th anniversary as the market's design leader last year and the still family-owned manufacturer still handcrafts all its seats in-house at its North Hollywood, California headquarters.
