Uncomfortable seating structure

A common complaint with off-road motorcycles is the seats. The manufacturers make the seats a bit too high, making them uncomfortable for shorter riders at times, and it even prevents them from going for a long ride because it hurts their backside and buttock, which causes noticeably significant pain. This not only spoils the entire riding experience but can be dangerous as it distracts riders’ attention from the road. Furthermore, comfort also depends on the seat cover. Unlike vinyl, leather does not stretch, which makes for a more rigid seat surface and makes it uncomfortable for the rider. Hence, owing to all such factors related to the uncomfortable seating structure of off-road motorcycles hamper the market’s growth during the forecast period.
