Visually, Thruxton OEM and Thruxton gel seat are the same. But, I can ride at most trough a tank (100-120 miles) with the OEM. The gel seat allows to keep riding. For example, Montreal to Toronto (350 miles), with no pain.
Take care

Not in 2004. I still have the OEM one. The padding is completely different.
Whatever you say. I have an older OEM one myself and a brand new Gel seat. They're completely the same seat. The only difference is the price ... oh wait, there one other difference, there's a cloth tag sewn on the Gel seat. Debunked. :hammer:

There's another difference too: The Thruxton gel seat lists for $225 or something like that and is available online for under $200. The stock Thrux seat is (according to my dealer) a different part number and costs a lot more, like $275 or $280 or something. I will never understand Triumph's parts pricing.
