    New V2

    Hello, Does anyone have a new V2 they can post a pic of the under side of the seat and where it mounts on the bike?  I have a 2020 950S and looking to add the V2 seat.  It looks like all the part numbers match up and the body panels just below the seat should bolt right on.  I just dont know how the seat locks in.  Thanks for your help!

    The 950/950S have bolts on each side of the seat .... the V2/V2S does not.
    Kind Regards,

    Yes, I am aware of that.  The subframe is identical, same part number and everything.  Just trying to decide if worth the cost to make the change.  Thanks.

    The riders seat has "dogs" that push into "holes" at the "tank". There is no locking device for the rider seat.
    It is held in place simply by the pillion seat overlap.

    The pillion seat has dogs that  push into slots at the tail, first
    The pillion seat overlaps the rider seat.
    The pillion seat has a pin that pushes vertically down into a conventional hole with the key lock mechanism.
    It needs a really good push over the pin to make it engage.

    When I got my 950S seat rebuilt, the guy forgot to put the bolts back in the rider's seat.  I hope to get them off him if I head that way, but for the last 10,000 kms, I haven't needed them, as posted, the seat just locks in anyway.
    It’s later than you think.

    Like Steelcity i am investigating to change the 950s seat for the V2 seat because of the smaller width of the V2 seat.
    @Steelcity: did you really install the V2 seat and did you add the left and right fairing under the seat like they are on the V2 bike?
    If yes,  does the fairing fit on the 950(s)

    I have not made the change but plan to.  I did try to order the seat a few months ago but the order was cancelled as the seat was "unavailable".  There is a local dealer to me that will have a V2 in stock in the next few months, I would like to sit on the seat and see how comfortable it is before spending the money.  I do believe it will all work as I have researched extensively and all the part numbers match up.  I will cost about $1000.00 bc will have to purchase the red painted side pieces that run just under/along the seat.

    Thanks for your quick reply, I am planning to try the V2 seat tomorrow at my Ducati dealer. Like you say: try before you buy. If the width and height are okay  I was also planning to go for the whole package: rider seat, pillion seat, red side panels left and right. Here in the Netherlands I calculated about €800,- for the parts.
    I wondered whether the left side panel will fit out of the box because of the hole it has for the end of the rear shock.

    For that amount of money you can also have the original seat and pillion modified and re-upholstered in a fabric and pattern of choice and still have € left to fill her up a few times.
    I personally am not too fond of those red panels under the seat of the V2.
