I know the specs say it is leather, but is there some sort of waterproof membrane made into the leather so water will bead off? I would imagine so.

Just got an email from Pro Italia in Los Angeles with accessories available for order now, shipping March 16. They say the Classic seat is leather.

Ducati Scrambler Classic Leather Seat: 96880161A


Full list of accessories available for pre-order here:

Motorcycle Parts - Pro Italia

Cool, thanks for that...but what about the exhaust options? I've seen prices listed for the 2-2 and 2-1, but nothing for the full Termignoni high mount. Also have seen more hard type carriers from Ducati official shown but not in an accessories brochure. I'm guessing they're finalizing all the accessories and haven't gotten them all out there yet.

I just ordered my Classic in Germany, and the Sales Guy told me its a fake Leather seat. So i guess the seat is waterproof

My Classic was under heavy (very heavy!) rain yesterday and it's perfectly fine. No water in the seat or anywhere on the bike. I can say that it's waterproof.

The classic seat IS made of leather - and it IS treated to be waterproof.

The first time you get it wet, you will see the waterproofing treatment appear as a slightly "milky" looking substance.

It's weird that there's a discrepancy. Is it a hybrid seat like a Corbin? The part I sit on is leather but the back and sides are black vinyl.
