Does anyone know for sure what the enduro's seat is made of?

In the photos it looks like leather...sort of...

I know that Ducati is touting the nice leather of the Classic's saddle, you'd think they would do the same for the Enduro if it was in fact leather.

Good question,
i would say if they have not stated thats is leather, then i would guess it some other type of synthetic material. Hope i am wrong
But you are right we could do with more info

i hope it's not real leather as a synthetic version will take on more abuse and over the long term will hold up much better.

I went to see and touch the Urban Enduro at EICMA in Milan. The seat was a real letdown. Felt low quality and more plastic than leather. I am sure the durability is better than the nice Classic seat, and the ribbed design is fine. The Brown colour of the seat is different to the Classic seat. The green colour of the bike is also strange. Could have been
OK in real Army green, but this colour? Thats why Im hoping for an all Black version of the bike.

The true color of the bike made me switch from the enduro to the classic. I would love the enduro in black or red


And I do believe the Classic seat is leather. Don't know of the quality. I have never settled on an OEM seat even when it is an upgrade. I have been happiest with Corbin, sargent and custom seats by Boss Hog in Texas (Harley mostly)

whats the seat on a monster 696?
It's a fairly cheap feeling vinyl. The seats on the Monster 796 and 1100 are MUCH nicer than that of the 696. In fact I took a silly artistic photo of the 796 last weekend because the texture looks really cool up close. It gives you an idea of the quality:

Hi Just had it confirmed from Ducati UK the Enduro has a brown leather seat. :)
