Slippery seat

Yay! Just picked up my crossrunner today... Absolutely love it already. Anyone else feel like their seat has been polished making it slippery (in leathers)? My first junction unexpectedly slid me forwards almost into the tank.

Yep, that's how they are on the first model....
Fortunately, the previous owner of my bike had the seat recovered with grippy material :)

Same here. Too slippery.
I read about new model with no slippery seat: maybe we will see on the Italian exhibition

Sorry for the delay in writing news on this discussion.
I confirm: during the Rome exhibition Motodays I saw a news seat model for crossrunner and it looks like a no slippery one.
But, BUT...Honda Staff explain me that the new seat is very expensive (about 300€ or more)

Sometimes you can just order the cover.

Until you change your seat, or get recovered, Just buy a length of anti slip rubber mat, used for under rugs on wooden floors. . . . It sells for around £1 in England.
Take off the seat, wrap it round, and put the seat back on. Nice and neat, and no longer slippery!

I use a small piece for the pillion seat whenever we go out.
