Upgraded my Aerox scooter’s seat for comfortable long rides

Had the seat sculpted to fit me better which did compromise the rear seat room.

BHPian Riroox recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Another update/upgrade to my Aerox,

Got the seat reshaped and had extra cushion added, as well as the necessary change in seat cover at Rao Seat Covers, Bangalore. I am taller than typical at 189CM or about 6 feet and 2 inches in height and so had the seat sculpted to fit me better which did compromise the rear seat room but not by much. Further still had more foam added to increase the seat height both front and back and that does make it a little difficult to climb onto the rear seat.

Liking the new seat setup up and is finally comfortable for a 2-hour commute or a 4-hour ride. Haven’t yet been able to go for longer rides.

I need to do something about the front suspension. It squats to about 75% travel when I sit on the scooter and to nearly full travel if someone sits behind too. I, for certain had thought that there was a manufacturing fault with it but then found out online and later at the showroom that is how it is supposed to be, so I tried to get the oil replaced to 20w instead of the alleged stock 10w but the mechanic could not as the shock is sealed up top with a c clip holding in the lid and for now I am stuck with it. Thinking of getting good quality adjustable front forks, probably USD and just adding the upgraded braking system while I am there. Also, am I the only one who wants to very much upgrade the front suspension before tackling the rear? Just wondering…
