Easy to install. Love the look, perfect match for the original honda seat.
Con: price is a little spendy.

Great backrest!

I ordered this backrest after trying two other brands. This is by far the most supportive and comfortable option out there.

Excellent comfort!

Looks fantastic! Like it is original. Fits bike very well.

Incredible quality, rapid ship and easy install! Highly recommend!


Awesome upgrade to my 2018 RTL. Talk about easy install, wow. Just follow included instructions. As stated you do not have to remove seat! If this 72 year old grandma can do it, anyone can. Great customer service. Andy was very helpful with a question I had. Very fast service too! Best part, makes for a much more enjoyable and comfortable ride😊

This is the best backrest EVER! Love it!

Great communication and customer service. Helped me find exactly what I was looking for.

Love it! I have sciatica and it helps
So much. I highly recommend one to anyone. Good quality.

Best back rest money can buy

I have a 07 Royal Star Tour Deluxe.
I bought my backrest in 07. I installed it and I love the back rest. This is ntc2nd back rest. I had one on my VStar 1100.
I will always buy a utopia back rest. I highly recommend it.
It is the best money can buy

Looks stock Like it came with the bike. Customer service is awesome Thanks Dan.

This product comes with everything you need to install including detailed instructions. It literally took me 15 min to install, and it is completely adjustable. The leather is the same quality as BMW it matches perfectly. supper happy and Dan was helping me get it before my trip thank you guys.


Is there shipping to Saudi Arabia and how long does it take for the shipment to arrive?- UPS problem - delivered 4/15

Have not received it yet, I'm still waiting. Purchase was made on 3-6-24


I am sorry there was such a problem with shipping your backrest. The USPS lost your order and we were not aware that you never received the initial shipment. Once we recognized that there was problem. We did send a second backrest that was finally delivered on March 25th. We do appreciate your business!

Perfect back rest

I bought this for my 09 GS rather than spending $1000 on a custom seat and I love it. It was easy to install and looks and work amazing. Recommend 100%

A Well Run Business and Products

I don't often write reviews, but I am so appreciative of the "top shelf" service and product quality that I received from Utopia. I am so happy that I found them on the internet. From start to finish, from first phone call to installation and use of my Utopia backrest, I could not be happier. Andy, at Utopia, took my phone call, and he made certain that I had all of the information I needed to make my purchase with confidence. He (Andy) went the extra mile to verify the available inventory, and he hustled to get my order shipped that same day. My new backrest arrived well packaged, and the installation instructions were clear and easy to follow. The quality of workmanship on my new backrest was A+, and the comfort of my riding position, my body support, and my riding stamina are a complete "game changer".
Thank you Andy, and Thank You Utopia for your customer care, your integrity, and your "top shelf" product and service.

Braden, Thanks so much for your kind words. Please be safe and enjoy your ride!

Great back rest and a great company

I was recommended this back rest by my local Kawasaki dealership. I sent several emails to which Andy replied promptly and professionally. At one point he even sent me his cell phone number and told me to call him so we could make sure we had the details of the order worked out. I actually installed the seat on both the Kawasaki Vaquero and also a Kawasaki voyager seat. The install was easy and straightforward and it took maybe an hour and twenty minutes to install the hardware on both seats. The mounting hardware was very thick and sturdy and the rest is extremely comfortable. I like how it is adjustable back-and-forth, and that it pivots to fit the contour of your back also. It appears to be very well-made all over. I’m extremely satisfied with it and I’m looking forward to some long rides. Thank you for the help

Perfect thank you.

Makes your Police Bike ultimately comfortable

I always loved the police (tractor) seats over a standard Harley seat. However, the addition of the Utopia backrest made the combination absolutely the most comfortable ride available. A major bonus is the ability for the backrest to swivel down and forward when riding cone patterns. IMO there are very few mods that actually improve comfort, and the Utopia backrest is one of the best that do.

Bar covers fine, honestly though really not worth the money

Love the fact that they fit on stock seating as the stock seat fits me just fine just needed the back support they're awesome!

Great product!!

I received my backrest yesterday. After a few (personal) adjustments, it feels great. I am dealing with back issues and this product should help. I took the spider for a few rides and so far, it's making the ride much more pleasurable. The installation was easy and the instructions were well done. Thank you for a great product!


I was looking for something for my lower back pain after riding. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical whenever you see all five star reviews.

Boy was I wrong about being skeptical!
It's almost magical how the improvement is the instant you take off on the bike after installing it!

Instructions were pretty straightforward.

The only area I ran into problems with and sawing the foam, is trying to figure out the 'angle' of the knife to get it to meet up where the bracket drilled holes are underneath! I actually cut a little slit in the plastic underneath just so I was able to see where it was lining up at.

So that was a bit of a bear! But after being persistent and then going for a first ride I could not believe how comfortable it was! It has not been THAT comfortable since I bought the bike!

One other magical improvement for me was :
EVERY SINGLE STOP I come to, they are perfect! All on an even keel!

It started doing that without any effort the instant the backrest was installed!
I do not know if it is from a slight difference in center of gravity from the mass of the backrest making the bike have a perfect cg......
If it's automatically improving the posture of the rider to where he's sitting correctly now and probably not having to put pressure on the handlebars to support his back when he comes to a stop!

Every single one has been perfectly smooth last few days.

So I would like to read if others notice it also? Stops will be smoother and straight upright

Great backrest!

It was a little nerve wracking cutting a hole in the back of the driver’s seat but it looks factory after the install. I like that it folds forward so I don’t have to raise my leg so high to get on and off the bike. I’m only 5’7”. It makes it a pretty comfortable road bike now. The engineering and craftsmanship is amazing. I honestly have no complaints about it at all.

Very Very Satisfied

Extremely satisfied with my purchase of the BMW R18B Drivers Seat back. Highly Recommend this company. I sent a message to inquire about the ease of removal.... and Andy, the owner promptly called to answer all my questions. Very friendly and helpful. I placed my order and to my surprise, received a message less than an hour later that the package had been shipped. It arrived in 2 days, perfectly wrapped, everything included and simple instructions. And the most important thing, I love the fit and finish.... color matches, material matches and even the white stitching is right on. There is good up - down adjustability and also fore an aft to give you that perfect fit for long rides. Reasonably priced, comfortable and excellent fit and finish. Highly Recommend.... and NO, I am in no way related or paid to give a positive review. Just a Happy Customer!!!!

this will be number 6

i could say all kinds of good things about this company but you know how i feel just by knowing this will be my 6th one in 20 years. if i could find any fault it would be to distance themselves from govex, they wanted so much personal evidence of military or 1st responder service that i wound up erasing it when they wanted a copy of my V.A. disability letter, i did 6 years in the military during viet nam, then 25 years in law enforcement, my retirement info. is certainly non of their business

utopia is one of the finest bunch of folks i have dealt with, selling super high quality products.

hanks all for a great product. The Utopia Driver Backrest came today and I installed in in about an hour and a half. Great directions, easy to do. Awesome product to chase the wind on my 2013 Can Am RT SE5 Spyder. Ryde on!
