    Indian Claims Industry-First With New ClimaCommand Classic Seat

    [​IMG]
    The following press release from Indian Motorcycle describes the new ClimaCommand Classic Seat, which Indian claims brings unique heating and cooling seat technology to the motorcycle industry. Indian says the seat is already shipping to dealers, and available on its web site. 16 models (dating back to 2016) allow installation of the new seat. The price of the seat is $1,199.99. Here is the press release:

    MINNEAPOLIS (June 22, 2020)Indian Motorcycle, America’s First Motorcycle Company, today announced a revolutionary new technology geared to improved rider comfort through a patent-pending system that delivers superior cooling for a more pleasant riding experience in warm weather.

    The all-new ClimaCommand Classic Seat delivers both heating and cooling to riders and passengers and raises the bar for cooling thanks to three key elements:

    • A proprietary thermoelectric module that pumps heat away from the rider
    • A patent-pending ducting system for cooling the thermoelectric module
    • Graphene, a highly conductive and flexible material that optimizes the distribution of heating or cooling while maintaining superior comfort
    Indian Motorcycle’s thermoelectric technology is much more effective than the automotive market standard of HVAC convection systems. A critical performance benefit of the ClimaCommand technology is that it actually produces a surface that’s cold to the touch, rather than merely pushing cool air through perforations in the surface in the manner that HVAC system offerings operate.

    “Despite advancements in heating and cooling for seats, we had yet to see a cooling technology that truly eliminated the discomfort of hot-weather, and with ClimaCommand, our engineering team has finally solved this problem,” said Ross Clifford, Vice President of Parts, Garments, and Accessories at Indian Motorcycle. “Our thermoelectric technology paired with graphene material is truly a game-changer, and another example of Indian Motorcycle bringing difference-making innovation to the market.”

    To accomplish conduction heating and cooling, a thermoelectric module located within the seat directly regulates the temperature. Electricity is applied to a thermoelectric module, causing one side of the module to absorb heat and the opposing side to dissipate heat. By reversing electrical flow, the hot and cold temperatures alternate sides. A graphene material, which is a nanomaterial created from 100% carbon atoms, is then used to ensure the heating and cooling is dispersed throughout the entire seat.

    The well-cushioned ClimaCommand Classic Seat delivers unprecedented comfort with Thunderstroke models. Independent rider and passenger controls (low, medium, high) allow the rider and passenger to remain in command of their heating and cooling levels. With no perforations, the seat’s vinyl cover is highly-durable and water and UV-resistant. Passengers can add more comfort with Armrest Pads and a Trunk Backrest Pad, both designed and developed to seamlessly pair with the new ClimaCommand Classic Seat.

    It’s important to note that the ClimaCommand Classic Seat is not Ride Command-integrated. However, Ride Command-integrated versions of the ClimaCommand Seat will be available for the 2020 Chieftain and Roadmaster later this year.

    The ClimaCommand Classic Seat is now shipping to dealers and available at IndianMotorcycle.com.

    In addition to the all-new ClimaCommand Classic Seat, Indian Motorcycle is introducing an array of new parts and accessories for Scout and FTR 1200 models. New Semi-Rigid Scout Saddlebags allow Scout riders to pack for the long haul, while FTR 1200 riders can select from high or low mount carbon-fiber Akrapovič exhaust options, several new airbox tank cover options, new billet aluminum Rizoma mirrors, and a carbon fiber nacelle to enhance the high-performance design of the FTR 1200.

    I honestly checked the date of this post, expecting it to be from April 1.

    I would be interested in one if it came in tan. I emailed them earlier in the week asking if will be an option and haven't heard anything back yet. I know black is more popular but it can't cost that much to switch vinyl colors during manufacturing. I have only used the heating feature on mine a couple times, I think I would use the cooling more often. Gets a little sticky in these parts this time of year.
    Or should I say, these parts get a little sticky this time of year? :confused:
    Either way works I guess.

    Corbin started selling them last year. There's clearly a market.

    I thought it was odd they stuck this in there, at the end:

    "In addition to the all-new ClimaCommand Classic Seat, Indian Motorcycle is introducing an array of new parts and accessories for Scout and FTR 1200 models. New Semi-Rigid Scout Saddlebags allow Scout riders to pack for the long haul, while FTR 1200 riders can select from high or low mount carbon-fiber Akrapovič exhaust options, several new airbox tank cover options, new billet aluminum Rizoma mirrors, and a carbon fiber nacelle to enhance the high-performance design of the FTR 1200."
