Specialized Toupe sizing

Does anyone know what the standard (stock) size toupe saddle is on a 2008 Specialized Tarmac Expert (52cm)?

I don't see it on the website...

thanks!

so, out of curiosity, how does one decide which is the right size for this saddle? Sit on all of them? I'm trying to imagine the measuring fitting for this...

All Specialized dealers have an Assometer (that's not really the name but that is what it measures). You sit on it and it leaves two indents where your sitbones are located, the LBS then measures the distance between the two, look up the number on a fancy chart and then tell you what size, of the three available, saddle you should ride.
