Not true, I fitted a gel pad into my comfort seat, in which you cut the original foam out to the size and shape o the gel pad. Then fit the original cover back on, so the seat is same size and shape of the standard but with the added benefit of a gel pad. Which does improve comfort.
I also have the ducati racing seat, which is very hard, and only use when doing a track day or short blast.

Yeah that's what I was thinking about getting. Also saw a used Corbin that looks as though it might have the extra room I'm looking for but the seller can't say for sure if it will work on my '16 strada 939 so I don't know if I want to take the chance that it might not work.

Page 1 shows with great detail the difference between the OE and Race seats.

Guess I should have read the whole thread huh? lol. Looks like the race seat is the shape I'm looking for but it also looks like it might add some height as well? How much higher is the race over the stocker? I'm not 100% sure but I might have the journey/low seat on mine. Guess I'll need to pull it off and see what part # it is. I've seriously considered having my seat reworked but I think I will pick up a race seat and if I don't like it then I'll have that one reworked and still have my stock seat to fall back on if I still don't like the race.

raceseat is a lot higher and harder.
you can feel that with the feet, but even more you feel it because you sit more on the bike (like on a motard) and not in the bike (like on a touring bike).
in my opinion the seat transforms the bike really

Race seat is quite a bit taller- probably 2 inches higher than stock. I cant quite flat foot the bike when that seat is on, but that's no biggie since it's so light. I'm 5'10" with a 32" inseam. I have done 500 mile days on that seat and while I wouldn't call it plush it was acceptable.

The comparison photos show the difference between the two seats.

The difference isn't so much height as shape. Funny how small differences in shape can affect how the reach to the ground can be affected. Slide forward or back and the reach to the ground can change a lot.

Sitting on the KonTour seat is completely different. Higher when sitting in the sweet spot, I have the leg room needed for comfort. Slide forward and the reach to the ground was the same as the race seat.

On cross country touring bikes many, like me, spend fortunes on finding the right seat. 1,000+ mile days requires a comfortable seat when you have a tender bottom, like mine.

I'll probably try out a race seat. Anyone lookin to sell theirs? lol. I am a bit worried about the added height. Even with the low seat I'm up on my tip toes. 2 inches higher would mean I would have to shift off to 1 side and barely be able to get 1 foot down. I think it's worth a shot though. If it's impossible or too uncomfortable then I'll just get it re-worked and go from there.

So I was wondering if you guys can confirm something for me? There are 5 seats available for the strada/motard? The standard seat (possibly part #59610741B), the journey seat which I currently have (part # 96880062A), the low seat (part #96880072A), the racing seat (part #96880082A), and the seat for the SP models (possibly part #59521862A)? I can't seem to find definite part numbers for the standard seat or the SP seat. Also, all seats are interchangeable with the 821/939/SP models 2013 thru 2016? From the looks of it the older 796/1100 seat definitely will not work? Just curious cause I'm looking at buying a used seat and I don't want to waste money buying one that won't work on my Hyper. As long as it will work on my bike I know that if I don't like the seat I'll be able to take it to a local guy to get it re-worked.
