Is the Ducati racing seat still pretty padded? The description says that it positions the rider more forward, which I think is the opposite of what I would want. Compared to the hyperstrada stock seat, are you good for long rides?

Does the racing seat have same mounting hardware? Like, just a stock seat with different skin/padding?

Got my Ducati racing seat today (code 96880082A). Here you can see some photos in comparison with the stock seat.
Just rode 5 km so I can't say much yet.
My first impressions are:
  • The racing seat is harder than the stock seat (I can feel my sitting bones very slightly) yet not uncomfortable as it is shaped rounder.
  • You can move easier (in all directions) and feel the bike better on the racing seat compared to the stock where you are more passively 'locked' in your position.
  • You sit a bit higher on the racing seat and do not have the back support of the stock seat. Thus you feel a bit more sitting 'on' the bike.
I like it so far!

That's the one for the older hypermotards (1100, 796). I doubt it will fit on the 821.

The racing seat for the hyper 821 models has the code 96880082A. Here is the link at Pure Ducati:

Did you say back support on the stock seat??? I don't feel like I have any....The racing seat looks like it would provide it because its cupped rather than straight across.

It'd be nice if Ducati or another aftermarket company made a real touring seat for this bike. Something like a HD sundowner, thats comfy but can also absorb some vibrations.
