I also have the racing seat and love it. Can't go back to the standard seat now...

The foam is not soft, but the shape supports you really well. I did 300 miles with no complaints.

I too got the racing seat and love it. I just felt cramped with the stock hyperstrada seat (long legs).

Discovered they changed the mid seat "hook".

I had to remove my little risers I made so the old seat would fit easier. The seat retention bracket was too high with the new seat design.

Typical Ducati. Make an "improvement" without notifying anyone that compatibility issues might follow.

Well - they wouldn't want to admit a mistake and have to replace every prior seat. Did anyone at motard R&D ever try to put the seat on - an oversight?
