Want to upgrade my seat, any suggestions?

The stock seat on the 1199 is pretty uncomfortable. I've seen the "comfort seat" available for purchase on the internet but I've heard it makes the rider sit a bit higher on the bike. I'm a shorter guy so when I stop i'm pretty much on my tip toes as it is. Anyone have any input on this or have purchased this comfort seat and have any reviews on it? Mahalo.

There are lots of various opinions on this, so I'm not sure you're going to be any closer to an answer. You may consider a new cover for the stock seat and perhaps adding gel. Luimoto is one such brand, but there are others.

Some threads here, here and here.

I have the Ducati Performance seat...its thicker than the stock and feels a little more comfortable and helps your gonads hitting the tank under heavy braking

Just to clarify. There are TWO DP seats. Comfort and Race.
