Ducati Comfort Seat

Has anyone looked into purchasing the comfort seat? I assume that our bikes come with the "low" seat and to my bony posterior it's a bit uncomfortable. I also like the fact that the comfort seat is 25mm taller. I'm 6'2" and mostly leg, so the additional height is not a concern. I just want to make sure it's worth the money, though honestly, I feel it's a bargain at $340.

I thought our bikes came with the standard seat. The low seat drops about 3/4" in height, where the comfort seat adds the same. I would have to look at the 'fiche and get the part number of the stock seat then compare it to the low seat. But, I'm drinking a cold one right now and simply don't want to take the time. My Hyper was the way I described, tho. They had three...low, stock, and touring.

Our bikes come with the standard seat. I went for the low seat (being vertically challenged) which lowers 20mm and makes it just a little easier to get one foot down (I never get BOTH feet down and don't really see the need to do that). I would think that the comfort seat would probably give a similar height difference with a plus factor

I tried one out and had mixed feelings about it. It's taller, flatter and firmer, all things I liked. The down side is that because it's taller, flatter and firmer the edges/corners of the pad are really pronounced under your thighs; I'm not sure if that will "break in" and how it will feel on a longer ride. I like the idea of it for the same reasons you do, and I may just bite the bullet on one to find out for myself if those misgivings are valid.

It's Italian. If I can get it to start, it'll win.

Thanks for the responses, guys. psyopper, if you do give it a go I'd be very interested to hear what your take on it is. My issue is always my butt rather than my thighs (I know what you mean about the pressure on the high inside of the thighs) so I'm hoping that can be addressed. As for this being 1 of 3 different options, that makes total sense. I'm not worried about the additional height and in face, I sort of like to sit high in the seat (the SS feels a bit low to me) so as long as there in an increase in comfort, I'm without a doubt going to pick one up.

Sorry, Ace, I thought the seat that came standard was the comfort seat. Especially since they included the "bun warmer" feature for free!

I am 6'0", you have a couple of inches of height on me. I imagine in your case a taller seat would take away some of the wear and tear on the legs during a long ride. Just make sure you keep the seat warmer intact when you upgrade.

I've got the 2 seats, standard & confort. Confort has 2 centimeters more, so a little bit higher, you feel the difference. It's more comfort, that's sure, for the passenger it's better. Regarding the look, not much difference.
I'll add a picture if you want one.
