Single vs double seat

Does anyone know if the single seat is lower, higher or the same compared to the stock double seat?
And how does it feel, softer, harder or the same?

Same position (for me who sits close to the tank) but the feel is different. I find the single seat surface more slippery hence slightly less pleasant... I guess this quit personal. But it looks pretty cool and I put the single seat occasionally, take 10 sec to change.

And to give a complete answer I did not notice a real difference in terms of softer or harder. If I had to chose I would say single seat is slightly harder.

Is it possible to fit the solo seat after removing the rear subframe? How does the motorbike look? I am interested in a lower solo seat without the rear subframe but do not know how to make this configuration work.

Thank you for your input in any case.

Did anyone purchase the aftermarket double seat? My problem with the stock one is, that it is small for taking a passenger.

That should be actually quite easy to achieve.
The rear frame can be removed and single seat can be still placed where stock one is.

Here is a picture of single seat, just image the subframe not being there

However i'm not sure about the "lower" part.

Removing the rear sub-frame may be more effort than it's worth. I can't see a way of doing so besides permanently chopping off the rear.

at 4:00 the guy from JvB says that it's easy to un-install it, just a couple of screws
