xsr700 std seat vs Flat Seat

I recently bought the flat seat of yamaha for xsr700 (scrambler type), for two reasons.
1) I think the standard seat is not so comfortable for the passenger (my girlfriend complained that on longer trips she feels tired and achy)
2) The look the scrambler look seat from Yamaha looks very nice on the bike

For those who have questioned what is the differences between the two seats .... I put some photos
As you can see on the last photo, the chassi is exactly the same on the two seats. The main difference are the shape of the seat and the coating.(I found the seat not slippery such as the standard).
Because the seat is flat, it ends up earning a little extra space for the passenger

And what does your girlfriend say about the new seat? Is it more comfortable now?

I have the same issue with my girlfriend and the stock seat... ;-)

Ahahah my gf said that the stock seat is really comfortable and she enjoys it xD.. Maybe she's just used to our friends' bikes that are way more uncomfortable (like the ducati monster or the ktm duke)! Thanks 4 the foto sergio I really like how the flat seat looks

And I thought my girlfriend was the only one complaining!
Is it worth the cost though? 220e are a bit much, with that kind of money I think I could get a custom leather one!

I paid 148 euros . But you could try to replace the interior foam with gel.
