Stradale - Seat for comfort

Hi,

So is the Stradale seat the same as the Rivali? Any recommendations on seats, rebuild or replace for more arse comfort. Tank range allows for a stretch but a long ride and my arse is aching like an (well I don't know but I could only imagine) aching arse.

I have 2 seat pans, one original with the butt nugget and a leather one (less comfortable surprisingly).

Any recommendations for New Zealand seat upholsterers who know the ropes?

The Stradale seat fits a post 2015 Rivale,
or Rivale with the 16 litre tank.


Rode the first day for 600 miles with the original Stradale seat. A true PIA.


Exchanged the ungainly Stradale seat with one that was on a Rivale in the show-room.
Long & narrow flat Rivale seat is nice and comfy on the Stradale.


Can't move on the original uncomfortable fugly Stradale seat with the hump.

I ended up finding one on eBay that had been custom shaped/recovered, and though it's definitely an improvement over stock, I'm still tempted to try the Rivale seat - specifically the Corse one which I believe is meant to be more comfortable.
