Eat some more skinny.
Grow a thiCC jelly bum,

But seriously, I cannot help you with a brutale seat.
F3's MV corse seat was a bit softer than what came from factory.
Though it was used by a forum member so maybe it was worn in.
MV corse seat an option??

There are some gel options I've spotted before on the forum but maybe some brutale owners can provide a link.

Be patient. You'll adapt very quick.

As an alternative, consider taking the seat unit to a local upholsterer and have him/her insert a gel pad or higher density rubber cushioning.

Phillo,

I found the std. seat pretty uncomfortable so I got a Corbin. All leather with lots of options for finish. Look good as the shape suits the bike. Most importantly a lot more comfortable than the std. seat.

On the downside they're expensive and I had to order through an agent here in Oz, which took a few months. Worth it for me though as 4-5 hours riding is no problem with a few short breaks for fuel etc.

Also try wearing a pair of cycling knicks underneath your jeans whatever (no jocks), they really make a huge difference. Those cyclists spend hours perched on a bike saddle and they're designed for a reason!

Cheers

I think my stock TVL seat is good. I mean I do need to reposition after a couple of hours, but by then it is time to get some gas.

Done a couple of track days and the only criticism is it's not easy to hang off. You sort of sit 'in' it and it grips pretty well. Back and forth no probs. I don't have a lard arse though, skinny fucker!

Track days on a stock TV not looking like an ungainly clown is iffy at best.
TV is the heaviest of the trepistoni sisters, the slowest, least powerful.

The TV rider seat is wider than a standard toilet seat.
So when sitting on that throne for forty minutes get a book or comics...
Cheaper and more better deal rather than try to have seat or undies tailored to fit your butt.

One can't inprove perfect.
Try to move and feel that well designed hard plastic bump riding right into the buttcrack.

Genius pure and simple.
