I've got an '09 green V, and recently had a local upholsterer take out about 25% of the foam to test lowering the oem slightly. I'm one of the few who does not have an issue with the seat. I'm now leaning forward more than I want, but if I do a longer ride I'll slap on the sheep skin.
Now for a repeat of an old joke. What does a Versys seat and a cheap hotel have in common? No ballroom.
