OK, so I ordered the standard seat cover/foam. Installation was a head-scratcher. Had to heat the cover and use a spot of 3M 77 adhesive in a couple of spots to get the cover to lay right.
Translation: I have no upholstery talent, whatsoever.
It certainly is better than the factory seat - but I'm a bit height-challenged and it raised me up a fuzz. In hindsight, I should have ordered the lower version. Haven't had it out for more than a 150 mile run just yet but (so far) I'm happy with it, especially compared to the OEM seat.
Yes, I have installed the lowering link and dropped the front an inch already.
Not bad, though, because this is a light bike.
