Good comparison (as usual) Tony. The new lowered seat seems to have less padding. How's it like in terms of comfort?
Sorry, I can't comment on comfort as I've never used it. I've sold several dozen and maybe someone on this forum bought one and can comment on the comfort?
Personally I don't find that more padding = greater comfort.
IMO it's the shape of the seat that matters most.
I had my OEM seat on my Ninja 650R reshaped and removed some foam in the process, but I find the new seat MUCH more comfortable than stock:
Cool vid of the guy making my seat:

Called a local upholstry shop. They gave me phone number to a guy who lives a few minutes from my house. Dropped off the seat on Thursday, guy calls me on Friday. Seat is done. Looks really good. 50 bucks. Looks more flatter. Less sitting in a 2x4.
Will let you know how comfort is this weekend.
