Laugh 2012 Ducati MultiStrada 1200: New Seat Design

FWIW, as far as I can tell, I "think" my PP rear seat, doesn't "overlap" the rider's seat as much as other Multistrada seats I have seen...

Could just be an optical illusion, but that's the way it appears to look, to me.

I second that, the over sculpt does look more ergonomic not so angular, because the last time I looked at my gluteus maximus it is round and does not have any angular sharp edges to it. It looks like they extended the back of the passenger seat or shortened the fount a bit for more wiggle room for the fat asses out their.
