Before y'all go haring off to buy new seats try putting an Alaska Leathers sheepskin on the stock NC700X seat. I used the one off my old cruiser but they likely make something that fits it better by now. A nose strap would be good for those who stand up now and again. One of the larger problems with the stock seat is the upholstery: it's very slippery. The rider tends to slide toward the nose of the bike and, under moderately hard braking, all the way up on the "frunk." The sheepskin takes away the slippery and after that the seat ain't so bad.
