I got this info that the Ducati touring seat increased the seat height on the Monster 696/1100.

I wonder if that is true and if the increase is significant or not. Tall rider thanks you in advance.

Before the comfy seat I could easily stand up on the ground and be at least 2 inches on the seat. Now on the comfy one I can still stand up probably with about an inch of wiggle room. If you are on the taller side, you will not notice the height difference, only the comfort!:D

1 inch is a lot and would give plenty much more room for my legs, trust me. A seat height of 32.9 inches (31.9 standard) on the M1100 would be great, but I really doubt it goes that high with the touring seat.

There's a low seat option available to reduce the seat height by approx. 20mm (0.79 inches). Why not a high seat option? There are tall riders out there too!

It's more about image, eventually you'll have this giant black brick on the seat and it won't look that good.

Giant black brick? I'm only hoping for a 20mm/0.79 inches higher seat... If nicely shaped, it won't affect the image at all.
