The seat is much the same size with a key difference being the comfort level is greatly improved by two factors.
1. The foam is much thicker and somehow softer while still maintaining shape and firmness.
2. There is a small built in back support in the rear 1/3 of the seat. It does push you forward and initially I thought this would be a problem as like you I tended to sit further back in the seat however within a few rides it seems to have adapted to my style.
I have no idea other than cost why this is not the stock seat but I do know one thing and thats that I could never go back now....
Buy one you'll love it
