The standard seat has allot more padding than the low seat. If I was buying a Trophy in the USA I would make it part of the deal I could try both seats and keep the one I prefer.
I think the dealers would soon feed it back to Triumph that US riders would like the same seat as the rest of the world.Not only is it more comfortable but it gives you more leg room as well.

Manutraff, like all the US bikes mine came with the low seat, I was not satisfied so the dealer let me try out a comfort seat for a day ride.   I declined purchase since, at least to me, the comfort seat was just more of the same only with more padding.   It still seemed to get me right in the tail bone.   I am only 5'8" but what I did was try the low seat in the high position and added a sheepskin and now I can go all day with little to no affect other than getting a bit stiff but that comes from age   :001:.

No way on getting that to work with any of the U.S. dealers that I know of. Tried that with mine and he said to get the standard seat I had to order it since it doesn't come standard. WTH! Standard is not standard? Speaking of which, anyone need a low seat that I'll let go cheap? :001:

I purchased the comfort seat. Gave me a better riding position but comfort was only slightly better.  Put an airhawk on it and couldn't be happier. Best $150 I've spent.

I have an airhawk but do not really like it you have to get the air pressure just right.  I have an Alaskan sheepskin that I like I also have a bead rider that I haven't used much but seemed great.  I am just happy for normal commute (up to 200 miles a day) with the standard (standard for us in the UK) seat.  Someone else on here suggested the bead sat.
