Hi there, true about all these things but are you 100% positive it is taller? I have to say on my 696 (not sure about 1100) the standard seat and touring seat are identical in height. Different shape, consistency to foam and cover but I honestly can’t feel the difference in height. The Touring seat is definitely a great upgrade if you like your family jewels and particularly if you sit in the saddle for longer trips. I think it is one of the highest recommended upgrades to a 696 but not sure if same can be said for 1100.
I do not deny it for an 1100 I just can’t vouch for it personally as I don’t have one.
