I got the low seat as an extra when I bought the bike it cost £150 and I got the normal seat in a box which I'm going to keep for when I sell the bike (not anytime soon).
I'm 5'7" (1.7m) so the low seat on the high setting means I can flat foot one side which is enough for me. I find it firm but not uncomfortable and was surprise when I was able to ride over 2.5hrs without discomfort, I've not been able to do that before. A combination of the firm seat and relaxed leg position works for me.
When I did my test ride before buying the bike the dealer had a low seat I was able to try, a good ploy from Honda as it sealed the deal for me.
