The Airhawk solved the uncomfortable seat problem for me on a Vstrom 650.

Yeah, it's pricey at US $150 (ebay stores) but a custom seat will run you more than double that amount. And the Airhawk works.

One Airhawk for sale!
I have one left over - have a custom fitted seat now, so it's surplus, but near as new. It's here in London, will make you a deal! PM me if interested. It's the rectangular one, should fit most seats - of both kinds ;)

Note I will be on the road Thursday, heading for the Belgium and Portugal Meetings, so it will be 2 weeks to ship. US$100.

I had one a few years ago, but it didn't solve my butt-ache problem.

Other riders have used them with great success.

I suggest trying a 1-1.5" or so sheet of high quality comfort-type seating foam. Not expensive and an easy experiment. If it does the trick for you, a sleeve or covering could be easily made. It comes in different densities. This is what's used in airliner seats....where butts must be pleased. :)

I've got one. Couldn't keep it in place very well and really didn't do much for me. I have several friends that really like theirs. Ended up getting a custom seat that solved my issues. I recommend Grant's offer. Remember not to put too much air inside. Just enough to clear the seat with your bum.
