Look for a good gel seat solution to make it comfortable for long rides.
In fact the specs say the seat has 15% or so, more padding as compared to the old one. I've been on a T120 for a good duration and definitely the seat is more comfortable. Street Twin being compact, as you mentioned, it has a low seat. Which is good for people like me, I am about 5'10". But the padding is seriously not as good as the bigger seats.
I tried hunting for Gel seats, but didn't find any good options online.

Regarding heating, engine does heat up when riding in lets say 45 deg summer heat. But heat dissipation is also good. I've not ridden more than 150 kms on a single stretch, so this distance never made it uncomfortable to ride, heating wise.
