    @Santhosh Devarasan -it looks like the seat foam of your RX has internally collapsed which happen when the seat foam fibers crack with age and their are no more trapped air bubbles to provide cushioning and support-get a new seat for it-they don't make flat and broad seats like the RX any more.
    Keep the RX.
    Get the FZ25.

    I have a 2010 R15, Did Ladakh on it in 2015 from Bangalore. Same story with another friend of mine with another 2010 R15 & 2012 CBR150R. During the Ladakh trip, the guys with a P150 and Thunderbird 350 had more trouble (physical discomfort due to various reasons) than we did.

    My point is that don't let reviews and other's opinion affect your decision - go with what you'd want to do (buy/retain).

    Just now had this confusion sold my 135 and got a fz 25.
    For your use I would ideally suggest fz 25 as the riding position u don't want to compromise much on the riding position when compared to R15
