There are two Diavels, the xDiavel and the Diavel.

The xDiavel is closer to what you have with the forward fotpegs, and the Diavel with the straight down pegs.

I have no experience with the V4 and I honestly think it was a mistake to abandon the Twin Engine on the Diavel.
The xDiavel has not come in the V4 configuration yet.

Its hard to say what the new bike is like as nobody has ridden one, but my Diavel 1260s is a joy to ride, the shape of the seat provide excellent hip supports you are kept well in place, the ergonomics are great and I have had no issues going on day trips with this bike, not feeling sore in any way getting off it after a day of riding.
On my previous BMW S1000R super naked, I had trouble standing up after a 2 hour spirited ride, and day trips started off nice, but on the way home I had to starte stretching my legs and wanted frequent stops.
Nothing like that on the Diavel.

I think it's a great touring machine, except from the forward footpegs, probably on par with your Springfield, but a bit sportier.
I test rode a Scout and a Chieftain back in 2016, very nice bikes.
