Naturally, we set out to design a seat to fit the bike visually as well as improving the quality of your ride… Corbin’s saddle does just that! Our high density Comfort Cell foam allows a sleek profile while providing a firm supportive ride that lasts. Rider seating is ergonomically shaped to fit the curve of your body and provide better weight distribution. This also helps to eliminate the centralized pressure felt from the stock seat. In the nose area, we sculpt the saddle narrow to allow for good ground reach.
Passenger seating area is designed with a neutralized platform to curb sliding forward in the saddle. Dished shaping provides an excellent contact patch while maintaining a clean look. This gives your passenger excellent comfort. For additional comfort and feeling of security, the Corbin saddle works with an optional removable passenger backrest. Simple to install with just a single bolt under the saddle and fully adjustable to provide a tailored fit.
We offer several backrest models to suit your taste visually and the degree of support desired. For the best combination of looks and support, we recommend the #02-SB model Ovalbac backrest shown. This backrest provides a generous, contoured contact patch for excellent support. Angle adjustment is simple and can be performed without removing the saddle or backrest from the bike. Please note, the Corbin backrests will not work in the saddle if you are using the BMW trunk &/or carrier.
Notice how close the Corbin saddle fits to the tank, tail section and sides… this kind of fit comes only from a Corbin saddle and our unique Fibertech basepan. Our rigid base material not only fits perfect to the bike, but provides a firm foundation to support the carefully designed foam shape. Corbin’s ergonomic shaping creates a visually pleasing look on the motorcycle and adds to the custom appeal. We’ve made this seat design as low as possible without impacting ride comfort. This makes the Corbin model slightly lower than the standard BMW seat, but taller than the LOW version.
For an added luxurious touch, this saddle is available with the option of electric seat heaters. With the flip of a conveniently located switch built into the left side of the saddle, both the rider and passenger seating platforms will heat up and maintain temperature automatically. Simple to install with just a pigtail wiring to your bike’s battery. All other components are built into the saddle and come preinstalled.
On top, we include genuine leather seating panels for a luxurious ride. Our standard design includes Black natural grain leather seating with Asphalt vinyl contrasting sides and nose for clean, sporty looks. For ultra clean looks we do not recommend using a “welt” on this saddle model.
We use genuine leather seating in all of our saddle models because it breathes with your body and will conform along with the foam shape during break in. This provides an added bit of luxury on those long rides. In the side panels, we use a coordinating vinyl material that will support the foam shape and keep the saddle looking sharp longer. Be sure to care for you leather saddle properly with a quality conditioner like our Saddle Cream. This will help the leather to remain supple and weather resistant while it matures gracefully.
Corbin’s saddle is designed to work with the optional BMW saddlebags and trunk as shown. Please note, however, the passenger backrest will not work with the trunk carrier plate installed. Clearance has also been created under the nose of the seat to work with the BMW tank bag.
Mounts to the motorcycle just like stock and secures with the BMW key lock system. All brackets are included and premounted on the seat so it’s ready for immediate installation.
Here’s something new… Want to add a bit of convenient storage without installing a trunk? Corbin’s glovebox is an excellent solution for all your quick-access stuff. Simply replace the finishing plate on the #02-SB Ovalbac or #297-SB backrest and you’ve just added four liters of locking storage capacity. It’s plenty for a couple bottles of water, cell phone, spare gloves, maps and other incidentals. Constructed of durable ABS plastic and available plain or prepainted black.
