GT… from the Italian phrase Gran Turismo which is used to signify a vehicle able to make long-distance, high-speed journeys in both comfort and style. For BMW’s new 1600cc K-bike that sounds about right!
Naturally we’ve taken that comfort to the next level with our ergonomic sculpting and wide supportive bucket shaping. Notice how the shape of the seat is lowest in the center which relives central pressure from your tailbone. This shape is contoured out to cradle your body and disperse weight over a greater area. This all adds up to comfort and support that will keep you in the saddle long enough to use up that seven gallon fuel tank!
Naturally we have built electric seat heaters into our saddle design that integrate with the BMW control module. A conveniently located switch along the side for the passenger works just like the stock unit. Temperature is controlled and maintained just like the OEM seat to provide luxurious heat on those chilly mornings. To add a touch of class and conceal the heating pads, we use a tasteful twin stitch pattern in a tuck & roll style in the leather seating areas. Winged wheel logo provides a custom touch coordinated to the BMW logo in silver & blue. If you prefer a more subtle look, specify black stitching.
This Corbin seat model also works with an optional removable rider backrest for added comfort and support. Sculpted to fit the shape of your back and simple to adjust with a single set screw. We offer multiple backrest models to choose from including our new “Ovalbac” series (#02-SB shown). Backrest support hardware is built into the saddle for a very clean look.
All Corbin saddles are built up with our exclusive Comfort Cell® foam. They may feel firm at first, but they break-in to your body and provide lasting support for years… firm is a Good thing! We’ve also neutralized the seating posture to curb sliding in the saddle and have provided ample room for you to move fore and aft depending on your riding posture.
Both saddle and backrest include genuine leather seating areas that conform along with the saddle for perfect break-in. We use leather in the seating and coordinated vinyl side panels to complete the custom look while keeping the saddle looking sharp and the foam shape crisp. We’re bringing riders a high value by providing leather saddles at a fair price. Shown here with natural grain black leather seating, Asphalt side panels and Blue/Silver winged wheel logo.
For a final bit of customization, you can choose from a variety of backing plate options for your Corbin Ovalbac passenger rest. We offer a standard leather-look model or can provide a Carbon-Fiber look model at no extra charge (just be sure to specify). We also offer backing plates paintable or even prepainted gloss black for just a little extra.
Saddle installs using an integrated key lock system. Just install the supplied latch bracket on your bike and the seat will install and remove with a simple twist of a key. Corbin heaters use wiring pigtail that integrates with the OEM harness. The Corbin saddle is designed similar to the standard BMW seat (not the low model) for maximum touring support.
