Insist on a geniune Corbin saddle to improve the comfort, feel and looks of your Indian. Our Dual Touring saddle is just what you need to maximize the long range capabilities of your Scout with enhanced comfort for two. Our ergonomically shaped seating gives you excellent support for the long haul. The only reason you’ll find for stopping is the need for fuel.
Designed to work with a Corbin backrest in the rider and/or passenger seating positions or with the Indian sissy bar. Corbin backrests are supported by internal hardware for a very clean look and simple, one-bolt installation. You can order a single backrest and transfer it front to back as needed or get two for full time use. Backrest angle adjusts to provide a personalized fit to rider posture in both positions. With backrest installed, the rider bucket offers 15 inches of vertical support!
In the images above, we show Ovalbac backrest model #02-SB that offers excellent contoured support with a clean modern look. This design also provides a convenient hand hold for your passenger or while moving your bike around the garage. You can review all of the backrest models Corbin offers by clicking on the “Accessories” tab.
Notice how both seating platforms are sculpted to fit the shape of the human body and seat the rider into the bike. This is what we call “ergonomic” design and it is one of the critical features of the Corbin saddle. Wide, dished platforms create more square inches of body contact and longer lasting support without hot spots. Seating position provides good ground reach and makes you feel more integrated with the bike. Corbin seating is slightly further back and higher to provide good, relaxed ergos. Inside, our exclusive Comfort Cell foam provides a firm, resilient ride that lasts. Over time, Comfort Cell will adapt to your body and provide a personalized fit for even greater comfort.
As with most Corbin saddles, this model uses genuine leather seating panels for a ride that breathes with your body. Luxurious and durable, leather will provide comfort for many years and will break in along with the foam shape for a personalized fit to your posture. Available decorated to your taste with a host of options in materials, colors and textures. Shown here we used our Indian Tan leather which coordinates with the factory material but it not a perfect match.
For those chilly morning rides we offer an option of heated rider seating. We incorporate a heater unit under the leather seating and a switch on the left side of the saddle (so you can turn it on without removing your hand from the throttle). Just flip the switch and the seats will warm up and maintain temperature automatically. Corbin’s heater comes completely pre installed in the saddle and you need only integrate the included pigtail to your battery.
Notice how the saddle is designed to fit perfectly to the tank, chassis and fender… Corbin’s Wizards have mastered where the leather meets the metal. This kind of fit is available only in genuine Corbin saddles through our patented Integrated Molding system. This process allows us to engineer extremely tight tolerances and fit complex shapes like the beautiful, flowing fender.
Need more options? Our #02-S model backrests have removable finishing plates on the rear available in a range of styles. The standard plate is a black ABS leather look, but we can also provide one with a carbon-fiber look or primer and ready for your custom painter. For just a little extra, we can provide the finishing plate on your backrest prepainted gloss black or chromed steel. These make a perfect finishing touch.
Installation is similar to OEM and uses a tongue in the front and a single bolt into your fender at the rear. For tool free installation, use one of our thumbscrews in this location. Your Scout uses an #ACST-8M in this spot. If you opt for electric heat, the saddle will include a pigtail wire that integrates directly with your Indian’s battery (complete instructions included).
We have found the Scout to be a bit long for most riders despite it’s reasonable size. We have positioned the rider bucket in the sweet spot on the bike and could really tell that it’s a stretch to the bars. On Mike’s Scout we installed a set of adjustable pull-backs from Helibar (#HZ15100SS). These bars are taller than stock and have a rear adjustable offset while still using all of the stock cables and hydraulics. We found these to be the final piece of the ergonomic puzzle on the Scout!

If you’re looking to add a bit of convenient storage, the rear finishing plate can be replaced wtih the Corbin exclusive Glovebox. This adds four liters of locking storage that is perfect for maps, cell phones, bottled water and other small travel essentials. Comes fully lined and weather stripped to protect cargo. Available in plain black ABS or prepainted gloss black for a little extra. See Accessories tab for additional information and ordering.
