There were only slight changes to the Multistrada for 2013, but it was a good opportunity to freshen up our tooling and assure a perfect fit! Corbin’s dual saddle provides comfort and style combined for an accessory you’ll be just as happy to look at as you will be to use it. Form and Function blended perfectly is a hallmark of Corbin design.
Ergonomically sculpted seating is designed to distribute body weight over a greater area. This provides longer-range support and eliminates hot spots. Neutralized seating platform helps to hold you body in place and curbs sliding in the saddle. This also helps to relieve rider fatigue by taking pressure off your wrists and knees.
For your passenger we’ve made a much nicer seating area than stock that is built up for increased riding range. This platform has also been neutralized to help curb sliding forward. There was not enough room under the saddle to work in support for the Corbin removable backrest, but we made sure to design the seat to work with the Ducati trunk option. Passenger area is built to look good on the bike and flow with the tail section.
Corbin’s exclusive Comfort Cell foam material provides a firm ride that supports your body indefinitely. Comfort Cell is a closed cell foam type which means it remains resilient and won’t mash down as you spend time in the saddle. Over time, Comfort Cell will break in and adapt to provide a personalized fit to your body.
We’ve built the Corbin seat slightly longer in the front to give you a bit more room. Bucket shape provides excellent body support. Notice how it curves up at the back to provide support to your lower back. Towards the front of the bucket we design the saddle narrower to allow for ground reach. Smaller riders may prefer to slide forward and out of the bucket at stop signs for best ground reach.
Our Fibertech base material and patented manufacturing process allows a perfect fit to the lines of the bodywork and tank. This rigid baseplate provides the saddle with a firm foundation to support the carefully designed ergonomics of the foam. The entire seat rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint job and mounts to your bike with the stock key lock system. Latch bracket comes pre-mounted on the saddle.
On the outside we use genuine leather seating for a luxurious ride that breathes with your body. Leather will break in along with the foam to support the personalized fit. We’ve designed a cover pattern that allows you to keep a custom, yet subtle look or choose from a variety of colored material options at no extra charge for high visual impact. Shown here with Black Carbon-Fiber leather seating and Asphalt sides. Corbin’s custom stitch pattern is included for a nice subtle custom touch.
Corbin’s saddle mounts like stock with tongues in the front and included latch bracket at the rear (actually near the center of the saddle). Rear seat latch is adjustable to assure a perfect fit with your key lock system. When new, you may wish to put a washer between seat and bracket to ease locking on the bike. Remove these washers once the rubber bumpers have broken in a bit.
