Description

If you’re currently sporting the BMW Low seat option or considering converting your RT to that configuration, this is the seat model for you. What BMW has done, is remove some of the brackets and adjustable nature of the front seat and provided the lowest perch possible on the chassis. What WE’VE done is taken the same concept and made it as comfortable as possible by using a higher density foam and sculpting the shape for contoured support.

Our high density Comfort Cell foam allows a sleek profile while providing a firm supportive ride that lasts. Rider seating is designed ergonomically to fit the curve of your body for better weight distribution. This also helps to eliminate the centralized pressure felt from the OEM seat. In the nose we sculpt the saddle narrow to allow for good ground reach. Not only have we managed to improve the quality of your ride, but the contoured shaping of the saddle provides a very clean look on the bike as well.

Both the rider and passenger seating areas have the option of a removable backrest for added support and feeling of security. Saddle can use a single backrest transferred front to back as needed or will work with two backrests full time. Corbin backrests are simple to install requiring just a single bolt and are adjustable to provide a tailored fit to posture. Choose from a variety of backrest styles to suit your taste. The #02-SB models shown here offer a very good combination of clean looks with a generous nine inches of vertical support.

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. The addition of built in backrest support hardware gives your passengers an additional feeling of security while riding too.

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.

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 coordinating vinyl sides and nose for clean, sporty looks. If you’d like something a bit more custom, we also offer a designer model (shown) that features: Black Faux Alligator seating, Natural Black Trim, Carbonium center stripe and Asphalt side panels at no additional cost. A variety of colors and materials are available by special order. All models include moto-sport themed Corbin logo embroidered in side panel.

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.

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. If you opt for electric heat, all components will be built into the saddle and we will include a wiring pigtail for simple installation. Complete directions included.

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. See Accessories tab for additional information and ordering.

About ground reach: You’ve probably already seen the BMW seating arch & leg curve information… they did a great job of describing how a simple seat height measurement doesn’t always give the whole story. For sake of argument, the Corbin low seat is roughly the same as the BMW Low seat, but we did find a little bit of additional ground reach in there. If you refer to the last animation above you will see how the change in seat shape has made reaching the pavement just a smidge easier.

Specification

Unique Technology
The design and manufacture of Corbin products is so unique that Mike Corbin himself holds more than 60 United States Patents! From the process itself to new innovations like the Corbin Glovebox, you can count on highly functional and unique products that work. Corbin products are manufactured under one or more of the following US Patents: 6,848,156 B2; 6,729,516 B2; D 489,540S; 6,655,740 B1; 6,422,648 B1; 5,544,937; 5,608,957; 4,953,911; D545,073S & 6,971,714 B1.


Fibertech™ Basepan
A purpose built, hybrid material that provides a firm foundation to support the carefully designed ergonomics of the Corbin saddle. Provides a precision fit to every arc and contour of the machine and rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint. We always design our basepans as flat as possible so bumps or odd shapes don’t telegraph through the foam to your body.


Comfort Cell® Foam
The heart of the Corbin saddle! Our exclusive, purpose built foam material, called Comfort Cell, was created to provide a firm, resilient ride that doesn’t break down. This means it will support you for long days on the road. Over time, Comfort Cell will break in to provide a personalized fit to your posture and even greater comfort!


Ergonomic Shaping
A major part of the design criteria of the Corbin saddle is the Ergonomic shape. This means the saddle’s foam shape is designed to emulate the curves of the human body. This provides more square inches of body contact and helps to eliminate hot spots. This shaping also neutralizes the seating platform to help curb sliding in the saddle which reduces fatigue.


Patented Manufacturing Technology
Always an innovator, Mike Corbin invented Integrated Molding technology which is now the process by which all Corbin saddles are made. This process allows extremely tight tolerances and creates a chemical bond between the foam and base material. To see what this is all about.


Genuine Leather
We use leather in all panels of the seat that contact your body. This provides a luxurious ride that breathes with your body. Leather will also break in along with the foam shape to support the personalized fit. Available in a wide range of textures and styles to suit your taste.


Corbin Backrest System
The first and most versatile removable backrest system available for motorcycles! Corbin’s backrests provide added vertical back support and long range comfort. Supported by internal hardware for a very clean look. Backrests adjust to rider’s profile for a tailored fit and install or remove easily as desired. A very popular option!


Electric Heat
As an option we can include electric heat in this saddle! This option provides a true bit of luxury for when the temperature starts to drop. Simple to install with major components pre-built into the saddle. Just wire in the included pigtail and you’re ready to roll.

Warning! Heater elements should never be installed in motorcycle seats used by riders that cannot sense heat.

Saddle installs easily with a tab in the front and latch in the rear that integrates with the BMW key lock

If you opt for electric heat, the heaters, controller and switch will come preinstalled in the saddle. You only have to wire the included pigtail to your motorcycle (complete instructions included).

When an RT is converted to use the BMW Low seat, there are brackets removed to allow for a lower seat base. This will also need to be done for the Corbin seat. Likewise, because of this our standard seats won’t fit the Lowered model unless you get the proper brackets from your BMW dealer.


Corbin saddles (with very few exceptions) include Genuine Leather Seating to provide a luxurious look and feel….   don’t let anybody tell you that vinyl is just as good! You wouldn’t buy vinyl boots would you?


Warning: Heater elements (when available) should never be installed in motorcycle seats that will be used by riders that cannot sense heat. This could create a hazardous condition.
