BMW says Pure passion, pure design, pure riding pleasure... But we figured we could add a little style and some long range comfort to the equation as well.
We started with our high density Comfort Cell foam for a sleek profile while providing a firm, supportive ride. Then we shaped the saddle for a classic, solo look and sculpted the rider seating ergonomically for proper 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 ground reach.
* Read *For a solo look, the Gunfighter tail section is shaped to emulate the lines of the tank with a fastback tail section. On the inside, the tail is padded and upholstered to provide for short trip passenger capability. Although the shaping of the tail is designed primarily for looks, the Comfort Cell foam still provides a good perch for your copilot on short to medium trips.
Notice how close the Corbin saddle fits to the tank, chassis and fender... 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. Over time, our exclusive foam material will break in for a personalized fit to your body.
On top, we include your choice of genuine leather seating panels in a wide range of colors and textures. Choose from a range of color options by special order at no additional charge! Shown above:
· Black Natural Grain leather seating with Stealth stitch pattern, Asphalt Side panels and Asphalt Tail Section. Welts not recommended. · Black Natural Grain leather seating with Stealth stitch pattern, Silver Carbon-Fiber Side panels, Black Carbon-Fiber Tail Section with white accent stitch. Welts not recommended. 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.
Our seat rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint job and mounts to your bike similar to stock. Corbin's one-piece seat uses two mounting tabs at the front that integrate with your BMW chassis and a single bolt at the rear from under the fender.
