Smuggler... an integral part of Corbin's modular seating system. We've created a two piece saddle system that allows you to switch from solo to dual easily using the stock BMW key lock. For a clean solo look and the most convenient storage available, our Smuggler trunk is just perfect. Locking onto your bike in place of a passenger seat, Corbin's Smuggler trunk comes prepainted to coordinate with your stock paint (please specify color) and provides a secure area to stow essentials. Up front, the enhanced ergonomics of our front saddle create a perch that provides long range, sport touring comfort.
Naturally we've built the Smuggler to fit perfectly to the lines of the K-S to create an integrated look. Slick details like the ribs at the back pick up the details of the bike and lend a bit more flair. Our patented molding process and exclusive materials create a part with very minimal variation from piece to piece so we can design a precision fit to the bodywork. The Corbin front saddle mounts using included brackets. The Smuggler trunk and/or rear seat mount using the stock BMW key lock with brackets included and preinstalled.
Smuggler's capacity of 7.5 liters helps to keep all your essential gear handy. That's more than enough room for keys, maps, spare gloves, cell phone, PDA, bottled water.... there's even enough room for your digital camera in there (even an SLR!) You'll find the Smuggler so convenient that you'll be getting stuff out of it every time you stop your bike. Naturally it comes fully finished and prepainted to coordinate with your stock paint color so the looks are spectacular right out of the box.
Front saddle uses our exclusive high-density Comfort Cell foam that allows us to build a supportive saddle without a bulky shape. Corbin's Wizards are masters at combining form and function into a saddle that makes you as happy to look at as it does to ride on. For those chilly morning rides, the Corbin front seat has the option of electric heat. Seat wires easily into your fusebox and maintains the proper temperature automatically through an integrated controller. Simply flip the conveniently located switch to low or high and enjoy the warmth.
Notice how the bucket is designed to emulate the shape of your body. This gives excellent support for longer range. Neutralized seating helps to curb sliding in the saddle which greatly reduces rider fatigue. We include your choice of color options for looks from outrageous to stealthy. We've created a cover design and stitch pattern that coordinates with the K1200 perfectly and adds to the visual appeal. Shown here we've used all black carbon-fiber leather seating with Asphalt vinyl sides and our unique stitch pattern.
Pictures just don't do it justice. When you see in person how well the trunk is integrated to the BMW bodywork, you'll be amazed. Notice how closely the Corbin designers were able to make the Smuggler fit to the complex shaping of the K-S tail section. The graceful, aerodynamic looks have been kept true for the best possible visual appeal. Smuggler is constructed of our durable Fibertech material for a fine finish and long term durability.
Smuggler comes fully lined to help protect your cargo and cushion some of the road noise. Naturally, the door opening is fully weather stripped to guard against foul weather as well. Locking door keeps things secure and simple to access. Our new stainless steel hinge mechanism allows the door to open very wide to keep it out of the way when stowing your gear.

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! For the complete story just click the button.
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. In a nutshell... more comfort for a longer ride! Just click the button at left for an animation that shows how it works.
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, just click the button for More Info
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. For more information about leather seating just click away.
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.
