Naturally, we set out to design a seat to fit the bike visually as well as improving the quality of your ride. Our high density Comfort Cell foam allows a sleek, low profile while providing a firm supportive ride that lasts. Rider seating is ergonomically shaped to fit the curve of your body and provide better weight distribution and eliminate the "hammock" shape of the stock seat that pinches in all the wrong places. This also helps to eliminate the centralized pressure felt from the stock seat.
We've designed the seating position on the Diavel seat to move the rider back approximately 1.5 inches from the stock seating position. This gives you a bit more seating room and still integrates perfectly with the seat cowling. Seat height is between the stock Ducati seat and their "Tall" seat version which gives us the ability to neutralize the seating platform. In the nose area, we sculpt the saddle to allow for good ground reach.
Passenger seating area is designed with a neutralized platform to curb sliding forward in the saddle. This gives your passenger good mid-range comfort. Sorry folks, but the removable passenger backrest isn't available in this seat model... there's just nowhere to put the hardware for it safely. On the other hand, we did integrate hardware to use your Ducati seat cowling. Just bolt it onto the Corbin seat as you would with the stock seat for a fast, solo look.
Notice how close the Corbin saddle fits to the tank and chassis... 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.
On top, we include genuine leather seating panels for a luxurious ride. Shown here we used Black Carbon-Fiber leather rider seating with Asphalt contrasting passenger seating and Carbonium side panels to coordinate with the carbon-fiber bodywork on the bike. Because the seat is designed to mate up nicely with the Ducati seat cowling, we do NOT recommend using a "welt" on this saddle model.
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 like the stock seat. Functions on key lock system with brackets preinstalled on saddle.
Corbin now uses this special "Italian Flag" logo on all of the saddles we make for Italian motorcycles. If you prefer the standard Corbin stitch, please specify when ordering.

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.

Corbin saddle installs like stock and integrates with the Ducati key lock system. Brackets come premounted on the Corbin seat.

NOTE: Due to the intended close fit of the Corbin saddle to eliminate unsightly gaps, it is sometimes a little difficult to install the seat properly. A little patience is all it takes.
Take good care of your new seat and the seat will take good care of you. Designed to help your leather saddle remain weather resistant and keeps the hide supple.
