You've never seen anything like this before for your Duc! Our Smuggler design offers a very comfortable seat up front combined with a locking trunk for convenient access to under seat storage. Corbin's Smuggler is designed to emulate the shape of the tank and carry the lines of the tail section through the back end. We even coordinate the paint to your stock Ducati paint job! Inside there's plenty of room for your essential traveling gear.
Corbin's Smuggler is constructed of durable Fibertech for years of quality service and durability. We include everything all bolted together so it's ready for installation right out of the box. Just transfer the latch pin from your stock seat and you'll be ready to roll. Smuggler door is fully weather stripped and features a locking latch to secure your goodies. Side walls of the Smuggler tail are lined for a smooth finish and we even have a storage pouch on the door for small items like cash or keys.
Up front the saddle is designed to provide ergonomically correct support. Our sculpted seating creates a wider area of body contact to equalize pressure and eliminate hot spots. Neutralized to curb sliding in the saddle, this design also helps to minimize rider fatigue.
Luxuriously upholstered with genuine leather in your choice of styles and colors. Coordinating vinyl side panels finish the look and support the foam shape to keep the saddle looking sharp. For an extra, custom touch we offer a new Italian flag emblem Corbin tag that can be used on your saddle.
Corbin now uses this special "Italian Flag" logo tag on all of the saddles we make for Italian motorcycles.
If you prefer the standard Corbin tag, please specify when ordering.
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. Click on the button at left to learn more...
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.

Rider Seating: 13.5" W x 14.5" L Approx. seat height: 32.5" Trunk Capacity: Aprox. 6 Liters
Corbin's Smuggler tail and saddle are assembled in a single piece so the entire assembly mounts like stock for simple installation. You will need to transfer the locking bracket from your stock unit onto the Corbin setup... this is very easy!
Corbin's basepan does not include the recessed area built in for the Ducati lock. A flatter basepan gave us more flexibility to design a properly shaped seating position and better ergonomically designed support.
Please be forewarned that the paint on your Smuggler may not be a perfect match for the color on your motorcycle. Over the years we've determined there are differences in color from bike to bike especially once the paint has started to fade (reds and silvers are notorious for this and change shade quickly). Due to this, we have established paint colors that are close for the widest range of Ducati's we could test with. If you are concerned about a perfect match, order your Smuggler in primer and have a local shop match the paint.
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.
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. This will allow the leather to break in and age gracefully. Great for boots, gloves & jackets too. Simple rub-in, buff out application. *More Info*
