It's not easy to design an accessory to blend so flawlessly with a jewel like the XR 1200, but the Corbin R&D team was up to the challenge. Flawless fit that integrates perfectly with the tail section and a clean, low profile. Sculpted seat shape cradles your body to eliminate hot spots and is built up with our high density foam for long range support. Perfected form and function!
Our neutralized seating posture helps reduce the tendency to slide forward in the saddle while on the brakes. This will greatly enhance your riding range by reducing strain on your wrists and knees. Corbin saddles are designed to help hold you in the sweet-spot on the bike but still allows for a range of movement for more spirited riding styles. Ergonomic dish shaping provides more square inches of body contact and better weight dispersion.
We've greatly enhanced comfort by building the saddle up with our high density Comfort Cell foam, but kept the track styling and fit to tail section. Not only is the shaping already designed to fit the contour of the human body, but our exclusive foam material will adapt to take on your shape upon break in. Our exclusive high density material allows us to build a seating platform that provides good support even with a low profile appearance.
Corbin's patented manufacturing process allows us to create a shape that fits perfectly to the bike and contours every curve of the tank and tail section. Our Fibertech basepan provides a rigid foundation that supports the foam shape to assure the carefully crafted ergonomics remain intact. Underneath, the baseplate rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint job from scratching.
Leather seating panels are included for a luxurious ride. Shown with Carbon-Fiber leather seating inserts and Asphalt vinyl sides for contrast. This combination looks great on all color combinations of the XR 1200. We also offer a variety of color options at no extra charge (special order) like the Silver Carbon-Fiber model also shown on this page. Our leather seating provides a unique look, excellent comfort and will also break in along with your foam shape to give you a personalized fit over time. Coordinating vinyl sides keep the foam shape tight and the saddle looking sharp longer. Be sure to care for your leather saddle properly with a quality conditioner like our Saddle Cream. Your leather will age gracefully and develop its own unique character with proper care.
The classic embroidered Corbin logo on the side has been embellished with a touch of orange in tribute to the HD racing color scheme. This logo shown here actually makes a very nice, subtle touch.
Saddle mounts using a unique Corbin key lock system. We provide all of the brackets required for a quick and simple installation. To really set off the racebike look of your XR, we have a rear cowling in the works that will fit perfectly to the HD tail section and complete the solo look. Watch these pages for it in the next couple weeks.
