Versatility, clean looks and excellent functionality! The Corbin Smuggler for the VFR is a combination front saddle & trunk that mounts together and installs on your bike as a single piece. Since it negates the ability to bring a passenger, we've designed the Smuggler trunk to fit without the Honda hand rails which provides a very clean and integrated look with more storage room!
Up front our ergonomically engineered saddle provides a wide, sculpted platform that gives more square inches of body contact for maximum support. Inside the saddle our exclusive Comfort Cell foam provides a firm foundation that supports your body and won't break down like the stock foam. Nose area is shaped to provide good ground reach at stop signs.
On the inside, our Smuggler trunk is lined to protect your cargo and offers enough room for a range of frequently needed items. You know, things like spare gloves, water bottles, cell phones, house keys, digital camera, ball cap, etc. All told, the total volume is 6.8 liters of convenient locking storage... and that's a lot!
For the best looks, Smuggler comes prepainted to coordinate with your factory paint and provides a secure area for your traveling essentials. Naturally we've built the Smuggler to fit perfectly to the lines of the VFR to create an integrated, factory look. Slick details pick up the lines of the bike and lend a bit more flair. Available painted a single color as shown here or with a black lid to emulate the black panel on the tank.
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 so the looks are spectacular right out of the box. Includes weather stripping and door lock to keep contents secure and dry.
For an added touch of luxury, this saddle is available with the option of electric seat heater. This feature is just the ticket on those chilly morning rides to help shrug off the cold and enjoy the sunrise. The Corbin heating system is built completely into the saddle for simple operation. A switch on the left side of the seat turns it on while the seat maintains temperature automatically. We include a wiring pigtail that integrates with your fusebox for simple installation.
Saddle includes genuine leather seating and comes standard with Carbon-Fiber leather seating, Asphalt vinyl sides for contrast and special Corbin "V" logo enbroidered in the side. A variety of leather colors and patterns are available by special order at no extra charge if desired.
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. For more information about leather seating just click away.
Smuggler & Front seat mount together and install on your VFR as a single unit. Mounts just like stock using the OEM key system with brackets preinstalled on the Corbin saddle system.
Please note the storage area of the Corbin Smuggler is irregular in shape. Keep this in mind when figuring out what items may fit in the trunk. Likewise the door hinge displaces some storage room.
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*
