Corbin's patented Rumble Seat is now available for Honda's original Heavyweight cruiser. Corbin's patented Rumble Seat design offers you the best of both worlds... Slick solo looks and also passenger capability when desired. Convenient and easy to use, this seat design features an all new hinge mechanism that secures the passenger fold down backrest in either position effortlessly. Just fold it up or down and you're ready to roll.
On the back of the Rumble Seat, we finish it of with gloss black ABS panels that you can easily remove and take to your favorite painter like we did with the ones on this model. For solo cruising, the passenger rest provides a slick look similar to our original Gunfighter saddle design. When you wish to carry passengers, just fold up the rear pad to reveal a generous passenger seating area complete with backrest that offers your copilot 11 inches of vertical support.
Naturally, the Rumble Seat is designed for excellent rider comfort and is built up of our Comfort Cell® foam for firm support. The front seating area is ergonomically contoured to provide a larger area of body contact and excellent weight distribution. The fold down passenger rest adds extra seat height to give you additional back support and longer riding range. Rider seating position on this model features nine inches of vertical support. Passenger seating is generous and perfect for short to mid-range rides with the backrest in the flipped up position.
We also offer an option of heated rider seating for your Rumble seat. We incorporate a heater unit under the leather seating and a switch on the left side of the saddle (so you can turn it on without removing your hand from the throttle). Just flip the switch to the low or high position and the seat will warm up and maintain temperature automatically through an integrated controller. A true bit of luxury for those chilly morning rides! Corbin's heater wires easily into your stock fusebox with all wiring and adapters included.
Corbin's Rumble Seat design is ergonomically developed to provide a more correct fit to your body. This gives you more square inches of body contact and long lasting support. On the inside, our exclusive Comfort Cell® foam provides firm support that doesn't fade as you rack up the miles. Comfort Cell® feels firm when you first ride on it, but this firmness is what keeps your body supported. Over time, you saddle will break in to take on your shape for a personalized fit.
Rumble Seat features genuine leather seating for a perch that breathes with your body and breaks in with the foam shape. Leather makes an excellent cover for a motorcycle seat because it is extremely durable and luxurious to ride on. Choose from a variety of leather styles and colors to customize the look of the saddle. In the side panels and tail, we use a coordinating vinyl material to keep your foam shape tight and the saddle looking sharp longer. Heated models come standard with our sharp deco stitch (shown), non-heated models are available with or without the stitch pattern (please specify).
Designed to install using the stock key lock system on your Valkyrie. We slightly redesigned the mounting and include a bracket that installs on your fender into stock locations. The front of the saddle will now latch using your key lock. Over time, the leather cover will break in just like your boots and jacket to take on it's own unique character. Be sure to care for you saddle with a quality conditioner like our Saddle Cream. This will help your genuine leather seat to resist the elements, remain supple and age gracefully.
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.
PATENTED RUMBLE SEAT: The most convenient saddle available! Converts instantly from Solo to Dual with no tools required, just a simple flip of the wrist. Another original Corbin idea, this seat design is so unique it carries two United States Patents: #4,953,911 & #6,971,714. Click the button for additional info
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. Simple to install with major components pre-built into the saddle. Just wire in the included pigtail and you're ready to roll. Click the button at left for complete info...
Warning! Heater elements should never be installed in motorcycle seats used by riders that cannot sense heat.
Rider Seating: 13.5" wide x 17" long x 9" deep Passenger: 8" wide x 9" long x 11" deep
Installation: We use a slightly different mounting system with our saddle. We include a bracket that mounts to your fender as shown here. Use the stock bolts to mount this bracket and tighten to 8 ft lbs. Once the bracket is in place, simply slide the saddle into position engaging the seat tongue into this bracket and lower the nose into position on your bike. Push down on the front of the saddle to engage the stock key lock.
The Rumble Seat will not work with an Valkyrie Interstate as the larger fuel tank doesn't fit properly to the nose of the seat.
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*
