Corbin's saddle design greatly enhances the comfort of the ZX by ergonomically dispersing your weight over a greater area. Built up of Corbin's Comfort Cell® foam to provide miles and miles of supportive comfort for the sport touring enthusiast. Our exclusive foam material feels firm at first, but doesn't break down like the stock foam keeping your body supported indefinitely for day long riding enjoyment.
After an initial break-in period, Comfort Cell® foam will adapt to your body to provide an even greater degree of comfort and weight distribution. Additionally, the rider's seating position has been neutralized to reduce the tendency to slide towards the tank under braking. Notice also how the seat is shaped to provide support for your legs while your feet are on the footpegs, but is shaved in the nose area to allow good ground reach.
This bike also accepts a passenger saddle giving you coordinated copilot accommodations. We've built the rear seat up with our Comfort Cell foam to provide good resilience and designed a fast looking perch that integrates with the Kawasaki bodywork. This gives reasonable passenger comfort with outstanding looks. Sorry, but due to space limitations, we were unable to engineer a removable backrest into this model.
All components are engineered to fit perfect to the tank, chassis and tail section, our front solo saddle will also work with the stock rear seat if you prefer. Manufactured with a fibertech basepan for unsurpassed fit, Corbin's ZX seats ride on rubber bumpers to protect the motorcycle's paint job. To make installation easier our seats come ready to install with brackets pre-mounted on the saddle.
All Corbin saddles come standard with genuine leather seating inserts for a true touch of luxury. We've come up with a slick cover design that allows for custom or subtle looks depending on your preference. Above we show the front saddle decked out with Carbonium trim panel, Asphalt sides and with varying seating panels including: Charcoal Carbon-Fiber leather, SHINY Black Faux-Alligator leather & Green Faux-Alligator leather (to coordinate with the custom LED lighting on this particular bike). Rear seat is made to match with Carbonium sides and coordinated leather bump panel.
Leather seating will provide a surface that breathes with your body and will adapt with the foam during break in for a perfectly personalized fit. Just be sure to care for it properly with a quality leather conditioner like our Saddle Cream to help it age gracefully and remain weather resistant.

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.
