What can you say about a production bike that requires an NHRA license if you want to run it at the local drag strip? (Yes, it's that fast.) Now just because the bike CAN get there faster, doesn't always mean that it will. You've still got to deal with those pesky speed limits and the four wheeled chicanes (traffic) so you should probably take care of the ergos. Naturally we're just the guys to help...
Our Canyon Dual Sport saddle provides excellent sport touring comfort while providing a look that matches perfectly to the lines of the ZX. Corbin's ergonomic design maximizes the body contact area to create more square inches of support in both the rider and passenger areas. For your passenger's added comfort, the Canyon Dual Sport accepts a removable backrest. Inside, the saddle is constructed with our exclusive Comfort Cell® foam to provide firm support that lasts.
Corbin's removable passenger backrest is easily adjustable to tailor its fit to your co-pilot's posture. A simple set screw on the rear of the backrest sets the angle without removing the backrest from the seat. Installation of the backrest is also very simple and requires a single screw under the saddle. Backrest support hardware is built inside the seat to keep a very clean look on your bike without external brackets.
Canyon Dual Sport works perfectly with your stock Kawasaki seat cowling or in the two up configuration with the passenger grab rail. Seat cowl mounts directly to the Corbin saddle just like it does on your stock seat.
Notice how close the Corbin saddle fits to the tank, tail section and sides... this kind of fit comes only from a Corbin saddle and our unique Fibertech basepan. Our rigid base material not only fits perfect to the bike, but provides a firm foundation to support the carefully designed foam shape. Corbin's ergonomic shaping creates a visually pleasing look on the motorcycle and adds to the custom appeal. This shape also creates a generous seating bucket for comfort and is sculpted narrow in the nose for positive ground reach.
On top, we include your choice of genuine leather seating panels in a wide range of colors and textures. The images above show our Black Carbon-Fiber leather seating with accenting Asphalt vinyl sides for clean, sporty looks. Choose from a range of color options at no additional charge! Naturally, your Corbin backrest can be made to match.
We use genuine leather seating in all of our saddle models because it breathes with your body and will conform along with the foam shape during break in. This provides an added bit of luxury on those long rides. In the side panels, we use a coordinating vinyl material that will support the foam shape and keep the saddle looking sharp longer. Be sure to care for you leather saddle properly with a quality conditioner like our Saddle Cream. This will help the leather to remain supple and weather resistant while it matures gracefully.
A final bit of customizing options is the removable finishing plate on the rear of our Ovalbac model backrests. The standard plate comes in an ABS leather look, but we can also supply one with a Carbon-Fiber look or primer if you'd like to have it custom painted. For just a little extra, we can even supply a model that is prepainted to your Kawi's stock color or even Chrome!
If you're looking to add a bit of storage to your bike quickly and easily, we offer a glovebox option that bolts to the Corbin backrest in place of the finishing plate. Providing four liters of convenient locking storage, it's plenty of room for maps, cell phones, bottled water, tire repair kit and other essentials. Constructed of durable ABS and available plain (black) or prepainted. Comes to you fully lined with lock preinstalled.

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.
