Two-wheeled Good Times through and through... made even better with the addition of Corbin's Dual Saddle. Provides generous contoured seating with a sporty appearance and custom tailoring coordinated to your bike. Front seating is carefully designed to conform to the shape of your body and built up with Comfort Cell foam that gives long term support. Passenger area is gently sculpted to look sporty while providing reasonable two up comfort.
Notice also how well the seat fits to the lines of the bike for a totally integrated look... This kind of fit comes only from Corbin and our exclusive Fibertech base plate material. Our basepan provides a firm foundation to support the foam shape and rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint job.
High density Comfort Cell foam gives a supportive ride that stays resilient indefinitely. Contoured shaping helps to relieve hot spots and centralized pressure that causes discomfort. Additionally, Comfort Cell foam material will break in over time to provide a more personalized fit to your posterior. Neutralized shaping removes the high area from the nose of the seat which adds a great deal of comfort value and improves ground reach while reducing the tendency to slide around in the seat.
On top, your new saddle includes a customized cover design that coordinates with the paint scheme. Our standard setup uses natural grain black seating with coordinating center trim, asphalt side panels, Carbonium tail and embroidered Corbin scooter emblem on the side. Shown here we've coordinated to the Blue X9 with our new Blue Faux-Alligator in the trim panel. Naturally you can choose from a variety of material options to coordinate with your bike or go with a black insert for a more subtle look. Color and material options are available at no extra charge.
Naturally we kept the hinging action of the seat to give easy access to the storage area and the Corbin seat actually opens four inches further than the stock unit. Corbin's Dual Saddle integrates with the factory lock system and includes a hinged seat prop to keep the storage area accessible when needed. Please note that due to the higher density foam material and rigid base material of the Corbin saddle, the stock gas prop is not strong enough to keep the saddle aloft.
Saddle installation is simple as the seat integrates with your chassis using an included hinge. Corbin seat comes with weather stripping preinstalled to keep your storage compartment sealed.

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
Rider seating: 14" wide x 22" long Passenger: 11" wide x 13" long
Saddle installs using hinge preinstalled on the seat to integrate with Piaggio chassis and includes latch bracket on the rear.
Due to the denser foam and rigid base material of the Corbin saddle, the stock gas prop rod does not have enough strength to hold up the Corbin seat. Instead we include a fold away prop rod that holds up the saddle and offers another four inches of opening 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*
