An awesome new saddle combo for the Gixxer 1000. Corbin's saddle designs provide the luxury riders demand for total enjoyment of their machine and the ability for sport touring. You wouldn't expect to have long range comfort and support on a radical sport bike like this, but that is exactly what Corbin provides for your bike. Engineered to provide the perfect blend of rider comfort and the usual Corbin sleek styling with a range of options included for custom looks.
The sculpted riding positions disperse body weight across a greater area so you enjoy mile after mile of comfort. Neutralized seating position helps reduce the tendency to slide forward in the saddle and minimize rider fatigue. Both the from and rear saddles are built up of Corbin's exclusive Comfort Cell® foam to provide a low profile design combined with firm support. Our pilot saddle is designed to install easily and work with either a rear seat or your Suzuki seat cowling. Notice how the dished shaping is similar to that of the human body for correct support. The nose area is wider for riding support yet sculpted to allow ground reach.
In the rear, we've designed a passenger platform that gives your copilot better weight dispersion just like the front seat. Dished to support the human shape and disperse weight over a greater area to eliminate hot spots. Neutralized platform helps your passenger stay put and not slide forward into you. This helps to aleviate fatigue for them giving them greater enjoyment of the ride. Sorry, but due to the design of the tail section and sub-frame on this model we were not able to provide the option of a removable passenger backrest.
Corbin's patented molding and manufacturing process provides a precision fit to the tank and side panels and rides on rubber bumpers to protect the bike's paint. Leather seating panels are included along with a wide range of decorating options. We recommend our new Carbon Fiber embossed leather to add racebike styling, it's very exciting to look at and provides an extremely comfortable ride with great durability. Leather seating breathes with your body and will break in along with the foam shape to provide a personalized fit. To complete the look we have a coordinated vinyl material for the side panels. We use vinyl in the side panels to support the foam shape and keep your saddle looking sharp. Corbin's front saddle works with the Suzuki rear seat or seat cowling too.
Installation of the front saddle is simple and includes all necessary brackets pre-mounted on the seat. Rear saddle installs using a bracket transferred from your stock rear seat or cowling. This bracket enables the Corbin rear seat to latch perfectly with your existing key lock system.

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.
