At one point we accidentally referred to this bike as the M109's Little Brother... sorry about that.
Sure, it's compressing 300cc's less fuel & air, but a term like that sounds too dismissive for a motorcycle as grand as this one. The unfortunate side of this comparison is that most people didn't really like the stock seat on the M109 either. For all of its technical prowess, the good folks at Suzuki left a bit to be desired when it comes to the rump rest. Fortunately, we knew just what to do about that!
We started by designing a two piece saddle that will interchange with the OEM front seat, rear seat and cowling. We developed concave seating surfaces that conform to the shape of your body and eliminate pressure points. This also spreads body weight over a greater area giving more square inches of body contact and support. Additionally, both positions are neutralized to curb sliding which reduces rider fatigue.
As you can tell, this ergonomically designed shape provides a very nice visual effect that flows with the bike's sleek lines. Our Fibertech base material allows us to provide a perfect fit to every arc and contour of the Boulevard bodywork while being rigid enough to support the carefully designed foam shape. Fibertech also provides the structural integrity needed for our internal backrest support system.
Corbin backrests (optional) are designed to install easily and lock in place with a single bolt. Built in angle adjustment allows our backrests to be tailored to your riding posture quickly and easily. Use a single backrest to transfer front to rear as needed, or order two backrests for full time use. Choose from a variety of backrest styles to suit your taste (we recommend Ovalback #02-SB as shown above).
Naturally, our backrests are tailored to match your new Corbin saddle and provide an integrated look. Models like the #02-SB (shown) provide contoured support and maximum amount of body support. These models also offer finishing plate options to further customize the look of your M90. Backrests come standard with a leather look ABS finishing plate that can be ordered custom in a variety of styles... even chrome.
For an added bit of luxury, we've designed the front and rear saddles with the option of electric heat! Simple to install with all components built into the saddles. You just have to install a simple wiring pigtail on your bike and enjoy the warmth. A great feature to have when you're taking off early in the morning to beat the traffic! Convenient switch is located on the left side of the saddle. Once on, the saddles warm up and maintain temperature automatically. Both front and rear seats are available heated (or non-heated) and have separate switches to control them.
Constructed with our exclusive high-density Comfort Cell foam that allows us to build a supportive saddle without a bulky shape. Corbin's Wizards are masters at combining form and function into a saddle that makes you as happy to look at as it does to ride on. On top, we include genuine leather seating in a variety of distinct styles. Shown here in the following material combination: Black Faux Ostrich seating, Plain Black trim, Asphalt sides, No welt. Stitching in trim panel comes standard.
Simple installation with all required brackets included. Rear saddle mounts just like stock reusing the two stock bolts into your chassis. Front saddle mounts using the Suzuki key lock system with brackets preinstalled on the saddle. All Corbin components will interchange and work with stock seats & seat cowl.
Want some locking storage? Corbin's glovebox is an excellent solution for all your quick-access stuff. Simply replace the finishing plate on the Ovalbac model backrest and you've just added four liters of locking storage capacity. It's plenty for a couple bottles of water, cell phone, spare gloves, maps and other incidentals. Constructed of durable ABS plastic and available plain black or prepainted (at additional cost). Check out the optional Glovebox via the Accessories tab.

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!

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.

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.
