Corbin's modular system is all about convenience... well, it's all about convenience AND comfort. Our modular seat system is a two piece saddle design that provides comfort for you and a passenger. When traveling alone, you can remove the passenger seat and replace it with our Smuggler trunk for convenient, locking storage.
Our saddles greatly enhance comfort by ergonomically dispersing your weight over a greater area. Built up of Corbin's Comfort CellŪ Space foam to provide miles of supportive comfort for longer riding range. Our exclusive foam material feels firm at first, but doesn't break down like the stock foam keeping your body supported indefinitely.
After an initial break-in period, the Corbin seat 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.
In the rear, our passenger seat is engineered to accept an optional removable passenger backrest for added comfort and support. Choose from a range of styles to suit your taste and the amount of support desired. Backrests are fully adjustable to provide a tailored fit to copilots posture and install or remove easily when desired. Please note, our backrest will not work with the Suzuki trunk installed on your bike.
Smuggler Trunk is another original Corbin idea! Simply remove the rear seat and replace it with the Smuggler trunk to instantly add convenient, locking storage. For best looks, Smuggler comes prepainted to coordinate with your factory paint. We've built the Smuggler to fit perfectly to the lines of the bike to create an integrated, factory look. Slick details pick up the details and lend a bit more flair. Installation and removal is simple using the Suzuki lock system.
Smuggler's capacity is enough for all the items you want to keep handy. There's more than enough room for keys, maps, spare gloves, cell phone, PDA, bottled water.... There's even enough room for your digital camera in there. You'll find the Smuggler so convenient that you'll be getting stuff out of it every time you stop your bike. The Smuggler Trunk comes fully finished and prepainted to coordinate with your stock paint color so the looks are spectacular right out of the box. Inside the trunk is lined to protect your cargo.
All components are engineered to fit perfect to the tank, chassis and tail section. Manufactured with a fibertech basepan for unsurpassed fit, Corbin's seat rides on rubber bumpers to protect the motorcycle's paint job. We include all brackets required for installation. Once the bracket is in place, the rear seat & Smuggler can easily be swapped out using the OEM key lock.
All Corbin saddles come standard with genuine leather seating inserts for a true touch of luxury. For the V-Strom, we recommend our Carbon Fiber laminated leather seating with Asphalt vinyl sides for a nice accent. Leather will provide a seating 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.

UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY: The design and manufacture of Corbin products is so unique that Mike Corbin himself holds more than 60 United States Patents! From the process itself to new innovations like the Corbin Glovebox, you can count on highly functional and unique products that work. Corbin products are manufactured under one or more of the following US Patents: 6,848,156 B2; 6,729,516 B2; D 489,540S; 6,655,740 B1; 6,422,648 B1; 5,544,937; 5,608,957; 4,953,911; D545,073S & 6,971,714 B1.
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
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.

Our most popular backrest model is the perfect blend of form and function. The size looks visually appropriate on most every seat yet is large enough to provide good, sculpted support. Works well in either the rider's or passenger's position. The standard Ovalbac is available with a range of finishing plate options to dress up the rear including chrome! *More Info*
The standard Corbin backrest for years! This model is the same size and shape as the Standard Ovalbac above, but without the hole in the middle. Provides plenty of sculpted back support without looking too big on the bike. Works in both the rider or passenger seating area on virtually all Corbin saddle models. This model also has the option of chrome studs if desired. *More Info*
Like the Standard Ovalbac show above, but with a larger contact area for added support. Works great as a passenger backrest in Dual Touring models. Because of the added width, we do not recommend this model in the front position while carrying a passenger... it may interfere with their legs. Sculpted to provide wide ergonomic support. Offers a variety of finishing plate options to customize the rear (sorry, no chrome). *More Info*
This model is specially designed to be used in the large Dual Touring seats (like HD Baggers) or in Master's Type saddles as found on the Goldwings. Sculpted for extended support both vertically and horizontally, but cut away at the bottom to provide clearance for passenger's legs. A variety of finishing plate options are available to customize the rear. *More Info*
If you want the functionality of a backrest, but also want the smallest appearance possible, this is the backrest model for you. This one is most often used as a rider's backrest in Gunfighter seat models (thus the name). Includes a variety of finishing plate options for the rear. *More Info*
All the functionality of an adjustable backrest, combined with the smallest profile possible. This model is often used as a rider's backrest in Gunfighter seat models just like the #02-G shown above. Includes genuine leather seating and color coordinating options just like our saddles *More Info*
A convenient storage solution that looks great too. Corbin's Glove Box bolts up easily to your #02-S(B) model backrest in place of the rear finishing plate to provide four liters of locking storage. Available in primer or pre-painted. Some color matches are available depending on bike make and model. Comes fully lined too! *More Info*
