Maximized seating comfort for the original Muscle Bike! We just recently retooled this design for an updated fit and easier fueling with the nozzles you find at the gas pump nowadays. Our V-Max saddle design gives you large sculpted seating areas to provide the greatest square inches of body support possible. This eliminates hot-spots and increases your comfortable riding range. Lower seat height gives you an easier reach to the ground without sacrificing comfort value.
Inside, the saddle is built up with our exclusive Comfort Cell® foam for firm support that lasts. This foam material is specially designed for Corbin to provide a platform nearly twice as firm as the stock foam. A firm platform will retain resilience longer and stop you from "falling through the seat". This combined with the ergonomic shaping will give you all day riding comfort.
For your passenger, the Corbin saddle accepts a removable backrest in a wide range of styles. Our new Ovalbac series (model #02-S shown) provides a shape that is contoured to fit your passengers back for better support and zero spine pressure. Naturally it is fully adjustable for a tailored fit. Corbin backrests are simple to install and lock into the saddle with a single set screw.
Over the last few years, many states have adopted the use of rubber boots on fuel filler nozzles at gas stations. Good luck finding a gas stop in California without these! Due to this, we've changed our original V-Max saddle design to provide easier access to the filler cap. The center section of the rider's area now pulls out providing a much larger access area. This section is held in with hook & loop fastener and is secured to the seat so you don't accidentally ride off without it. Full information can be found below in the special notes section.
We've found the best material to use for a motorcycle seat is leather. It offers the best comfort and is also extremely durable so we now provide it in the seating panels of all saddles. The model shown here is using our exclusive Carbon-Fiber style for a radical superbike look. To customize the look of your V-Max seat, choose from a wide range of leathers and add a colored welt at no charge if you wish. Your leather saddle will be a favored addition for years and will develop its own unique character as you rack up milage. Coordinating vinyl side panels keep the foam shape tight and saddle looking new longer.
Installation is simple using a tongue in the front and two bolts into your chassis through the sides of the seat. Two chrome button head bolts are included with the saddle so you'll have a very clean looking installation. Under the saddle we now provide room for your Yamaha tool kit beside the fuel filler. Don't forget to take good care of your new leather saddle with a quality conditioner like our Saddle Cream. Keeps all your leather goods supple and weather resistant for years.

FIBERTECH™ BASEPAN: A purpose built, hybrid material that provides a firm foundation to support the carefully designed ergonomics of the Corbin saddle.

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.

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.

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.
