Although it may look cool, the stock "seat" on the R model is anything but comfortable. We've corrected that with an ergonomically corrected seating platform built up with high-density Comfort Cell foam. Shaped like your body to create a greater area of body contact and proper weight distribution, the Corbin saddle eliminates pressure points to increase riding range. Built firm to stay resilient and support your body all day.
After an initial break-in period, Comfort CellŪ foam will adapt to your body to provide an even greater degree of comfort. Additionally, the seating platform 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 ground reach.
Our Fibertech basepan creates a firm foundation for the foam shape and keeps the carefully designed ergonomics intact. Engineered to fit every contour of the Super Duke and provide a perfect fit. Corbin's front saddle mounts to the KTM bodywork just like stock reusing the four OEM bolts and uses the stock key lock system for mounting.
Corbin saddle comes standard with genuine leather seating inserts for a true touch of luxury. 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. As an added custom touch, we embroider the Corbin logo using a color coordinated orange thread.

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
