New products are coming out of R&D faster than our guys can get them online!

Among the new offerings are TWO seat models for Yamaha's new FZ-09 (shown). We have a solo Gunfighter model and a Gunfighter & Lady style for two up sport touring comfort. Both provide excellent rider comfort and clean, integrated looks.

In addition to the new Yamaha saddles, we also now offer the following:
  • Dual Saddle for 2014 BMW R1200 RT
  • Saddlebag set for Can-Am Spyder ST, STS & ST Limited
  • Gunfighter saddle for 2012-2014 Honda CB 1000 R

Complete information on this hot new products will be appearing very soon in our New Products section!





30 YEARS!
A hearty Congratulations to Rosa Sanchez who celebrated her 30th anniversary here at the Workshop of Wizards!

On April 16th Mike threw a company wide anniversary party at lunchtime in honor of Rosa and her years of dedication. By the way... Thanks Mike, the chow was great!

Rosa, who's Corbin ID number is only 18, was one of our top seamstresses for nearly two decades before pursuing other opportunities at the Corbin factory. She now works in the purchasing department and helps manage factory inventory.

Just to give you a feel for how long 30 years really is, 1984 was the year that Apple launched the first Macintosh computer!



All-Indian Bike Show
First Annual!

We were very pleased to be a part of the first All Indian Bike Show that was held during Bike Week this year.

Corbin's lot was the place to be as a nice mix of classic and modern Indian motorcycles took center stage. Sponsored by Indian Motorcycle company with a little help from the folks at Jack Daniel's and Corbin.

Dr Mark Stanley took the reins in organizing the event and was kind enough to provide some words and pics for the wrap up gallery you will find HERE. Our good friend Marilyn over at Iron Trader News was Johnny On The Spot covering the event and also shared pics for our GALLERY.

Thanks to all who stepped up to make it happen and especially those who participated. Looking forward to hosting the show again in 2015!





Kymco Xciting 500
Fresh out of R&D is our first ever saddle for Kymco scooters! This particular model was brought to our attention by the folks at Mizer Motor Works who have big plans for this bike.

Although new to Kymco, Corbin is no stranger to maxi-scooters. This dual saddle provides an excellent two-up comfort with ergonomically designed support and optional passenger backrest. Additionally we've build the rider's position further back to increase legroom for taller riders.

All this is built on top of our exclusive Comfort Cell foam and covered using genuine leather seating panels in your choice of colors and styles. Installs easily and works with the Kymco key lock.

Indian Trunk
We've just polished off all our fresh tooling for the 2014 Indian Chief models and are packing up to show it all off at Bike Week!

Our new Tour Box comes color matched to the factory paint and is specially sculpted to emulate the lines of the bike to conceal the generous storage capacity which is large enough for a full face helmet with room to spare.

This slick looking box comes fully lined to protect your cargo and includes genuine leather backrest pad and armrests coordinated to your seat. Anodized aluminum mounting brackets look clean and keep a clean, low line for best looks.

Get all the details on the new Tour Box and all of our seat models in the Indian Chapter of this website.





Indian Chief Trunk
Two new products for the 2014 Indian Chief are now out of molding and headed for the finishing touches!

Our new Tour Box (headed for the paint shop now) provides enough room for a full face helmet with room to spare. Designed to emulate the lines of the Chief for a nice integrated look. This baby will be fully lined on the inside and color matched to the factory paint. Naturally a generous passenger backrest pad will be included.

Our new Tour Box will work excellent with the stock seat, Corbin Dual Tour seat or our brand new Classic Solo and Passenger Pillion Pad.

Speaking of our new Classic Solo saddle... Designed as two separate pieces to give you the utmost in versatility. You can easily change from Solo cruiser with just the front seat or set it up for two-up touring with the Full Setup of Solo, Passenger Pillion and rider backrest. Genuine leather with a host of color options for looks from Mild to Wild!

You'll find both of these in our Indian Chapter soon.





NEW BMW GOODIES!
The boys in R&D have really been getting out the new stuff quick. In fact we have two new products online this week just for BMWs.

As you can see above, we have a new dual saddle with optional heat for the new BMW F800 GS Adventure. This fine saddle is built up with our high density Comfort Cell foam to provide miles of support and includes genuine leather seating and a wide range of options for a custom look.

Also out this week is Corbin's awesome Smuggler Trunk for the BMW K1600 GTL. Combining clean solo looks with convenient locking storage and excellent rider comfort. The Smuggler comes paint matched to your Beemer and ready for immediate installation.

Find both of these items in our New Products section.





New Design Update!
UPDATE: We have the kit in hand and will be making a slight modification to the seat and also supplying a new amp bracket that will allow us to keep the optimum seating position without interference. Available very soon, stand by!

Attention 2014 Indian Chief Owners: We are currently in the process of re-engineering our Dual Touring saddle to work with the Indian audio kit.

It has been brought to our attention that our new Dual Touring saddle will not install on the bike because of the under-seat mounted amplifier used by the Indian audio package. In order to expedite the fix, we've ordered the system from our local dealer and will be updating our seat tooling as soon as possible. At this time we are not sure if we will be able to correct our existing tooling or if an entire redesign will be in order.

Unfortunately the Indian accessories were not available when we made our seat tooling... it's the down-side to having such a proactive R&D department. Our sincerest apologies to anyone effected by this incompatibility and please rest assured we will get you all fixed up and back on the road in style.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to call us at 800-538-7035 or write: Corbin01@Corbin.com
