Corbin now offers our modular seating system for the late model GSXR motorcycles. Designed specially to provide the comfort riders demand for longer range and sport touring comfort. Engineered to provide the perfect blend of comfort, versatility and the usual Corbin sleek styling with a range of custom options to create a unique look on your bike. Naturally, the fit and finish are perfected and pure Corbin.
Front Saddle: Up front, the neutralized seating posture helps to reduce the tendency to slide forward in the saddle while on the brakes. This will greatly enhance your riding range by reducing strain on your wrists and knees. Corbin saddles are designed to help hold you in the sweet-spot on the bike but still allows for a range of movement for more spirited riding styles. Notice the ergonomic dish shaping of the seat. This provides you more square inches of body contact and better weight dispersion.
Rear Saddle: For your copilot we've taken the original race cowl shaping of the rear seat and converted it into a true passenger perch. Notice how we've shaped the saddle to provide sculpted support and weight dispersion similar to the front seat. This will give your passenger many miles of comfortable riding. Also like the front seat, we've neutralized the posture to help curb sliding forward in the saddle.
Smuggler™ Trunk: 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 GSXR to create an integrated, factory look. Slick details pick up the details of the bike and lend a bit more flair. Both the Smuggler trunk and passenger seat includes brackets preinstalled so they're ready for immediate installation.
Smuggler's capacity is enough for all the items you want to keep handy. That'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.
We've greatly enhanced comfort by building the saddles up with our high density Comfort Cell® foam, but kept the racetrack styling and fit to tail section. Not only is the shaping already designed to fit the contour of the human body, but our exclusive foam material will adapt to take on your shape upon break in. Our exclusive high density material allows us to build a seating platform that provides good support even with a low profile appearance.
Corbin's patented manufacturing process allows us to create shapes that fit perfectly to the bike and contours every arc and curve of the tank and tail section. Our Fibertech basepan provides a rigid foundation that supports the foam shape to assure the carefully crafted ergonomics remain intact. Underneath, the baseplate rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint job from scratching.
Leather seating panels are included along with a wide range of decorating options (shown here with Carbon-Fiber leather seating and Mercedes vinyl sides). Our leather seating provides a unique look, excellent comfort and will also break in along with your foam shape to give you a personalized fit over time. Coordinating vinyl sides keep the foam shape tight and the saddle looking sharp longer. Be sure to care for your leather saddle properly with a quality conditioner like our Saddle Cream. Your leather will age gracefully and develop its own unique character with proper care.
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.
KEY LOCK INSTALLATION: This saddle model uses a new mounting system designed by Corbin to allow installation and removable with a simple key lock. Once the included brackets are installed, the saddle can be removed easily by just inserting and turning the key. Need a demo? Just click the button.

Corbin's front saddle installs like stock with bracket premounted on the seat. Simply slide the saddle onto the bike rear first engaging the two rear pegs (near the back of the saddle) and lower the seat into position. Now secure it in place reusing the stock screws.
To install the pillion seat, slide the rear bracket into the tail section, align the front bracket over the stock key lock system and push down.
NOTE: This rear saddle does not accept a removable backrest as there is not enough structural support under the seat to safely bear the load or leverage of a passenger's weight on a backrest. Sorry
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. This will allow the leather to break in and age gracefully. Great for boots, gloves & jackets too. Simple rub-in, buff out application. *More Info*
