Versatility and stylish looks for Yamaha's ultra V-Twin sportbike! The Corbin wizards have specially designed a modular system that can easily convert from solo to dual riding that works on a key lock system. The Corbin system consists of the following components: Front Saddle, Passenger Saddle, and the exclusive Corbin Smuggler Trunk. Corbin has created the perfect blend of form and function that's as easy to use as turning a key.
Front Saddle: Up front, the Corbin rider's seat offers enhanced ergonomics that provides proper weight distribution. This sculpted seating area fits the shape of your body and helps to eliminate hot spots and the centralized pressure you feel from the stock unit. The platform has been neutralized to curb sliding towards the tank under braking which also helps to reduce rider fatigue. All of this comfort is wrapped up in a package that fits perfectly to the chassis of the bike for a completely integrated look and clean visuals.
Rear Saddle: For your passengers we've also designed an ergonomically correct seat for touring class support. Wide sculpted seating provides a contact patch of nearly 100 square inches so your passenger can rack up the mileage with you in comfort. Passenger seat installs easily with an integrated key lock so you can easily switch between a rear seat or Smuggler trunk.
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 the best looks, Smuggler comes prepainted to coordinate with your factory paint and provides a secure area for your traveling essentials. We've built the Smuggler to fit perfectly to the lines of the MT-01 to create an integrated, factory look. Slick details pick up the details of the bike and lend a bit more flair. Our patented molding process and exclusive materials create a part with very minimal variation from piece to piece so we can design a precision fit to the bodywork.
Smuggler's capacity is enough to keep your essential gear handy. That's more than enough room for keys, maps, spare gloves, cell phone, PDA, bottled water.... There's even enough room for your digi-cam 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.
Front and rear saddles use our exclusive high-density Comfort Cell foam that allows us to build a supportive saddle without a bulky shape. Corbin's Wizards are masters at combining form and function into a saddle that makes you as happy to look at as it does to ride on.
We include genuine leather seating in your choice of styles for looks from outrageous to stealthy. Shown here, we've created a cover design that coordinates with the bike perfectly and adds to the visual appeal. Both saddles are pictured with black carbon-fiber leather seating and Asphalt vinyl sides. Carbon-Fiber leather lends a nice sporty touch while the Asphalt sides provide contrast.
Smuggler is constructed of our durable Fibertech material for a fine finish and long term durability. The door opening is fully weather-stripped to guard against foul weather and keep cargo dry. Locking door keeps things secure and simple to access. Our new stainless steel hinge mechanism allows the door to open very wide to keep it out of the way when stowing your gear.
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.

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.
