HOLISTER, CA March 22, 2012 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Corbin a. a leading innovator in the design and production of world class quality saddles announced today two additional new saddles for Harley’s new Softail Blackline.  Corbin is the first once again to offer a variety of saddles for Harley’s new bike due to their “round the clock” diligent efforts of their R@D Department.  Riders now have three different choices to make their ride more comfortable. The latest additions include the Gunfighter Solo Saddle that gives you an entirely different look for your bike with uncompromised rider comfort and the uniquely styled Classic Solo Saddle with Pillion. The Classic Solo looks excellent on your Softail while providing an extraordinary amount of rider comfort.

The Gunfighter is the most recognized and revolutionary seat model in the industry…quickly became the most popular design in the Corbin arsenal and went on to become the most copied saddle model ever. Up front an ergonomically contoured saddle provides a large area of body contact for best weight dispersion. Our fastback tail section is padded and upholstered to provide for short trip passengers while providing the rider with additional lower back support.

Simple to install or remove, the Gunfighter mounts to stock locations with a single bolt. Features genuine leather seating for a perch that breathes with your body and breaks in with the foam shape for a personalized fit. Choose from a variety of leather styles to customize the look of the saddle. MSRP is $467.00. In the side panels and tail, Corbin uses coordinating vinyl material to keep your foam shape tight and the saddle looking sharp longer.

Available in various styles including:

  • Bomber Jacket leather seating, sides and tail with gold flame stitching
  • Black natural grain leather seating with coordinated sides and tail with black stitching
  • Black natural grain leather seating with black faux ostrich sides, asphalt tail and grey stitching

The uniquely styled Classic Solo’s seating platform conforms to the shape of your body for maximum support and more square inches of body contact. This is one of the secrets of long range comfort and is a staple of Corbin design. For added back support, Corbin’s Classic Solo saddle accepts an optional rider’s backrest that provides an additional nine” of vertical support. Corbin’s backrests come covered to match your saddle and also offer the option of custom finishing plates on the rear. Backrests come standard with an ABS leather look backing plate, but you can choose a carbon-fiber look or a paintable model at no added charge. For a little extra, Corbin offer pre-painted gloss black that coordinates perfectly with the look of the bike.

For maximum versatility Corbin designed a matching passenger pillion seat. Pillion pad is built with their exclusive high-density Comfort Cell foam to provide firm support that lasts. It comes decorated in your choice of leather styles to coordinate with your Corbin Solo. Installation is simple with all required hardware included. Passenger pillion works with a variety of H-D accessories and options like the “detachable” sissy bar.

For an added bit of luxury, the Classic Solo saddle has the option of electric heated seating. This system easily wires directly to the Backline’s battery and provides heat with the flip of a switch. Heater unit and controller are built into the saddle and come preinstalled. Switch is conveniently located on the left side of the seat. MSRP: $539.00 (Heated) $429.00 (Non-heated)
