HOLLISTER, CA – June 24, 2014 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – BMW says Pure passion, pure design, pure riding pleasure… But Corbin figured they could add a little style and some long range comfort to the equation as well.
Corbin started with their exclusive high density Comfort Cell foam for a sleek profile while providing a firm, supportive ride. Then shaped the saddle for a classic, solo look and sculpted the rider seating ergonomically for proper weight distribution. This also helps to eliminate the centralized pressure felt from the stock seat. In the nose area, they sculpt the saddle narrow to allow for ground reach.
For a solo look, the Gunfighter tail section is shaped to emulate the lines of the tank with a fastback tail section. On the inside, the tail is padded and upholstered to provide for short trip passenger capability. Although the shaping of the tail is designed primarily for looks, the Comfort Cell foam still provides a good perch for your copilot on short to medium trips.
Notice how close the Corbin saddle fits to the tank, chassis and fender… this kind of fit comes only from a Corbin saddle and their unique Fibertech basepan. Their rigid base material not only fits perfect to the bike, but provides a firm foundation to support the carefully designed foam shape. Corbin’s ergonomic shaping creates a visually pleasing look on the motorcycle and adds to the custom appeal. Over time, our exclusive foam material will break in for a personalized fit to your body.
Corbin uses genuine leather seating in all of their saddles because it breathes with your body and will conform along with the foam shape during break in. This provides an added bit of luxury on those long rides. In the side panels, they use a coordinating vinyl material that will support the foam shape and keep the saddle looking sharp longer. Choose from genuine leather seating panels in a wide range of colors and textures.
Corbin’s new Gunfighter Saddle rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint job and mounts to your bike similar to stock. Corbin’s one-piece seat uses two mounting tabs at the front that integrate with your BMW chassis and a single bolt at the rear from under the fender.
