Description

Classic Solo provides an excellent riding position combined with a nostalgic look. Wide, dished seating gives you a greater area of body contact for superior weight dispersion. Naturally our Classic Solo is built with our high-density Comfort Cell® foam for a firm supportive ride that will last all day.

Classic Solo works with our removable rider’s backrest for added back support. Corbin backrests are fully adjustable for a tailored fit to your posture and are simple to install with just a single lock screw under the saddle. Once installed angle adjustment is simple and does not require removal of the backrest. Choose any of the backrest models we offer to suit your taste (#BR Ovalbac shown).

Corbin’s Classic Solo works with a Touring style passenger pillion pad for passenger capability. Corbin pillion bolts up easily on your R 18 and offers the added option of a passenger backrest. Our Touring Pillion provides a generously sculpted seating position built thick for long-range comfort and support.

As with all Corbin saddles, genuine leather seating is included in your choice of colors and styles. Leather makes a great seating material due to its durability and its ability to breathe with your body. Leather will also break in with the foam shape for a personalized fit. Coordinated vinyl side panels complete the look and keep your saddle shape tight. Just remember that you need to care for your leather saddle properly using a quality conditioner like our Saddle Cream. This will help your leather to stay water resistant and develop its own unique character as it ages.

For those chilly morning rides we offer an option of heated rider seating. We incorporate a heater unit under the leather seating and a switch on the left side of the saddle (so you can turn it on without removing your hand from the throttle). Just flip the switch and the seat will warm up and maintain temperature automatically. Corbin’s heater comes completely pre installed in the saddle and you need only integrate the included pigtail. Sorry, but heater is not available in the passenger pillion.

No other motorcycle saddlemaker in the world offers this kind of versatility and quality in their saddle designs. Genuine leather, removable backrests, Comfort Cell® foam and a host of included decorating options make Corbin the best value around for your hard earned dollar! Additionally, our Classic Solo Saddle and pillion are simple to install and use stock locations on your R 18.

Need more options? Our #BR model backrests have removable finishing plates on the rear available in a range of styles. The standard plate is an ABS leather look, but we can also provide one with a carbon-fiber look or primer and ready for your custom painter. For just a little extra, we can provide the finishing plate on your backrest prepainted gloss black. These make a perfect finishing touch.

Specification

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.


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!


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.


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.


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.


Corbin Backrest System
The first and most versatile removable backrest system available for motorcycles! Corbin’s backrests provide added vertical back support and long range comfort. Supported by internal hardware for a very clean look. Backrests adjust to rider’s profile for a tailored fit and install or remove easily as desired. A very popular option!


Electric Heat
As an option we can include electric heat in this saddle! This option provides a true bit of luxury for when the temperature starts to drop. Simple to install with major components pre-built into the saddle. Just wire in the included pigtail and you’re ready to roll.

Warning! Heater elements should never be installed in motorcycle seats used by riders that cannot sense heat.

Notes

Measurements:

  • Rider seating: 15.5″ wide x 15″ long x 4″ deep
  • Passenger seating: 11.5″ wide x 11.5″ long

Solo saddle installs like stock using the tab at the front and stock bolts into the subframe at the rear. Corbin saddle uses a heavy duty aluminum bracket to allow for support of the Corbin backrest system.

Touring Pillion mounts with a tab in the front that sits on top of the Solo Saddle mounting tab and secures with three longer bolts supplied with the saddle and a single bolt at the rear. This arrangement provides the strength to allow for the Corbin removable passenger backrest.

We have designed these components with heavier duty mounting brackets to allow for use of the removable backrest. As such, the chrome tab cover supplied by BMW for the stock seats will not work on the Corbin seat.


Corbin saddles (with very few exceptions) include Genuine Leather Seating to provide a luxurious look and feel….   don’t let anybody tell you that vinyl is just as good! You wouldn’t buy vinyl boots would you?


Warning: Heater elements (when available) should never be installed in motorcycle seats that will be used by riders that cannot sense heat. This could create a hazardous condition.
