A classy nostalgic look combined with excellent rider comfort and versatility. Corbin’s Classic Solo is specially designed to keep a vintage look on your Roadliner while providing generous, ergonomically designed seating. Additionally, both the Solo Saddle and Passenger Pillion seat accept a removable backrest for added comfort and support. Run the Solo by itself for a rugged, low look or add the passenger pillion for two-up cruising.
Both the Solo and Pillion accept a Corbin removable backrest for added support. In the solo seat, you get a total of 16 inches of vertical support with #02-S backrest installed (shown). Corbin backrests are sculpted to fit the shape of your back and provide the maximum contact patch. Naturally they are fully adjustable to provide a tailored fit to your posture. Installation and adjustment is simple so you can use a single backrest transferred front to back as needed or order two for full time use.
All Corbin saddles are designed with what we call “Ergonomic Shaping”. This means the saddle’s seating area is shaped to fit the curve of your body and provide proper weight distribution. This also gives more square inches of body contact to help eliminate hot spots and centralized pressure. Neutralized platforms help to curb sliding in the saddle and reduce rider fatigue.
For an added bit of luxury on those chilly morning rides, Classic Solo is available with an internal seat heater. With a simple flip of the conveniently located switch, the saddle will warm up and maintain temperature automatically. Heater and controller are built inside the saddle and preinstalled. We include a wiring pigtail that integrates with your Yamaha wiring for simple installation.
Inside, our exclusive Comfort Cell foam provides a firm, resilient ride that lasts. Our foam is firmer than stock so it can support your body weight for long days on the road without breaking down. Over time, Comfort Cell will break in and take on your body shape for a personalized fit to your posture. Although Corbin seats feel firm when you first ride on them, it is this firmness that supports your body and helps the saddle work properly.
Classic Solo and pillion have been tested to work with the Yamaha Removable sissy bar system if you prefer this to a Corbin removable rest in the rear. Because we have designed internal backrest hardware into the Classic Solo, we were unable to make this seat work with your stock pillion pad. If you prefer a totally solo look, you can mount the Solo by itself without a passenger pad. This makes a very clean look, but keep in mind you will have to remove the brackets from the rear fender. We’ve found that a couple of chrome button head screws make a nice plug for the holes that will be left where the brackets were.
Both saddle and backrest are richly tailored with genuine leather seating panels. Choose from a wide range of leather options for a look from mild to wild. On this page we show a standard black leather saddle and another model in all Grey Faux-Snakeskin. Leather will provide a nice perch that breathes with your body and will break in along with the foam shape for a personalized fit. Just be sure to care for your leather saddle with a quality conditioner like our Saddle Cream.
To further customize the look of your saddle, we can include chrome studs and our tasteful stitch pattern at no additional charge (stitch pattern is required for heated seat models). Just be sure to specify when ordering. Another custom option for your bike is a variety of backrest finishing plates for our Ovalbac models. Our standard finishing plates are ABS in: Leather look, Carbon-Fiber look, or primer. For a little extra, we can provide the finishing plates in chromed steel or even paint color matched like the pearl white one shown above.
This saddle cover has been updated to use our new backrest hardware cover with the sliding door as shown here. To install the backrest, just slide the cover over to the side. When the backrest is not needed, just slide it closed. It doesn’t get easier than that! Click image for details.
