Our design goal for the Dual Touring saddle was to create a seat that would provide the most support and comfort possible without taking away from the beautiful neo-streamlined look of the Yamaha ‘liners. Notice how exquisitely the seat is shaped to follow the contours of the bike along the chrome fender strut and over the curve of the fender. This precision shape and fit is only possible with Corbin’s patented integrated molding technology.
Inside, we build the saddle up with our exclusive Comfort Cell foam to provide a firm, supportive ride that lasts. Our closed-cell material feels much firmer than stock, but this support is what keeps your body from “falling through” the foam and riding against the baseplate. The foam is cast into a shape that contours to your body and helps disperse weight more evenly… what we call Ergonoic Shaping. When riding, you’ll notice this shape eliminates hot spots and centralized pressure.
Dual Touring saddle is designed to work with your Yamaha Sissy Bar setup or with the Corbin removable backrest system. Naturally, we make a coordinated pad for your sissy bar to keep an integrated look. Corbin backrests install easily into hardware built inside the saddle and lock in place with a single set screw. Since they’re fully adjustable and simple to install, you can use a single backrest and transfer it front to back when needed or get a pair for full time use.
A variety of backrest models are available to suit your taste. For the Yamaha ‘liners we recommend the model #02-S as shown above to provide the best combination of form and function. These backrests are also ergonomically sculpted to provide a wide contact patch and best weight dispersion. Angle adjustment is simple and is achieved without removing the backrest from the seat. Special hardware in the front position allows the backrest to fold down to ease mounting the bike. This hardware also allows positioning of the backrest fore and aft.
As with most Corbin saddles, this seat uses genuine leather seating panels for a ride that breathes with your body. Luxurious and durable, leather will provide comfort for many years and will break in along with the foam shape for a personalized fit to your posture. Available plain or with our new Sharp Deco stitch that coordinates so nicely with the art deco design of the bike. Chrome studs are also included at no charge if desired. Be sure to take proper care of your leather saddle with a good conditioner like Corbin’s Saddle Cream. This will help it to resist the elements and remail supple.
Dual Tour also offers the option of electric heat (see below) or a chrome V-Rail to add to the nostalgic appeal. Triple plate chromed for a perfect finish, the V-Rail installs easily to the Corbin saddle without any additional brackets… simple. Naturally, if you will be using the Yamaha Sissy Bar, the V-Rail will not work in your seat. Installation of the Dual Touring saddle is simple and uses the stock key lock system. Brackets are included with the seat so all you have to do is remove your stock seat(s) and install the one-piece Corbin model.
