Any rider who’s accommodated their non-riding half by installing a backrest knows the angst of changing that rebellious showroom style to a more practical ride. Akin to detachable windshields, it’s the uncool, but practical side of riding.
Aptly named the Gunfighter & Lady seat, Corbin’s latest seating solution helps riders safely enjoy a passenger on the back of their XSR 900.
‘The sculpted riding positions disperse body weight across a greater area so you enjoy mile after mile of comfort,’ the press release reads. It’s not a total loss for the rider, a neutralized seating platform curbs the tendency to slide towards the tank under braking which will help to reduce fatigue.
As far as quality goes, Corbin’s patented molding and manufacturing process promises to provide a precision fit to the tank and tail section while the whole saddle rides on rubber bumpers to protect the bike’s paint. Inside, the saddle manufacturers exclusive Comfort Cell foam offers firm support that lasts, according to Corbin.
While Corbin feels this addition gives a ‘sporty, custom look yet still provide sport touring class comfort and ergonomic support’, there are many bikers who have yet to meet a sissy bar they like. However, the saddle’s piping certainly invokes a classic era of riding. Riders who like the piping can install the seat without the backrest.
The saddle installs just like stock and integrates with the factory key lock and includes all required brackets mounted on the saddle so it’s ready for immediate installation. Optional backrests install into Corbin saddle with just a single bolt.
