American company Corbin has been easing saddle sores for years with their handcrafted seats for a multitude of bike brands and models.
Standard motorcycle seats are usually appalling quality with soft foam that provides no support or comfort. They are usually cheap and very uncomfortable.
You have to buy expensive models before you get a comfortable seat, low/high options, or leather.
Corbin is one of the biggest names in aftermarket seats with models for 27 motorcycle brands, including the electric Zero and three-wheeler Slingshot.
They are continually adding new models to their extensive range.
The latest are saddles for an eclectic mix of bikes including the Suzuki TU 250X for $US393, Honda Rebel 500 and 300 (CMX 500 in Australia) also $393 and the Ducati Panigale V4 ($US343). Postage is extra.
The Honda and Suzuki also have backrest options for $257.
All seats have colour, material and logo options.
All their seats are covered by a lifetime owner’s warranty for the basepan, foam and hardware, while the cover materials, heaters, coolers and workmanship are covered for one year.
If you are getting saddle sores or can’t last a whole day in the saddle, this is one of the cheapest options for getting some joy back into your riding.
