Corbin Seats
« on: December 04, 2018, 05:23:31 PM »
Corbin has released their new leather seat for the VFR1200X Crosstourer. They have a seat builder on their website and can custom tune the seat however you want.

This is how mine came out after the computer seat build.

I've only put about 800 miles in the saddle.  I bought a new OEM to replace the seat that came on the bike, so it's not really broken in.  I am not disappointed so far.  But, I am going to look hard at this offering from Corbin.  Looks great and they have a solid reputation.  Thanks for the heads up!

$500 US on the US site ($673 with heating)

£700 on the European site (£936 with heat)

I had a second-hand Corbin seat on my old 1200 Bandit years ago.  It was comfy and good quality, but deffo not £700 worth of comfy & quality, let alone the thick-end of a grand for a heated one!

It would be a lot cheaper to buy one from the US and pay the shipping and 20% VAT / import tax for UK customers, but the Corbin US website says that they pass the order to their nearest distributor/agent, so I suspect that means paying the local agent/distributor prices, meaning that there's no way around paying the hugely inflated prices for European customers.
