Harley-Davidson FXR Warbird Style
A lot has happened in the motorcycle industry in the last two decades: big-tire choppers, classic bobbers, the return of the cafe racer, and stretched baggers, among others.
But it seems the Warbird style Corbin introduced almost 20 years ago was never forgotten. This year Mike Corbin finally caved in to the myriad of requests and has redesigned the Warbird.
The Warbird is a series of components designed to work together for a unified look or can be used individually to convert a stock Harley-Davidson FXR into a rolling work of art. Together, the components capture the essence of classic Warbirds like the Corsair, Mustang and Thunderbolts for an aggressive stance and smooth aerodynamic line.
Warbird Fairing takes its lines from the tank and carries them through the front of the machine. Frame-mounted design installs independently of the forks and works with the stock legs or a wider set like Corbin has done in the pictured attached above (from VRSC model).
The Warbird fairing stays straight regardless of the handlebar direction so it always looks tight and aggressive. Corbin fairing hides frame tubes and wiring around the triple trees giving a very clean appearance.
The Chin Spoiler is designed to integrate the lines of the FXR into the bottom end for a more visually streamlined look. The Corbin spoiler flows over the frame downtubes with a large duct built into the design for proper engine cooling. Corbin designed this piece to work with the stock FXR foot controls, but will work with forward controls with a simple modification.
Smooth Side Covers provide a very simple and clean look that molds gracefully into the contour of the frame, filling the space and smoothing out the lines.
Corbin side covers are available in two styles: FULL covers give a smooth line that fills in the entire “triangle” of the FXR chassis and therefore do not allow for passenger foot pegs. If you are using the Warbird tail section, this is an excellent choice. Corbin’s SHORT covers give a very similar look, but allow for passenger foot pegs.
The Warbird Tail Section is designed to replace the fender and inner fender as a single unit. It gives the bike a fast and clean line at the back that really puts the Warbird look over the top.
It includes an integrated license plate frame that is frenched in to keep that clean line. Inside the Warbird Tail is a small hideaway for items like cell phones, summer gloves, GDO remotes and keys. Corbin has even lined the inside to keep these items safe and secure.
The Warbird Saddle is designed specifically for use on the above tail section. Using high density Comfort Cell foam to provide firm support with a very low profile, the Corbin saddle is the perfect finish. Wide, dished seating provides excellent weight distribution so you’ll be happy to spend time on your bike. Topped off with genuine leather seating in your choice of colors and styles. Includes custom stitch pattern and Warbird logo embroidery.
