Corbin Releases Front Seat for KTM RC8 Superbike

2008-2012 KTM RC8 Corbin Front Saddle

The Corbin design team came through with a saddle hat fits the exciting KTM RC8 Superbike perfectly. This seat was specifically designed to provide additional support in the rider area with more width and a dished seating platform.

Corbin kept the nose of the seat narrow so you still have good ground reach. This seat was a complete ground up design starting with our Fibertech basepan and when combined with the correct shaping gives your body firm support for longer riding range without hot spots. This seat was intentionally designed with less slope towards the tank to help curb the tendency to slide forward.

Corbin includes genuine leather seating in a variety of styles at no extra charge. Shown here with Carbon-Fiber leather seating with Asphalt side panels and orange stitched French seam for a subtle, yet custom look.

When the seat arrives, you’re going to be excited to take it for a ride so it’s a good thing it’s simple to install. No trip to the dealer for this one…just take it out of the box and mount it on your bike using the KTM key lock system. Corbin includes brackets pre-mounted on the saddle that integrate with the installation points on the RC8.

Corbin KTM RC8 Saddle MSRP: $363
