Bucket shaping of the front seating area gives an unprecedented amount of body support. Notice how it curves up at the back to provide support to your lower back. Towards the front of the bucket we design the saddle narrower to allow for ground reach. Smaller riders may prefer to slide forward and out of the bucket at stop signs for best ground reach.
Corbin’s Gunfighter saddle for the Yamaha XSR is an example of incorporating both form and function. For a solo look, the Gunfighter tail section is shaped to emulate the lines of the bodywork with a fastback tail section.
