Old School visual appeal blended with the R18 styling and combined with Corbin’s attention to aerodynamic design. This stunning fairing looks great while giving excellent wind protection, so you can go out and rack up mileage on your R18. Subtle sculpting makes it beautiful to look at. Another example of form and function expertly combined in Corbin fashion.
Corbin started with a shape familiar to the fairing designs you’ve seen on cruiser models before, but upgraded for better aerodynamics. Notice how the fairing’s shape starts at the headlight and flows back to part the wind more gracefully. This transfers the highest pressure area in line or behind the steering pin, which gives much greater stability at speed (a kind of rudder effect). This shape also brings the slipstream “bubble” further back to get you out of the wind.
As the fairing is designed to slip through the wind, it creates less turbulence and buffeting, which gives you a quieter and smoother ride than the standard plexiglass windshield. Naturally, this stability and low-pressure slipstream help to relieve fatigue associated with long days on the highway. It also helps to lower wind noise, which adds to the comfort value. Of course, the streamlined shape looks perfect on your R18.
If you’re looking to keep the Rock rolling, Corbin offers an audio kit upgrade for your R18 fairing. Using your Bluetooth device as the source, you’ll have 500 watts of power at your fingertips. The dash-mounted controller gives convenient access to most functions so you won’t need to fumble with your cell phone– something quite tricky with gloves on. Included with your kit is a pair of JL Audio 5.25-in. Coaxial speakers pre-mounted in the fairing.
Corbin’s Touring fairing is simple to install with complete directions and all required brackets included. To assure a perfect look on your R18, the brackets come painted to coordinate with the bike and give a subtle appearance. Installation can be accomplished by an average weekend mechanic.
