Everyone knows that Honda motorcycles offer decent levels of refinement and comfort as part of their DNA, but every bike can use a custom touch.

Two of Honda’s most popular 2013 models, the F6B and the CB500F, now have options for improved seating thanks to new products from Corbin and Mustang.

The CB500F is an awesome blend of performance and value, but the stock saddle is merely adequate for longer journeys. Corbin fixes this nicely with its new front ($282) and rear ($192) saddles for the middleweight twin.

As with all of Corbin’s seats, the CB500 saddles feature high density Comfort Cell foam atop a Fibertech basepan for durability and long-wearing support. Covered in genuine leather, the Corbin saddles mount up using the OEM connections for easy installation. 

On the other end of the displacement spectrum is Honda’s neo-bagger, the F6B. Based upon the proven Gold Wing, it boasts strong comfort credentials, but improvements are always around the corner.

Mustang has its answer ready for customers in the form of its new Tripper Fastback saddle (starting at $579).

Compared to the stock Honda seat, the Tripper boasts a more “in the bike” rider position, giving the pilot a full eight inches of back support and placing them a full inch closer to the tarmac. In addition to the high quality custom styling, the tapered Tripper saddle also improves passenger comfort by taking pressure of the thighs.

Finally, the new Tripper saddle also works with the stock passenger backrest. For all the latest Mustang saddle options, head over to
