The design hints at a touring seat and adds more for the passenger that is all but non-existant on the stock seat (I wouldn't want to be a passenger on the stock seat LOL).

I wasn't uncomfortable riding distances on the stock seat, nor did I have any problem sliding forward on it during braking, but I do like this design. I does look like it might be more comfortable but is more comfort actually needed for the price? That's up to each person to decide (e.g. I swapped out my stock Sportster seat for a Sundowner seat that provides more comfort when touring).

I've heard that Corbin seats are comfortable but they aren't very good looking. I'd rather wait till something better comes out.

It is some very comfortable looking seats for sure. That back rest with the glove box is a pretty good idea and it looks decent too. But since I have a policy of "NO RIDERS" I don't need to change my seat, the one I have is fine.

@OldDawg, thank you for this post. The timing is just right. I went for a long ride yesterday and I have the stock seat. My behind was pretty sore by the end of the ride. I'm going to take the design of this new seat to a local seat manufacturer here in Pune, India and get it made. I don't think this is available in India yet but it looks so very comfortable.

Keep us Indians posted of your success in getting the Corbin seat manufactured locally. Like it too and if you are successful, maybe I order one also.

Funny... another crappy seat from the Harley Davidson Wooden Seat Division. Why am I not surprised? I have had three HDs and the OEM seat sucked on all of them. Bought a Mustang Solo for my Sporty, but not many choices for my Street Rod without going custom.

Another option for those that want a more confortable seat without changing the seat design is a gel insert that any upholstery shop should be able to install. It's not all that expensive and gel packs are far superior to the foam padding for any seat.

I am on line looking at Air Hawk models. What model best serves one on a Street 750?
So I have been using the Airhawk DS for the GF when she is on the back. Airhawk Dual Sport Seat Pad - RevZilla

And for my butt I use an old Airhawk R that my dad gave me. Airhawk R Seat Pad - RevZilla

ALSO, make sure you do not have your Airhawk inflated like in the pictures. Seriously. You want to have your butt (sit bones) about 1/2" off of your seat. You should feel the air move around in the chambers when you rock from one cheek to the other. It'll look something like this:
