Old bikes may be indeed very cool, especially in the eyes of those who were young when these bikes had their moment of glory. However, looks can be a bit deceiving, at least when it comes to seating comfort. No matter how much you'd love vintage bikes, you just have to admit that most of them are not that comfortable for long hauls.Vintage looks blended with high-tech modern ergonomics
If anything, the Moto Guzzi California Vintage lives up to its name very well. Other bikes just make an empty claim and hope that adding "vintage" to the badge somehow enhances their mojo, but it's not the case with this Guzzi. The machine oozes retro styling, and Corbin took this as the pivotal concept when designing the new Dual Touring saddle.

The new seat not only maintains the retro attire of the bike, but also improves it. The standard seat is decent at best, truth be told, but the Corbin unit adds nice flowing shapes to the machine, harmoniously blending into the concept.

Of course, the white side panels with the Italian flag have been pictured to stress out how neat the California can be with the right accessory. Like all Corbin seats, this one is manufactured using ergonomically-cut Comfort Cell foam over a Fibertech basepan, covered in genuine leather which will also break in alongside the padding.

Heating elements can be installed, too, and the saddle comes with an easy-to-use concealed mount for the optional backrest. Cover colors and grains are also available. Corbin Dual Touring seats for the Moto Guzzi California Vintage will set you back with $493(€453) or $653 (€600) for the heated version.
