Apparently, Corbin is looking for 2016+ Monster R&S models for R&D.

From Corbins website: "As much as we'd like to, we can't buy every new bike that hits the street. Problem is we need the bike in our R&D department to make parts for it. See where we're headed with this?

Yeah, just like all yer pals, we want to borrow your bike! Difference here is that we're willing to make it worth your while... quid pro quo. If you let our R&D boys borrow your bike, we'll give you the first production piece for free. Simple.

Here's our current Most Wanted list: Ducati: 2016+ Monster R&S"

@drspencer I know a few shops that use that policy "lend us you bike as a Guinea pig and you get the fist product for free" . Personally, I think every shop should do this.

2018 Multistrada 1260 Pikes Peak (All-Purpose Fun)
2016 Monster 1200 R (Rambunctious Fun)

Regrettably, it looks as though Corbin does not presently make a Gunfighter for the 201-207 R model bikes.

Are there any other manufacturers that do? I can't find much.

Thanks

I know. Hopefully they will make one soon as I believe 2017 Monster seats all seem the same: base, S and R. Not 100% sure however.
I could use a Two-Up seat such as this: http://www.corbin.com/ducati/dm12s14gl.shtml

For those that bought the Corbin seat for your Monster, now that you have had it for a while, any complaints? I am looking around to get a seat, not necessarily for me cause I like the stock seat, but for whenever I ride up 2-up. I need something more comfortable for 2-up riding since the stock seat is not really made for a passenger.

I found this Corbin website that makes seats for the Monster, even with a back rest!!! I was looking on YouTube about it, and there were some negative comments of "DO NOT BUY," but looking on here, seems to have very positive feedback about the seat. So I trust my fellow Monster riders over YouTube comments.

Any regrets buying it? How's the quality holding up? Have you taken a passenger on it yet, and what is their feedback, especially if you have the back rest? Any sketchiness about the quality of the back rest how it's held in place?

I know that the site goes up to the 2016 M821, I have the 2017 M821, anyone know if there are any dimension differences in which the seat won't work?

I'm happy with mine. At first I thought "no way this is going to be comfortable" because it is firm, but the shape and how it doesn't slope towards the tank are what make the difference. My "boys" are much happier not slamming into the tank slowing down quickly going into corners! I can't speak to passenger comfort as the stock seat ruined the idea of my wife going on the back of the Monster with the "vag-gripper" pointy area down the middle of the pillion part of the seat.

The "vag-gripper" HAHA! Funny thing is that, the only reason I am considering a more comfy seat is because I took my wife out for a ride yesterday, and her complaint was that split down the middle of the pillion seat that was very uncomfortable. Otherwise, she said the posture of being back there wasn't bad.
Glad to hear you still like it. I emailed them today to inquire about if their 2016 M821 seat will fit my 2017 one since they only advertise to 2016 M821.

I still use my Corbin seat all the time. I have a 14 monster so I can't speak for your model year. I've never had any issues with it (rips or loose stitching) and it is really comfortable. My wife likes it so much better than the useless stock seat. The backrest works well. She's never complained about it and we go on rides that usually last 3-4 hours if not longer at times. I definitely don't regret the purchase and would do it again if I had to.
