Seat cowl for the 1+1

I noticed that the passenger seat bolts into the tail. Is there an aftermarket seat cowl that can bolt into the tail in place of the seat to give the bike a nice monoposto look?

...similar to the ones they make for the Brutale.

Thanks CAG.

I think I'm going to have my friend make one for me in Carbon Fiber.

If you make a quality piece, you could sell dozens of them I suspect.

I have a friend that does pretty good work. So I gave him the rear hugger off of an F4-R to make a hugger for me. I'm going to see how he does with that and then I'm going to get him a rear set to see what he can do.

I'll keep you posted.

Here's a pic of the hugger he made for me without the clearcoat. He rated it a 9 out of 10. Keep in mind that this is his first one and he is a perfectionist. He's gonna do them for $175



I'm going to go see him in person and see what he can do for me regarding a seat cowl. I'll keep you guys posted.

I'm no carbon fiber expert, but that looks pretty good to me.

That's Looks Pretty Good Without The Clear Coat! You Can Put An Mv Logo Before He Applies The Clear Coat.
And What A Great Price Too. Keep Us Posted On His New Stuff.
