2up rarely?

Hi,

I'm just about ready to pull the trigger on a new dragster my only concern is that very rarely my son likes to join me on rides.
Obviously these rides are riden pretty mildly due to my precious cargo.
Is there room on the dragster for riding with a passenger?

Would get a bit crowded on there tbh.

I'd call it a 1.5 seater rather than a 2 seater!

The Brutale would be a more suitable choice if riding with a passenger is a concern

Also remember the lighter the bike the more changes in load such as a passenger screw up the suspension settings.

You also will have your nuts squashed into the tank as the pillion will push you forward as the seat is short.... I removed my rear pegs for the safety of my kids and my nuts.

I throw my 10 yr old on, no issues. She loves i, never wants to get off.

Put the missus on one morning to go to breakfast and front wheel really wants to come up, constantly leaning forward and cant use the power.

Bit different to the old R1...

Definfitly a single seater (not a bad thing ;P )

Honda CBR250RR 88' / Yamaha YZF R6 03' / Yamaha YZF R1 04' / Yamaha YZF R1 05' / Yamaha YZF R6 05' (track beast) / Kawasaki Ninja 250R 09' (track beast)/ MV Brutale Dragster RR 15
