The plush ride and this mileage are good to know.
Arm rest: No. In fact, I never tried or did any research after this post.

Mileage update: has increased, 16.40 kmpl as of this evening. Approx. 10% of my daily drive is now through a very bad stretch of road where culvert construction and re-laying are going on endlessly. I am sure the mileage would have touched 17kmpl otherwise.

That's reassuring since we have a daily round trip of about 50kms.

Also: I'll check with the sales persons if they have a passenger side accessory contact for the handrest and let you know.

Got the TD this morning. I like it.

I checked with them, they do not have it. The original does not look too complex to recreate accurately is what I am thinking. Will put effort to it, if I go with it.

Sorted. The amount of space was an eye-opener. I could fit the bigger of my cycles without removing anything or making any changes to the setup.

Thank you, Sandeep, Shiva, Repsol and others who have contributed directly and indirectly to this thread. Booked a 110 AMT last evening.
