Yup, such a simple one at that to do away with the often hideous looking saree guard on these beautiful machines. Anyway most people would take it off before even the bike leaves showroom or right after.

OT: A silly question comes to mind since it's just one usable rider seat ex factory for Hayabusa and new Kawasaki 10R. Will these bikes be registered as one seater only on RC? If yes, what if someone removes the pillion seat cowl later and installs a seat?

On the contrary if they're still being registered as two seaters, the saree guard couldn't be legally avoided IMO simply because there's no rear seat for that moment.

They are registered as single seat motorcycles. I know a number of users who has installed rear seats and pillion foot rests on ZX-6R, but their RC still says single seat. I dont think our cops keep an eye on that, yet! Heard a few RTO’s doesn’t even bother to check this and some RTO’s have registered them as 2 seater itself when it doesn’t have a pillion seat. Typical India!

So, insurance won't cover the pillion incase of an accident as the motorcycle is legally registered as a single seater?

I am not too sure about that. We have seen 5 seater cars carrying 7 people on board and even kids on lap and still gets coverage for all. I dont know about the legal side of this But yes, Insurance company once notices this has the right to deny the coverage for the pillion because this particular bike isn’t meant to carry a pillion in the first place.

2021 Suzuki Hayabusa launched at Rs. 16.40 lakh - Please continue the discussion on the new thread.
