Comfortable for passenger?

So my fiance says the rr is horrible as a passenger bike. Is there a sport bike that is comfortable for both rider and passenger? I really only commute with mine and ride for fun. I have heard that the 05-06 ish 636 are pretty comfy but bulky and less nimble. I don't think that will bother me but was wondering what dot net experience says?

My girlfriend says the same thing pretty much. She will go for a ride with me every now and then but hates the seat. Not sure about which bike is passenger rider comfortable though.

I suppose you could get a Corbin seat for both seats of you wanted to make a difference. I've heard they are pretty comfortable.

i think all street bikes for a passenger are probably horrible... Ur best bet would be a cruiser if u, and she would like comfort... I mean the passenger seats on all sport bikes are about the same size and quality...

I have a Ninja 500R with a Corbin seat, I think that would probably be as comfortable as it gets for the passenger on street bikes. RR's or ZX's, I don't think Corbin seats would make any bit of difference... I think it would still be uncomfortable for the passenger no matter what.

If you care about a passengers comfort and still want sportbike, then the closest you are going to get is a sport tourer.

Yamaha FJR
Kawi Concours
Honda ST1300
BMW K1300S

And.. Ducati Diavel.



I've already been told my next bike is the Diavel. Doesn't bother me none either. I was thinking FLHX (HD Street Glide) but was told NO! Alright by me..

Currently own:
09' 600RR | Jade (ASV Shorties / Jardine RT-One)
96' 900RR | Jessica Alba (Wiseco/Erion/D&D/RaceTech/too many to list)

Haha, apparently our fiance's have the same opinion about being the passenger on our bikes. Might just have to pick up a little honda or ninja 250....

ctekguy.... love that ducati

cant imagine it would be... you can always add a gel insert or extra padding if a corbin is out of your price range.

+1 on the sport touring, I will probably have one as my next bike just for commuting and long rides

QFL, the 600rr is pretty much the only sportbike out there with a hard front and rear seat.
