Ive looked far and wide and cant find anyone who makes a seat cowl for the GRiSO. I really like the look and may have to resort to trying to make my own. Anyone know of any aftermarket options?

Sorry, not sure what you mean? Do you mean a plastic/fibreglass type cover for the pillion section? If so I thought Stucchi made one but I could be quite wrong. I usually am about cosmetic stuff.

Yes, the fiberglass or plastic cover that goes over the passenger part of the seat. I just like the clean sporty look they give a bike and thought one would look good on the GRiSO especially after seeing one on BMWs GRiSO clone the 9t.

I have seen some photos from Stucchi Luigi, but it might have been a prototype.

It doesn't look right on the stock seat as it protrude outward IMO.
I've been looking into a hard cover since I made my own solo seat for my now departed 09...
I've been thinking using the Breva Sport one or a Thruxton if it doesn't require too much engineering if not, I'll start from scratch.
Within the next few months, I'm also working on making a 6 gal metal gas tank so I don't have to plan rides according to the low autonomy of the factory one.
The trick will be to not destroy the awesome look of the bike.Laughing

Maybe a re-upholstered seat (as in the old days) will give you the bump you want?

This is the seat I made:

I had the logo embroidered in gold but it won't match too good on the Black Devil now so I like to make a cover for that seat instead of re-doing it.

Personally, I don't like the way the pillion seat rises up from the tail light shroud. To me the line should continue forward in a graceful arc. Obviously not good for pillion comfort but in Qld we have half price rego for single seater bikes.

If I owned a GRiSO (If I were a rich man - good name for a song), I would have a rider bum stop and a custom cowl that flowed with the natural lines of the bike. Made in plastic and welded to the OEM seat base, then painted.

But that's just me, with OCMD.

I agree with you ghezzi... That's the only thing on the bike that doesn't flow IMO.
I tried to shave more of it before recovering with vinyl but I didn't want to weaken the integrity of the seat at the very end.
I'll shape something up eventually...

I agree also.
The pillion accomodations for the Centauro felt made the passenger feel like they were going to slide off the back!!
So the stock GRiSO set-up is an improvement but I think ghezzi is right.

Original Bellagio pillions seat is the same as Centauro, not worth a knob of goats poop!
