So that's what's underneath. I've got one of those too. Yes would have a footpeg on the offside, dunno about Retro but on the other frame style it includes the muffler mount and swingarm rebound rubber.

Nope. The 2015 Retro came with a rear fender rack instead of a passenger seat.

On my Retro, I used a Denfeld passenger peg from a/5 or /6 BMW on the left side, others will also work, the Denfeld is just what I happened to have.
There are some photos and more information on this thread;

Did you install a passenger tractor seat ?
I'd like to see what that looks like on a Retro.

I did not, but I’ve seen photos on the forum of Retros with rear tractor seats installed.
I only occasionally have a passenger on the rear and I didn’t want that utilitarian look , I wanted to keep my Retro a bit “Sporty” looking So I went with the standard rack with a pad that I keep in the saddle bag when I don’t need it.

Interesting, my M70 has the same setup, but ribbed rubber instead of dimpled metal.
