Default Minibike in sedan?

Can you fit a minibike in the back seat of a standard full-size sedan? I think the handle bars might be a bit of an issue, but otherwise it should fit in the footwell. If it does, that might make me get a minibike instead of another kart.

I am sure they have minibikes in Sudan, especially in Khartoum as it is a city of more than half a million people.

Wait... what?

Depends on the minibike.

Depends on the car.

With a Chevy Tahoe, you could fit 8 bodies, a fridge, a stove, 3 go karts, and still have enough room to fit 3 kids and 5 days worth of luggage for them. Or is that the suburban? Ok, maybe no stove and only 1 kart and 2 kids for 3 days.

Again, I said I wanted it to fit in a SEDAN not SUDAN.

I'm sure you can make it fit. Take some tools with you and disassemble parts if needed. The handlebars are usually the obstacle.

That is what I was thinking, just put it in the well between the front and back seats then just take off the handle bars and set it on the rear seat.

I don't plan on getting the mini-bike in the sedan, I'll get one of those transit vans so that I can have my own ATV park inside so I can test drive it. Those things are like the size of texas inside. Ok, not a transit van but I'll worry about how it fits when I get it. That is given it is less than 50-55" long.

I can tell you that a TrailSport TS-500 fits in the back seat of a 2011 Ford Fusion.
I have also had a Baja Minibike in the backseat of the same car.

It helps to loosen the handlebars so they fold down, but not always absolutely necessary.

Do you mind taking a few pictures so I can see exactly how they sit?

I don't have either bike anymore nor do I recall taking any pics of either of them in the car.

Theres a few older minis designed to fit in car trunks.

My rockford chibi is one. The handle bars fold down once you loosen two big knobs. It fit in the trunk of my cobalt that way.

No pics of course.
