My HR measures 1540mm length and 1500mm width, so the extra 55mm length might help. I reckon a bike will compress that much extra though.

I just put my KTM in to make sure modern bikes do fit. They do.

Turn the bars on an angle so you get length advantage, lift the rear wheel high enough to sit it on the back and push it down, the suspension compresses enough to let it go in. They sit tight too. Tie-downs are nearly superfluous to requirements.
You've done well there, given those dimensions.
Turns out to be a perfect fit!

Also, looks like the wheel arches leave enough room for the front wheel to fit snugly into the corner of the tub, maximising the diagonal dimensions.

I think the wheel arch issue on some models is proving to be the main interference.

It fits Bob, but only one way and only without the liner. Pop the front wheel onto the RHS wheel well, point it straight ahead and swing the rear off to the LHS. Tight as.

It's a PITA though, I CBF'd, just drop the tailgate.

Yeah, I actually got my width wrong - edited it above - 1400mm NOT 1500mm which gives me a diagonal of 1970mm measured. If you use the Mazdabator website dimensions against my HR ones, the diagonal for a Tuk-Tuk is actually longer than a HR.

You're right about the wheel arch though. I looked at a few today as I passed them and it is up close to the front making it even dodgier to get the bike in. I'd give it a go though. Lift it up and it will compress the suspension and fit in.
