Where are the foot pegs??
I have several restored bikes along with a 2006 Goldwing with a sidecar. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.

Should have use a 10" wide tire so the outrigger wheels were not required. Looks like a fairly stock engine so probably not enough HP to turn a tire that big.

Years ago the NHRA was looking to make a affordable 1/2 scale dragster class using motorcycle engines similar to the JR dragster class only faster to entice the youngsters to stay in the sport. I thought I had pictures but I looked and could not find them. They were using 4 wheels instead of two but full on Pro Stock motorcycle engines. They were around for several years but I am not sure if its that popular. If I remember correctly they ran 1/8th around 7 sec @ +110MPH.

Sandy Kosman was initially involved if I recall correctly, I think they called it JR Comp.

What seems to strike my attention is not seeing any steering bars at all.
. That would mean you just lean to steer or stay straight !

Hard to tell from the pics but it looks like the alloy subframe at the front extends back on the left to connect to some sort of steering (looks like there is a damper at that point also)
