The electrically adjustable screen is for a tourer and gave me fresh air turbulence very similar to the MRA on the Bandit. The fairing is quite in terms of shielding engine with very little getting to the rider. The day was warm and breeze would have nice in traffic but just when moving to be comfortable.
