There was a thread on the lattice removal several years back. The conclusion was - as long as you don't carry a passenger or a lot of luggage, you should be fine. The vibration/buzz reduction benefit was not mentioned in that thread at that time. Some liked the look, some did not. I kinda like the Ducati like lattice, and I use the passenger pegs for yet another position to sit in on longer rides. The "forward lean" that it causes will get my helmet into the smooth airflow area behind and above my windscreen, which eliminates the annoying helmet buffeting I get when riding in the 70 to 85 mph range.
I'm not that familiar with U.K. regulations - is that a standard issue license plate? It's huge!
