I asked myself the same question and then looked underneath the seat in front of the rear tire. There was quite a bit of road junk accumulated. There are some connectors and a heat sink under there that could accumulate dirt and moisture. My buddy has an 09 Ninja 650 and that comes with a small hugger - don't know why Kawasaki wouldn't put one on the V.
Plus I think it makes the bike look better.
