Naked New Generation

Puig Naked New Generation windscreen that is...Got mine last week and have had two trips under my belt...I love this screen...I am 5'9" and have the lowering link and Sargent low seat...I have the screen set in the low (A) position...The air flows from the screen to just over my helmet (which I like)...A lot of the body buffeting is gone and the the little wings on each side (called "manoples" or hand guards by Puig) do a good job of lessening the wind on my hands...I ran the bike up to 100mph and the pocket of air was really good at that speed...Only drawback: price...It lists for over 2 bills..got mine for around 170...In the saddle I can see over the screen really well and it does not impede my view at all...I got the smoke color with I think accents the bike nicely...

How do you think the pressure was at speed? Do you think that it will have any stress problems ?

I can't say I rode a long ways at speed (the 100mph jaunt)..but do I think it will have stress problems? No I don't..Puig is a very good name in motorcycle products...I will report any problems I have with it if any occur...

They're (typically) very good wind screens.
Thanks for the reply

Solomoto.com is where I got mine for 172.98...The picture on their site has the wrong windscreen on it (it's the older screen for gen.1 Versys)...I called them before I ordered as the part no. 5255 was correct...

Took a ride up the Wind River in Washington State yesterday (4/14/14)..190 miles all together...Some speed limits were exceeded...The screen holds up to over a ton ('60's slang) quite well...the only time I had any problems with buffetting was around 18 wheelers on the freeways...Going on a 700 miler in June..hours of slab..2 lane hwy..mountain and island roads..should be a good test...
