But if you don't plan on riding in the rain, then I suppose it can serve some purpose as long as it's not too wet outside.
Riding through rain puddles or on wet pavement will pretty much give the same result as without the hugger, only marginally better.

For that purpose it will do just fine. But like I said, don't expect too much in terms of protection from spray and mud.I got mine mainly to match the look of my V1K. The 650 seems naked back there without a hugger.
