In dark smoke.
It only spent a few days on the bike as it didn't work for me.
£60 delivered.

I'm 5ft 11in and got low level but noticeable helmet buffeting with the standard screen at 90mph upwards. I tried the Puig because it has a low-ish profile double bubble design so I thought it might stop. However, much the same. I now have an MRA which is better but not 100%, the MRA is wider which I think makes a difference for me. However I get less buffeting with all the screens when I'm wearing my snug-fit Dainese leather jacket rather than a textile. Lots of things seem to affect air flow on these bikes.

The Puig looks good on the bike though...

Nah it's the shorter one, hence the name I guess, 345mm I think?
Have a look at Conquest Carbon or M&P, they sell it...

It's OK, good luck, it's a bit of a lottery...
