Givi A256A Windscreen

OK, saw this fairing on the Givi website, and I'm curious if anyone has any experience with it? I've only had naked bikes, but there are times flying down the freeway in the Texas mid-day heat when humidity and thermals really mess up normal airflow that wouldn't be an issue on a twisty two laner in the hill country. I think it looks pretty decent, but if it even further distorts airflow or contributes nothing positive, I don't want to spring for it. Any thoughts? And while the website has it as an early model fit, has anyone installed it on a later model (mine is 2007). Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Cheers,
Devin

I would also like to know how well the small windscreens help at interstate speeds. I've been driving mine about 35 miles each way on the interstate to a class a couple times per week and sometimes the wind is just killer and makes it a real effort to stay at 75-80.

Do the windscreens really help?

Just sold mine on here. I thought it worked great at highway speeds. Going from no windscreen to that Givi was excellent. I now ride with the buell M2 flyscreen which really only takes pressure off your chest and directs it directly at your head.

The Givi made interstate riding comfortable for me, and if I tucked up a little I had a perfect little pocket to rest in. At a normal riding position I could feel the wind hitting at the top of my helmet but it never threw it around or anything. I'd recommend it.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the "A256A", the hardware kit for attaching the A755N?? Givi's part numbering system can can be a little confusing, make sure of what you are getting before you place your order. I just ordered an A240 windscreen with the A257A 919 specific fitment kit. Looks very similar in shape, size and function to the A755N, but the entire unit is transparent with light smoke. I'll let you know my thoughts on it when it arrives. Best of luck!
