Bug screen question

i know that i am opening a can of worms but i have been looking at a bug screen for my 919 and have read a ton posts and looked around at my options.
i found one that i fell in love with but couldnt find out much of anything about it.
i pulled this picture from the internet and was wondering if anyone knows anything about it. if i can purchase one or if it was a custom job.

I think that one is a Givi, but not the A755. Not sure what number it is though.

@rmb... Don't think it's the A770. There is a not that it 'Does not fit Honda 919.'

That's the first one that I have liked. I hope someone knows what it is. The Givi pics don't look quite right.

i agree there are slight differences in all of them. so i dont think that it is a Givi.
i am open for more suggestions if anyone has more ideas.

They all seem pretty nice to me but the original you posted is pretty damn sweet.

I would check the Hornet's nest for options since I believe that's a UK Hornet. They have a lot more choices over there, but the price to ship to US may be a deal breaker.

I have spent about three hours searching all over the web with no luck. The closest that I have found is the Givi 240N902, but there are significant differences around the windowed portion (three bolts per side in the picture) and how it looks just above the headlight (the Givi has a larger space below the windowed portion). Good picture of it in this fitting kit pdf:

Maybe an Italian bike, the sticker on the bike says: CarbonVani // Componenti , accessori ,parti in fibra di carbonio per moto italiane MV Agusta e Ducati - Carbon fibre parts for MV Agusta and Ducati motorbikes-Carbonvani.com
So maybe the screen was never meant to be sitting on a 919, but a Duc Monster !?
Not the same screen, but take a look here : HONDA HORNET900 Fairing/Cowl for sale
Good luck

I cut the brackets off of the monster windscreen (since they're molded on). Order the brackets for the Givi windscreen (since they're made to fit the 919). Drilled two holes in the top of the monsters windscreen. Added some rubber plugs in the bottom bracket holes (so that there are no vibrations) And there you have it.

Wow! Good work!

It's a little pricey, but definitely the nicest screen I have seen for the 919.

Knowing I'm no woman's dream - certainly not my own when it comes to motorcycle budget, even after she got her own bike - this is literally the last complete LeoVince system available for 919!
I've searched everywhere - this is the only and last I can find ........
