Givi A755 windscreen on 919--what do you think?

I'm going touring on the 919 in May-June this year, and think I'll need something a bit bigger than my Hondaline windscreen for many long days in the saddle and in the wind.

What do those of you who have the Givi A755 think of it? It looks a bit sporty, and as if it would offer decent wind protection. If you're thinking of selling yours, too, let me know.

Smile Givi wind screen

Hello first I love the look of this on the bike however for block the wind it does not seem to block as much as I expected being a 45 years old I would like to have more blockage than wind but to answer your question best it is great looking excellent to ride during warmer weather 60 or higher and it is not for salegood luck Joe

I have one. It does a pretty good job of blocking the wind. Much better than the Honda screen. I can tella difference after taking it off. I would say you cant go wrong getting one.

It'll be for summer riding, and as I'm already accustomed to riding with near-zero wind protection, it sounds as if the Givi might be fine.

Thanks for the feedback.

I have a 755 that I use in spring / fall. In the heat of summer, I swap to a small aluminum piece that uses the same brackets.
The 755 sheds a diecent amount of wind, you'll like it.

I plan to die young, as late as possible.

I've got both the Honda Screen and the 755. The GIVI deflects wind better and I use it in the cooler temps of the spring and fall and for longer rides. The down side for both screens is the wind noise. With ear protection both are ok.
For short rides and my commute to work in the heat of the summer I prefer no screen at all.

I've got one and like it. It seems to move the air off yout torso and puts it at helmet level which does create some noise. No buffeting. That is if you're 6' tall and running stock bars. When I had the Renthals on the air was more over the top. I think it's the best looking of the larger windscreens available. Not perfect, but better than naked if you're spending time in the wind. When I toured without it the air on my chest at speed made me hang on to the bars tighter which induced fatigue.

I think that I'd be hunting down something in plain ol' black, as nemogreen would be tough to find, sadly.

I'm 5'6" after a good day at the chiropractor, so I doubt I'll get too much buffeting. Found a person selling one on the ducati monster site, so I think I'm set--thanks, y'all.
