It looks line an F800, so why not eliminate the waiting period and just buy one of those. I think the true nature of the Rally fairing has more to do with function over form. Protecting the navigation equipment seems to be the point with some added wind protection for the rider at speed. Some people like to pretend a run to the store is a Dakar stage and that is fine, but that "adventure" is ugly for the sake of being ugly I think
