You need a wheel faring or to re-do the breaklines so they do not get caught in the front wheel!!

Rally bikes usually use a low fender anyway, but yea, it needs one!

Hmmmmm....

Feedback wise:

Plus
- Plenty of room for nav roller and other "Rally" gear.
- Gives the F800 a proper "Rally" look
- Seems to allow for a high mount mud guard without the "patchwork" look of the standard with high mount.


Minus
- how do I see around the fairing? It's stating the obvious, but it's designed for Rally Bikes, so the average rider wont be buying one for the "looks" because he'll spend most of the day standing to see.



Is there any plan to make a transparent windshield section? It's purely hypothetical, as I can't sit on it and look forward, but it looks as though it's so high that at 5'11" I'd have to stand pretty much all the time to have any track view.

Or is this purely an option for the guys that want to Rally an F800 (they'll have their work cut out for them)?

Hello guys
The version you see in the picture is destined to participate in fairs, races, etc. so do not need to have a transparent dome.
For the kit that is sold will be available, on request of the customer, a transparent dome to be inserted in the front to increase visibility for road use / tourism (to be specified in the order).
Will soon be available as an optional support navigator / road book, GPS, etc.. Billet CNC.

The front can be removed to insert the KIT Enduro consists of template enduro headlight, fender top, etc..
also this accessory will soon be put online.

Ah, very good. Thank you.

Looking forward to it all.

Will the fairing match up to a 20 litre Touratech tank?

Our fairing (MST) can not be fitted with the Touratech tank.
Will be available from our tanks side mount instead of the sides of our hull for those who want to increase the autonomy .....

Maybe someone here with photoshop can add a high fender and some knobby tires to get a better idea of how this kit would really look.

Anyone?

Photoshop ... no need .... this is the first prototype made a few months ago ....

.... But now the hull is lower than the front, then the result is slightly different

not really in the market for something like this personally, but I like the top of the prototype much more than the first photo's you posted.
