How good is the screen at keeping the wind off of you?
Worth getting?

Thanks.
It's not worth it (it's PS).
It's look nice but only thing it do is "protecting" GPS and make an awful whirls.
I am 186 cm tall and I get wind "in my neck". 90-100 km/h is the limit for "normal" riding.

I am interested too. Bike arrives in a couple weeks and I ordered the screen for it. I am hoping it works as good as the flyscreen on my Yam WR250R. It's about the same size and that one works remarkably well on the highway at any speed. The only place I get some wind blast is my shoulders and chin bar. The helmet rides in clean air. Very comfy.

I am also curious about the fuel range. I was hoping to avoid RR tanks, but I need about 190 miles range.

I have the same screen and what you describe with your WR250R screen is exactly how I would say it performs. You should be happy with it IMO.

You won't make 190 without extra fuel capacity for sure.

You're a little over 6' tall.
I'm 5'8", so it might be ok for me.
Thanks for the info.

You will average about 50 mpg, about 150 miles to the tank from my experience.

I was afraid of that, but was hoping the new KTM promotional data meant about 55mpg.

We are on a vacation up in the mountains, driving around on frozen snowmobiletracks.


Sometimes the snowmobiletracks are a little softer than they appear to be.
