I am going into the local bike shop today where there is a DR set up with the new fairing. When I first saw it (as per photos in page 1) it looked crap. But once painted and stickered up its actually not to bad.

If the bike is there, I will get some pics.

Likey,likey!
Just gotta remember the Aussie Postman needs paying in gold bars.I might wait until
i'm down there again before i'd concider such a thing,but i am interested.(think of the cost of a new
DR650-$4800 in MN at present- opposed to a KTM 690,and the Suzuki is more reliable!).
Other problem is that their (Aus.) currency is so strong,while the damn Socialists(Labour) 'bombed' ours,
and the O'man doing the same in the US running his printing presses 24/7,exports are so expensive!
This development has given me something to think about,DR's amaze me,they've nearly been out for
17yrs and the good stuffs just arriving (Acerbis is another one!).

I am very impressed and glad to see it on the market. If I hadn't just spent dozens of hours and a few hundred dollars fabing my own I would be buying on of these.

I asked Safari via their facebook page when their website was going to be updated with all the details of the new tank and fairing seeing as pics have been on the net for months.

Their response was that the website would be updated in about a week or so, that was about a week ago.

Don't hold your breath waiting for the website to update.
Mark from team moto Virginia has been running one for a while now with good results.

I was looking at this yesterday when I was down there dropping of the old DR for some work...it looks nice and gives a lot of room behind the screen for gadgets....and its not overly high.

Just not liking having to spend the close on $1100 to get the set up..

I've heard this a few times now from people.
If you add the cost of a tank to the cost of a screen the fairing costs $3-400.
I'm not sure how much people think they should pay for a full fairing set up.
This isn't anything against anyone in particular but I'm starting to think that DR riders are bigger tight asses than KLR owners.
Considering that you buy the tank and fairing set up, and have it completely sorted in an afternoon, I think it's pretty good.
As much as I like it though, I wish there was a way to retro fit it to the current tank. I can see why that isn't possible given the extra tank thickness where the fairing mounts so I guess I'll just keep bumbling along with my bar setup.
