Finally got the opportunity to do different style riding including enough highway speed (~75MPH).
The noise is better (less) than with the stock windscreen. There is also less wind on the helmet.I am 5'10" and when the windscreen is on high, I can choose to look through the windscreen for riding, so I get a lot of protection from it.

I am still surprised at how much curved it is. I may have preferred it a bit flatter like a Harley Road King windshield, but the current setup works for me.

Thanks,

I have that one on my shortlist. Do you have the clear or tinted version?
Is is stable at high speeds? I've seen some complaints that it wobbles quite a bit, causing some air turbulence.

Clear one. Ofcourse at 130 km/h and higher it wobbles a little. The construction is quiet high and not streamlined. For me its ok.

I've replied to this in this threat.
I'm absolutly happy with the Givi. Low noise, no vibration, hight protection.

I can report that the Calsci in size large is very noisy in both positions. Ugh.

NOTE!!!

I clicked on the link to Britannia Composites after posting this and they only have it for the 950/990. Someone will have to prod them to build one for the 1190!!!

I tried 4-5 windscreens on my 990 ADV. The only one that came remotely close to clean air in the cockpit was the Madstad. Lica, one of the Oso's from this ride report was testing another variant of this concept and it crash tested very well. I did not see any report on wind buffeting from him but these guys would ride through an active volcano if their tires wouldn't melt, so the wind buffeting may not be an issue for Lica. He reports in the post below, "finally finished and ready to order at" Britannia Composites.

This is MRA spoiler; works pretty well and is very adjustable.

And so it is again! We now have the new MadStad system for the KTM 1190 Adventure. Fully adjustable for height and angle, and we've moved the shield forward from the bike a bit so that we can scoop air underneath it to get rid of the turbulence-causing vacuum. Photos are on the web site and the system is available now. Nothing else compares, we guarantee it. You won't be able to use your stock shield, nor would you want to anyway. All those humps and bumps molded in disturb the airflow, they don't help it. Our shields are smooth and simple curvatures and are available in several tints. Check it out at madstad.com

How do I buy this system? There isn't a "add to cart" button that I can find. Maybe I'm blind.

Well i have tried the stock (1190 std) and the touring and the CalSci and then the stocker with a Puig spoiler. The best was the Stocker with the Puig spoiler. Then i got my Puig Touring screen and after a short ride with speeds up to 85 mph I can say it is the best by far. Smooth air and no noise, but i need to do some freeway time to be sure that this is it. So in the next few days i will do a freeway ride then report back.
