No,,, fwiw: mine had one on it when I bought it, one of the 1st things I changed as it was too turbulent for me.

 My opinion would be the MRA VarioTouringScreen or possibly GIVI Airflow are both better choices. I also tried the GIVI, it was better than the others I'd tried. I think it would work better if you got longer bolts and added spacers for a wider gap between the 2 layers of the GIVI.  Currently have a custom Madstad with a copy of the clamp-on xcreen on top.

Depends what year your bike is ?? You really need to state what model /year you have  :028:

Think they ship from Germany btw (?). Not seen any in UK.

Thanks for the replies - Ive got a Versys 1000 GT 2016

Im 65 so looking for as high a shield as I can get as current stock shield gives me a lot of buffeting above 70mph and not good at all.

Read some good reviews of the VStream but open to other suggestions. Im gonna go check out the other 2 suggestions now

Thanks again

The Givi Air is not the best looking screen, but Ive found it to the best one for me.

I have noticed that it has to be in two positions depending if I have the topbox on or not. Most of the time the topbox is on and I have to have it a bit higher.
What if the whole world farted at once?

Couple shots of the VStream and the Madstad on my 2016, The Madstad is their 24" I believe, it's 24" top to lowest part, widened 3" with a deflector off Amazon. At 5'11"  and the shield at the lowest position, I'm barely looking over the deflector. (need to shorten the shield a couple inches,,,) I'd also like a better quality deflector and I'd like it down a bit and spaced out more for a larger gap between them. Then it might be perfect.

Jakeyjak - also have a look at the Puig touring screen - one of the most popular on the MK2 - also the Givi screen that "Ditchburn12" currently has for sale is quite tall as well.

Fo me the Air flow is the best compromise. You can look over the screen and it's really protecting when you get the good adjustment,

I can't stand looking up from thru the front shield

Many thanks to all for your thoughts on this - shipping and tax for the VStream made it not worth it when not 100% certain

Have gone for the Puig Tourer which is 13cm taller than stock screen so hoping it will make it more bearable to ride.. Well see !!!
