The Original Givi Airflow (AF3105) is now available in The Netherlands €122,00 = $ 167,00). I get my Airflow next week. When I have it, I'll put a picture.

Madstadt and Different Windscreen

While I haven ridden a new DL1000 as of yet, I've sat my derrière on a few. My take on the new design is while it isn't a barn-burner, it is an improvement of sorts. One thing I do see that I would've liked different is for a little more wind protection from the fairing/windscreen combination. Perhaps I'll get to take a test ride soon and find the design to be better at this than it appears to be in a static state.

In any event, I'll stick with my long time rule of not buying the first model year of a new design.

I've mentioned in another thread that the standard screen and 'fairing' provide good protection from the weather, even including the hands (no guards yet).

I confirmed that today when I mounted my camera on a Ram mount from the clutch master cylinder. The microphone hardly picked up any wind noise, unlike when helmet mounted, so the air is being deflected quite effectively.

I agree but I think some people mistake wind noise for buffeting so they end end looking thru a windshield that looks like it came off a 52 Buick

I agree also.
I had a chance to test ride the new Vee. I am 6'2".
There was some wind noise, not bad and definatelly non of that "head in a paint shaker" business that I had with my 08 Wee when I first got it.
Fixed at first by removing the screen entirely and then later adding a Madstad and Vstream screen. Wind noise is NOT buffeting.

I went a stage further and swung the camera in so that it was behind the screen. NO wind noise at all and all I could hear was the motor. So with what I've found with the deflection of rain/showers, I reckon the screen does a pretty good job. As mentioned above, a bit of wind noise around the helmet is not buffet.

I agree with the posters above. My '11 Wee did have buffeting, and the Givi adjustable windshield took care of that perfectly. My '14 Vee2 gives me NO buffeting. I am 5'8" tall with a 29"+ inseam. It does however, give me great air circulating around my chest region that is refreshing!. I do not believe I will need any aftermarket windshields.
