just got my new 2017 V-Strom 2 days ago. After 350km even on the highway I can safely say that the windscreen discussion will be very different to the recent one.
The buffeting of the 2016 which resulted in terrible headshaking is totally gone. I'm 6ft with an inseam of 34 and drive the lowest windscreen position- unfortunately can' t yet change the angle of the windscreen - it is fixed, even the dealer doesn't know why .
The airflow hits me at my shoulders which off course results in some noise , which is well treated by earplugs. Pretty good!
