wind protection question

can anyone comment on the wind protection of the gen 3's compared to gen 1 or 2's ? When I look at pictures of gen 1 and 2's compared the 3's it looks like a fair amount more coverage up front.

I've ridden a couple Gen1 bikes and I own a Gen 3, but they all had different windshields so I don't think I can make a fair comparison. I will tell you that my Gen 3 with Givi Airflow by FAR has the best wind protection of any of the V-stroms I've ridden. And, since the Gen 3 has slimmer body work, I get a nice cool breeze on my torso and arms while everything is super quiet at my head. I don't remember the Gen 1 bikes putting air on my middle as well. This is a big deal in the humid/hot south.
