Looks to me like it's seriously lacking air flow cutouts.

I questioned the manufacture about the Rad guard I bought as well. He rides in Thailand where it is 40* C with the rad guard and skid plate. He has had no overheating issues at all.

Put mine on a couple of days ago, looks like good protection for what I want. Fitting was a bit fiddly, I thought the rear bracket would have the nuts welded to it to enable easier fitting, but not so. U bolt setup for the front is also fiddly, with washers, spring washers and nuts to put on with limited room. Oil and filter changes will be a bit of a pain, but no more than cleaning/lubing the chain without a centrter stand.
