As for putting a screen on a naked bike, that's my choice and would argue till I'm blue in the face about why I got a naked in the first place, because the 919 isn't just a 900RR with the plastic ripped off, it has all the right changes in all the right places.
Stock, it's good at everything, best at nothing.
Properly modified, it's best at everything!
My 919 has the honda fly screen. I think it makes some difference but it is minimal. I'm definitely going to put an adequate windshield on both my 919 and r1200r. I'm not overly concerned about the looks. I certainly don't want a barn door but a nice compromise between function and form. National cycle was my choice too.
