I believe this qualifies as a "naked" bike. Had her for 7 years now.

SUMO MOTO! It is a 950 twin, so even though it is called a Super Moto it really is a misnomer, though it is pretty flickable for 450 lbs. And it has sport bike like performance and no wind protection, so I consider it naked. More so than some of these others with half-farings and actual windshields added on to once naked bikes, then it isn't naked anymore.

3/4ths of the posts are bikes with windshields mounted on them.

Yeah, to me a naked bike means no mini-fairing and no windscreen. Bikes with those things should be called "G-Stringers."

It doesn't hurt mine either, other than when they are just sitting in the garage. A while ago I was told the best modification you can make to a bike is to add miles to the odometer.

Just noticed that your KTM has a small headlight fairing, so why did you bother posting in the 'naked' thread ?
Especially considering your definition of naked.

Naked bikes I've had:

Honda 750 Sabre
Honda CB175
Honda Nighthawk 750
2 Suzuki DR650s
Yamaha XT250

I also had two 1st-gen FZ1s, but I never understood how people could call the FZ-1 "naked". I call what it has a half fairing. Same with the Bandit 1250.

This headlight shroud on the XT couldn't possibly exclude the bike as anaked, could it??

Personally I classify my K1200R as a Fafnir.

Well, everyone else was at it with fly screens, so why not?

Headlight shroud? Maybe, but that front fender, definitely.
