    I reached out to Rebel X Sports asking if they would consider developing a style windshield to fit standard setup (no nav tower).
    Response is below;

    Rebel X Sports
    Its definitely something we are considering but we will be able to work on it only once we completed all the 2020 motorbikes kits for the different brands. We totally understand that there is a need for a new windshield that other than making the bike look nicer also helps the airflow while riding. We really appreciate your compliments and we hope to have the chance to start working on a windshield kit further on this year .

    That’s positive!

    Often seen on Dakar bikes when running high fender as well.
    The RR-UK pictures are not mine just grabbed them as an example!

    I am far from the ability to not drop the bike onto the handlebar end on an off pavement trail. Afraid I would need to carry spare levers and bar end mirrors with that set up.

    The mirrors can fold in for off-road riding. And even though the visibility is not as good as when they are folded out, you can still see behind you.

    Are you using the Rade sat nav mount there or is that Vanasche?

    Vanasche mount. Its solid. Got word my AXP plate has finally arrived in country, suspension next, then de-cat, air box, tune.

    The 15 T front, 45 T rear gearing with real dirt wheels + PP seat has transformed the bike. Loving it now.

    Stock is 16-45, 6 foot, and works above hwy speed. That mirror set up got rid of lot of buffeting, Rade screen tidy up the rest.

    Need Alongat to ship out the headstraights, the front looks like it wants to shake itself to pieces when you are having half a go in the bush.

    Do you mean you are not getting any buffeting?
    How tall are you?
    My RG screen causes buffeting from about 80km/h. I will remove my mirrors and check if the buffeting is sorted.
