    Aurora Rally is slowly revealing the new 790 rally kit, this was posted today from their official account. Now to be completely honest, I have seen a sneak pic and the kit is the most beautiful 790 kit I have seen, utilizing the previous 450 rally fairing - as opposed to the Rebel kit that uses the last version. You are going to love it.

    I’m I correct that the 701 kit is north of $5k?

    I see they used the same top of the line technique for R&D as I did... :photog
    I bet my way is a tiny bit more cost effective.. and uglier I'm affraid :fpalm

    Aurora is an exceptional company.
    I had their kit on my 990 and the quality and design is second to none.

    Ive been waiting for the 790 version using the previous 450 parts.
    I think it will much more attractive than the Rebel kit.

    The 9XX kit wasnt even half that.
    Cost me 3k AU (about 2k USD)

    These don't appear to have reached the USA yet. I see posting from other countries with this model. I asked Revzilla, who has many other GIVI screens, they said they aren't available to Revzilla yet. Would like to be wrong. Seems as though this is the only highly rated device? I read this thread, bought the bike (unrelated as I wasn't really looking to be pummeled), discovered that at around 65 MPH buffeting OK, acceptable. As speed increases above there, the buffeting makes me more senseless. I'm 6'3", using the Arai XD-4.

    I added the MRA X-Creen Sport Variable Windscreen Spoiler to the stock shield with no noticeable improvement with stock windshield high or low. Have not tried different mirrors with this combination yet.

    I’m only 6’ 0”, but the buffeting is bad IMO. Tried the basic Amazon spoiler and it didn’t help, and tried the Puig screen, with and without spoiler. Nope. Need to get it in the FM.

    All I can say is that I sure hope that somebody finally got it right.

    Seems the only one that is anywhere close being decent is the Rebel X and maybe the MST. But, not many users so far. ... and $3k for the Rebel!

    It seems highly unlikely, but it would be nice if they made it compatible with the current light. Lose the headlight pod in favor of the tower, which has mounting locations/bracketry for the light module itself. That would make costs more bearable and not force you to shelve a pretty good light.

    Unfortunately theres no chance of it being compatible with the KTM RFR and screen and headlight assembly .
    But in saying that, I had the Aurora high beam option of the Baja Squadron Pro and at 42 watts of LED, it is an awesome high beam, I also had a 36 watt LED low beam and also excellent.

    Still probably a lot cheaper than the Rebel.
    But yeah.
