Fabbri Gen-X regular screen vs. touring screen

Recommended Posts

stepside4x4
Well, I have had the bike for the first 600 miles, and have determined that a windscreen is needed for highway riding. So I looked over the different options and I like what Fabbri has to offer with eh Gen-x but I can't decide between their two versions. Has anyone purchased the touring version of this screen? If so, what do you think of it? Both have a great look, my only worry with the smaller one is that it wouldn't cut the wind enough.

I have the touring version and I am very happy with it. I was in the same position you are about choosing between the 2. Then I thought to myself, if I want to block the wind why not get the larger version... It doesn't eliminate the wind blast. But it gets it off your chest and makes the bike easier to ride at highway speeds for longer distances. Also, if you have a lower rise bar you can tuck easily behind the screen to virtually elminate the wind blast for as long as you are comfortable in that tuck position. Hope this helps.

I started with the sport version, and have now ended up with the touring version. It does make the bike more comfortable to ride on the highway for longer rides at those speeds. And i think it still looks great too!

Haha. Literally just ordered the touring version in Satin black last night. Don't really like the looks of any windscreens, but I felt like this one in the touring edition/ satin black was the best mixture of function/ bad ass looks, kind of. Should hopefully not take away from the naked/ stealth them. Going to try it out on some longer rides coming up, but mainly got it for my California to Alaska ride. Will probably take the screen off whenever Im home riding around town.

For this of you that have ordered the touring version, could you take some pictures and upload them so I can see more how it looks?

Sorry for the poor lighting, but I have the touring screen and couldn't be happier. It's tall enough to actually make a difference on the highway but but ridiculous looking.

I went with the touring model as well, still waiting on the payment email from PJ's, placed the order on the 25th and still nothing :\\
 
Doesn't help they're the only US distributor for them.

Thanks for all the pictures guys, I think I have definitely decided on the touring version! Any ideas as to why you haven't had the payment email fooschnickens? Has anyone had any other problems with this distributor?

Good choice; if you're looking to block wind the smaller version won't help. I bought it for looks and that's all it's good for.

Must have had the old header image cached in my browser, I definitely would have noticed that message. No harm, really. It's been raining here so much I wouldn't have missed it not being installed :P
