windscreen/cowl/flyscreen thing

I have seen a few designs for flyscreens for the Brute - most, to me, spoil the essential Tambo lines and the essence of the 'nakid' bike attitude - but and this is a big BUT, I do believe there is room for some kind of flyscreen to shield the instruments and smooth the airflow up and over the rider a bit - to that end I submit these two photos. Basically make a carbon instrument cluster cover and extend it up about 7 inches keeping the essential shape and design, but just extended. It woulkd shade the clocks and keep some airflow of the chest.

That's kind of cool - if it were carbon I might be interested - put a nice MV logo on it, could be nice. So who's going to produce it?

I like it. Carbon Fiber with MV logo would be awesome. If only I had some talent.

Hey, that is really cool! I agree with you on the lines being goofed up by those other screens. yours and that clear mock up I am sure everyone is familiar with look the best. I tbink I would actually like that part in ABS because I personally think carbon is tacky there. Cool stuff though, think you might be on to something
