So far nobody has developed a good looking screen for the 790 that actually blocks the wind without any buffeting. On a long trip with lots of highway speeds, functional beats good looking. The 790 S screen worked very well on my R, but would slap me in the face off-road. The Rade’s Garage screen looks good, plenty of room to mount electronic, blocks airflow at chest level, but has high speed buffeting at helmet level.

Who cares about looks?
I guess some people do.

For me, I would like a screen that looks good but to me, an enduro or 790 bike is a utility and therefore need not look very nice. I can live with an ugly screen the same way I can live with ugly flip flops.
I'd like a nice screen/flip flop pair but I won't sacrifice utility if it doesn't look nice.

Also, I am 188 cm with a big head - I would prefer to be shielded from the wind haha

R/G update. I took off the 2 lower wind deflectors under the headlight and it significantly cleaned up the air at head level. Doesn’t make sense, but it works. There is still some buffeting, but I estimate removing the deflectors cut the buffeting at least by half. And I like the look without the lower deflectors. I haven’t rode in rain yet, but hear without the lower deflectors rain will hit your lap, so they may go back on.

"Is anyone with this bike disappointed with the windscreen ?"

Disappointed? I'll say. I'm 5'7" tall and have the standard model. My head gets tossed around like a bobble head doll in a car being driven by a drunk. I stood on my pegs at 75 mph and it was sooo much quieter and pleasant. I'm actually considering just removing the windscreen all together. I also wondering if adding one of those small extension things that Puig make to the top would help. I'm interested in a solution, that's for sure.

I have the exact same issue on the S at your height. I was getting tossed around so much, I felt like throwing up. What did you end up doing to solve it?
