    Re: Hello!

    Thanks for your welcome. Sorry, I don't want N version really.
    Of course, R is very nice, but S can be more practical maybe. Do you have a problem with "aerodynamical noises" in helmet on R compared with S?

    Re: Hello!

    I recently got an S model and do not find the noise intrusive, compared to any other bikes I have recently had - you could always wear ear plugs, I personally do not use them. Brilliant sports tourer!

    Thanks for answer, Bruce!
    I think earplugs are not necessary on all of bikes, but this noise can be uncomfortable after some time of riding. So, thats the reason why I am looking for S version too. Btw. I hate earplugs.

    Have a nice day!
    IMO having both bikes, despite the fairing the S has an awfull lot of wind noise. Far worse at motoway speeds than the R. Wouldn't dream of riding mine without ear plugs and have tried all sorts of screens.
    Kawasaki didn't put much R&D into that fairing, just a quick fix to cash in on the Fazers and such like that were selling well at the time.
    Not dissing the bike, everyone knows I'm a long term S owner but apart from the headlight that fairing is budget.

    That explains it then

    Visor up at motorway speeds is no problem on mine but the screen cost a bloody fortune.

    Re: Hello!

    Its an MRA, very similar to the stock one but with a slight flip along the top edge.
