MRA Windshield- Race or Touring?

I'm considering buying 1 of the MRA windshields for my 2018 naked but am not sure if I should get the Race or the Touring. Has anyone gotten 1 and then ordered the other? I'm 5'7" btw.

Pic of both attached. Race at the top.

Yep I've got both but only tried the touring version at the moment and find it ok.

Thanks Tony assuming that it's the same mounting bracket and therefore an easy swap, would you mind trying the race in comparison at highway speeds??

I was just looking at that pic I posted and the touring has less black area at the bottom if I wanted to tuck behind it and be able to see through it. Prefer that.

The wind noise doesn't bother me to be honest. I just want less of a wind blast when doing highway runs.

I have the light smoke touring. I'm 5'5" and it takes all the wind blast off my chest at freeway speeds. I'm sure it increases noise but I wear ear plugs. Helmet doesn't buffet.

If I had to do it again, I'd probably go for the race because I think it looks better and I'm tempted to cut mine down. Otherwise, no complaints and I do like the cockpit view which looks a bit like a proper sportbike.

Thanks Dave … that touring does look bigger than I thought it would and appearance does matter to me as well.

I bought mine on impulse immediately after a highway cruise which felt so uncomfortable that I was looking for the biggest windscreen I could find. Anyone want to trade their race for my touring, let me know.
