Hello, I am 6 foot 1 I currently ride a 2013 Ducati Diavel and I am thinking of switching to a 1000. How is the wind at highway speeds, would the bikini fairing offer much more protection and how well would I fit on one of these at my height? I do not have an opportunity to ride one until late August when they are released in Canada. Any and all thoughts would be appreciated.


Thanks Roddie

I wonder if the windscreen that's on the 1000F would fit on the naked 1000???

As Killjoy says wind isn't an issue for me till it goes over 80.
At 120 it gets a bit difficult to sit up but I'm not using this bike
to set speed records, 70-80 on Motorways is quite enjoyable.

Stromer, it would fit if you had the rest of the fairing to go with it...
I have seen a few aftermarket tall screens which don't look too shabby.
Someone here has posted a pic of one on his bike.
