I found this random picture from the Diablo Superbike GPS app on the inter webs, of a top speed run on a 1200s that is -1 in front.
Small Shift Tech carbon fly screen to sorta tuck behind.
I assume. Since it's a random pic.

I hope an after market co will come up with a decent small fairing , style like the S4R .
Styled like but hopefully better. My S4RS fairing is flapping like a flag in a hurricane at 90 mph.

Thread from the dead.


157mph chasing GSXR1K. Held the GSXR up to 135-140mph, then the show was over. Still had room to go. I'd say somewhere around 165mph top speed?

I'm still getting comfortable with the bike so, the max speed I've reached to this day is 200 km/h in 6th gear in touring mode, normally my max speed in my trips is 180 km/h

IMHO, ( humble being the operative word here ), the fun of a Monster lives in the 50Mph~100Mph zone where the torque and pull is intoxicating.
For top end exhilaration, get a Panigale. The charm of the Monster is its "naked" bad-ass muscle bike look. IMHO.

If it's not on video, it didn't happen.
