the racing versions are supposed to be able to hold a certain amount of fluid (a gallon?) to prevent a leak from getting all over the track.
the "chin spoiler" ones are mostly just cosmetic.

From the online S4 Fogarty brochure:

"Essential accessory when riding fast. Ensures a heavier load on the front trail of your bike that allows improving its stability and handling. A must for riding your bike on a track."

Beside, they look cool... :)

Q: would a short "cosmetic" belly pan fit with a DP center stand? I can't get rid of the center stand for practical reasons (urban rider - frequent stops). But I'd sure like to add some looks.

I know, I know... it's so bmw-ish :-[ , that's why I'm thinking to spice up the rosso looks, with a tiny red belly pan. I saw one in the DP catalogue #979300229.
Which one is the roadracing one?
Am I going to get a sticker shock?

I personally don't like the idea of putting more plastic on a bike that was designed to be naked. If you are gonna buy a bellypan, and a windshield etc, maybe selling the monster and getting a 996 would be a better choice?
