Observe, the stock "windshield" of the 390 Duke. Basically non-existent, as is the style in naked bikes. Wanting to feel a little less like I'll fly off without a death grip on the handlebars above 60 I started looking for something else. Turns out KTM makes a bolt on that is
Yeah, I was skeptical too. But the reviews unanimously declared that it made a noticeable difference. Considering it was $40 vs $120 for the only other one I could find and looked better I gave it a shot.
You know what? This shit does work. Seems to deflect just enough upward and to the sides to make higher speeds much more bearable.

@alfalfa yep. ppl are always amazed at it. Part of the reasons I love the double bubbles my bikes have one then. I might go to the 'corsa' for my next one

@alfalfa just enough to take the wind off your chest makes riding a lot more comfortable.

@alfalfa Decades ago, I stuck on some airflow deflectors made by SAENG onto the tiny windshield of my Suzuki. The windshield took the wind off my chest and the diverter took the airflow over my helmet.
Back to your title, the acronym was Surface Aerodynamic Engineering or something.
