Windshield Options Out There

So the new 790 Duke doesn't come with a windshield and you’re stuck up in the wind while riding on long stretches of empty road or highway. That will easily tire you out and rider ergonomics are relatively upright, so your torso gets the full brunt of it.
Are there any options out there yet? Or which aftermarket companies should we keep an eye on?

Haven't seen anything from Puig as yet but they're known for serving the KTM community. As soon as they come out with one I'll look into it. Always like their windscreen for the Duke 690

Gear4Motorcycles apparently do a fly screen for around £75. No idea what it's like... Cheers

Wouldn't want to blindly purchase a screen without pictures. I guess it'll be Puig for us once they release something for the 790 Duke. Shouldn't be too long if there's enough interest since it seems to be an essential piece of equipment to me.

Screen

Puig shows various screens for the 790Duke, with the New Generation Sport listed as "Under Development" which is reasonably encouraging.

Gear4Motorcycles lists two - a small fly screen and a touring screen (which also looks quite small, but probably helps remove some of the wind-tunnel effect above 70 / 80

Anyone seen any sign that Givi will fabricate their pannier rails for this one yet?

Cheers

Pretty sure it is now one of the power part options. Have both a fly screen and slightly larger windshield. Also carrier plate and 48L top box.

There's a windscreen and fly screen advertised as coming soon on this site. They both are priced around £75. No idea on the manufacturer or quality of the products though. They've also got a bunch of different accessories for the Duke that are already available.

Ah, looks like I will have to tint mine if i get from them. Never liked having clear visors even from an aesthetics point of view. These bikes just look a bit a weird to me without.

These are the two KTM PowerParts options:

Not sure on their availability though.
