A buddy just sent this link and it looks like a good alternative to windscreens. The pic shows a 24" I think but shorter screen are available.

Looks like a windshield from CHiPs...

That's the problem with the GRiSO...
That bike looks so great that it's hard to do functional things to it without fucking up its good looks.

I agree the pic of the 24" tall screen looks oversize and awkward.  But some other features like the lower fit make me think a shorter version pic is worth a look.

To date, I've seen only one screen I like and that MG medium screen is no longer available... unfortunately.

It's all so suggestive but I'm 5.7" so my head doesn't stick up that high.
Consequently, I don't need a tall windscreen... My GIVI 770 blocks enough air for me to be comfy all day at 80mph (or over still). Very Happy

New Marlin model screen from DART might work for some on a GRiSO.

I sent an inquiry to Dart with a pic of the now non-available MG touring screen to see if they could produce one similar. After reading about their manufacturing method, injection molding, I doubt this will fly as mold tooling would be large and costly. I guess that's one reason they make small screens.

It would be interesting to see if that Marlin model would clear the instrument pod on the GRiSO.

I have a Dart screen on my W800, and must admit it doesn't do too bad a job. Quality of the fittings is right up there with the best, although it is about 2 inches taller the my minuscule OEM Guzzi screen.

I received an email this morning from Steve at Dart indicating they are working on hardware for making the Marlin fit the GRiSO.

This looks promising... Parabellum looks to have a new sport fairing model called the Scout that looks better than the fugly touring version the OP listed that started this thread. Available with different size windscreens... expensive though. Dang! affraid

The GIVI A770 (and 750) was the best looking unit IMO...
The one that was on some V11 models is nice as well and still available from Guzzi.

We've got the Marlin out now. I may be biased, but I think it suits the bike really well:

Looks great Steve, providing even slightly better coverage than the original style I have had on my GRiSO for the last few months.  You may remember Jan, who persuaded you to do a fitting for the V7 Classic a few years ago, well the Classic has gone but she now has a dark screen on her newer V7 Stone.  On another tack, my rumour mill says you may be considering a fitting for the new Duc Scrambler - true or false?

I remember Jan very well! Indeed, I have much to thank her for - the V7 screen has been a runaway success. Please give her my regards if you see her.

Your information is correct about the Scrambler - I got one of the first to arrive in the UK and we should be launching our screen for it in the next week or two. It's a great bike - possibly a keeper.

Great looking screen! I have the Classic on my GRiSO now...can the Marlin screen be mounted to the Classic brackets? If so, is the Marlin screen available separately?
