I think prices are in our worthless Canadian money. You could probably buy one right now for the price of a case of beer!

Our dollar is at a 13 year low.

Unfortunately, the price is stated as $600 in USD on their website. Not cheap...but it looks like a quality part.

I haven't had it out for testing yet, but it does seem flawless. Very sturdy too.

My riding closet includes Shoei and Sidi gear. It's quite rare for me to balk at pricing. I'll do so here. The Lynx R fairing looks brilliant, but the USD shipped price is approximately equal to 13% of the net cost of my 2015 DR650. At that price point, I'd need the promise of something more robust than "composite materials". I'd guess this explains why the guys who bodge rallye-style panels together in their garage favor the use of aluminum to the extent possible. Still, I'm glad that companies like B.C. Ltd. are making an effort to serve our market. I've probably purchased an acce$$ory or two that other guys would pass off as too pricey for what it is.

I really want one of these.

I *REALLY* effin' want one of these.

It might be the BMW GS owner in me bubbling forth, but the notion of having proper protection when on the highway, much better lighting than stock (at a lower wattage), as well as a dashboard to slap all the crap that I don't really need but have to have because of my chronic farkleitis... as well as looking, quite frankly, badass....

But yeesh. That price tag.

I think I'm actually going to get rid of it. I'm tall and it seems to cause a lot of buffeting around my head no matter what position the windscreen is in. Now i just need to find a white factory headlight cowl in Canada. Been looking for a long time and can't seem to find one.
