New Zero Gravity wind screens for Sprint GT

Zero Gravity is just a few miles from my place. I had been working with them for some alternative windscreen applications for the Sprint GT. The end result turned out really great, so they opted to take some photographs of my bike with the 3 different screens in place....here a few pictures for those interested:

So, are these now available or just prototypes? I don't see them on their website.

That's a good question....I'll ask them.

I rode with the Sport Touring screen (I'm 6'1" w/33" inseam) and it was very good at keeping the wind off my head....some shoulder wind, but over all good wind protection. I'm waiting for them to finish up the Double Bubble as that's the one I think I'll use the most (they've gone through a couple of prototypes and are still putting final touches on it). The ST screen though will be perfect for longer rides and trips.

I'm certainly interested as I'm 6'4" and would like more wind protection. If possible a comparison of the double bubble and the sport touring wind protection would be helpful.

crazy. i just called them YESTERDAY and they told me they had no idea when these would be ready. gentleman told me to call back in "a month or two".

i'm ready to pull the trigger right now. the eagle screen grand touring looks awesome, but it's a hassle to get from australia.

I've got a 2 week trip planned for 3 weeks from now and would LOVE the touring screen. I want, I want, I want.
Givi is making one now that looks comparable to the double bubble that I may just have to get.

The Sport Tourer screen on my bike took some time to develop and I definitely know they are very busy and will start production on the new screens sometime in the near future....but haven't established a production date yet. That's about all I can tell you at this time.

The pictures I posted may or may not be used once production starts. I just wanted to let everyone know that ZG was getting ready to produce a screen for the GT and thought everyone might appreciate seeing what they would look like. Personally I've used their products in the past, going back to an old '91 Honda CBR1000 (which they made a tall screen for me) when they were located in Agoura. It's a great company with a bunch of people that are really nice and friendly.....I've never been disappointed

P.S.
The Sport Tourer screen is about 3 1/2 inches taller than the stock screen.

I'm ready for the Sport Tour Screen. It would be nice to have one before the Indy MotoGP in mid-August
