That actually looks OK, and doesn't detract from the naked look t all. Darker smoke would disguise the speedo and cables too.
Kind of just what I said about the Ducati one, sell it smoked and then people could buy the yellow or whatever graphics to suit.

Great pictures. Can't wait to hear your comments, good and bad, of the new screen. When you post, please include your height, and if you have the stock seat or the optional lower one.
Got to point out these are pics from their FB account and I do not have my scrambler yet. Sorry should have said

The more I look the more I like but am holding off for the Barracuda and Puig offerings

I wonder how effective it is.
It works well. The riding position of the Scrambler spreads the arms wide, and presents the body like a parachute to the wind. The flyscreen works in two ways: firstly, it smooths the air flowing over the instruments and top yoke, which normally is quite a turbulent area; secondly, the screen produces a cone of still air behind it, which relieves the rider’s torso of wind pressure. This is enough to relieve the arms, and reduce the feeling of ‘hanging on’.

The effectiveness depends to some extent on the rider and what their expectations are, but my experience is that the standard bike is hard work at 70mph. With the flyscreen, I'm riding at 80-85mph pretty comfortably with an open-face helmet. And let's face it, if you want to cruise much faster than that over distance, you've probably got the wrong bike!
