National Cycle VStream Sport Touring Windscreen Yamaha Super Tenere 2010-2013
I have a 2012 Super Tenere and love the bike. But, I have battled helmet buffeting from day one. Last year, I purchased a Madstad adjustable windshield bracket. It helped. But only a little. Bear in mind, I use an XD-4 for a helmet which doesn't help with the buffeting either. I knew that I needed a new windshield, but there were so many choices. And the one definite thing I got from the reviews is that no one windshield is going to make everyone happy. There are too many variables. Helmet type, rider height, etc. After all my research, I decided on the Vstream. The design seemed to make sense. Plus I liked that it was made from polycarbonate. I am 5'10"with a 32" inseam, so I ordered the Sport Touring model (mid height). I have used it for about a week now and absolutely love it! It seems like I have a different bike. Buffeting is almost completely gone. I only get a little at high speed. And oddly, I seem to get more air in the vents of my helmet now. I no longer use the Madstad bracket and I don't think I'll be putting it back on any time soon. I forgot to mention that the shield looks beautiful. Very nice quality! Much heavier than the OE. The "V" design makes it very strong and also fits with the lines of the bike nicely. The polycarbonate gives it a slight grey tint which I think takes away that cheap, clear plastic look of the OE one. Hope this helps other Super Tenere owners make the right decision for a new windshield.

good quality, excellent fit, better wind protection than the stock windscreen.

Acts like magnifying glass under the sun, melts your instrument panel on the top.
I was excited to install this screen on my 2013 XTZ 1200 Tenere, but turned out to be disappointed when after a few week, found out it acts like a magnifying glass under the sun (the radius of the shield) and when you park your bike it melts the top of your instrument cluster and the cover front of it. (250-300$ damage) .Now i have a 200$ dollar shield sitting in my garage and a damaged bike. National cycle should have put some black shading (coating ) on the bottom half of the screen to prevent the sun going trough it.

Not exactly the same for the 2015 Super Tenere
Be forewarned, this is not an exact bolt on replacement for the 2015 model. The bolt holes do not match the adjustable windscreen carriage on the 2015 model. Compare yours very closely to the picture shown on the website. You can either leave off the carriage, but doing so means you lose the nice little bar going across the top of your current setup or you can leave off the adjusters. I left off the adjusters and mounted it directly to what I would call the older mounting bracket with the carriage underneath.
I have to say though that the windshield is great. Much larger and really stops the wind noise and slight buffering from the stock shield.

This windscreen is a real improvement over the stock unit.
I love my new Super Tenere, but the stock windscreen really didn't provide much protection and was really noisy. The new V Stream windscreen is a great improvement. I can still see over the top and there is just the right amount of wind on the top of my helmet. The ride is much quieter. This is one really great upgrade to a bike that really doesn't need any other improvements.

Had this make on my FJR1300
Ease of installation, and great optical clarity. I am 5' 10", and this cuts down buffeting considerably vs. the stock windscreen. I had a Vstream on my last bike, and it stayed virtually scratch-free for 4 years. Highly recommended.

Best Windscreen I have ever used!
I have owned and ridden dozens of motorcycles for more than thirty years. My experience with windscreens has been that anything larger than a flyscreen was almost always either way too noisy or had too much buffeting. The stock windscreen on my 2013 Yamaha Super Tenere caused too much helmet buffeting at anything over 50 miles per hour for my 5'10" height. After researching and reading countless reviews of replacement windscreens I decided to give the Vstream sport touring windscreen a try. With the windscreen in the high position and the seat in the low position I am getting zero helmet buffeting and a very quiet ride! The is a really great windscreen at a reasonable price.

A very good windshield
I've riden 3000 km with this shield and like it very much. I also have the Yamaha winglets and with both I get very good air management. It does block to much air in very hot conditions, not something I get to ride in often!
