National Cycle VStream Sport Windscreen Yamaha FJR1300 2013-2016
I chose the VStream Sport for my 2015 FJR1300ES because I wanted a short screen to maximize cooling flow in the summer time. What I got was that plus much less buffeting throughout the range of screen height settings.
Although the VStream is the same height as the stock windscreen it is about 2 inches wider at the top. That, combined with a subtle change in curvature really seems to help smooth the airflow. When riding with the screen fully lowered, I now get a smooth airflow to my helmet and torso with much less buffeting than the stock screen. If it's cooler I ride with it extended to ~ 75% full height. This results in a calm space of dead air except for clean flow up near the top of my helmet. Even fully raised my helmet is still in the flow, it's noticeably quieter but still not comfortable to cruise with the visor up. If I put my hand out adjacent to my helmet I find there is about a 6-inch diameter pocket of buffeting about even with the top of my visor. Apparently the VStream carves out a nice path of smooth flow that's just a bit over one Arai (size L) wide. Nicely done!
I should note that I'm 6' 2". If I wanted to endlessly drone on the superslab I might want a taller version of the screen to achieve a fully enclosing bubble of calm air. For my purpose for hot weather riding the smoother airflow for all windshield settings is a great solution.
My only complaint is the etched in VStream logo on the screen. It's as large as the Yamaha logo badges on the fuel tank. I expect someone's going to come up to me and ask how long VStream has been making motorcycles.
On yeah; beauty's in the eye of the beholder but I think the Dark Smoke color goes very well with the Liquid Graphite color of the 2015 FJR.

This windscreen is great. It looks sexy and creates a nice bubble, I'm 6' 6'' and that's hard for me to come by. Can't attest to the durability because I just got it.

Looks and fits great!! But like others would have preferred that their logo on the front wasn't etched into the windscreen. They aren't paying me to advertise their products and if I buy it it's now mine.

This is my first National City windscreen and I'm really impressed with the heavy-duty quality of this screen. The tint & polish is beautiful and it's just what I wanted in being the same approximate size as the stock Yamaha version.
The installation instructions are next to useless, so you'll have to blunder around on your own, trying to figure how to get your old screen off, but once you notice the little screws underneath the old screen mount, the old screen will come-off with a but of prodding, That being figured-out, the new one installs in 5 minutes.
One thing I didn't care for, was instead of being just a sticker, the manufacturer's logo is sand-blasted on the front of the screen. I usually peel-off the manufacturer's logos and advertisements, but you can't with this screen. It's not really obtrusive, but I don't feel the need to be a billboard for the aftermarket either. It's there, live with it...

This is exactly what I wanted
Looks great on my 2013 FJR. Love the dark tint. Although I do ride at night. It's basically the same size/height, as the stock windscreen, just wider at the top so I can still see over it especially at night. Also I can move more freely in the cockpit without the wind blowing my helmet all around.
