Puig Naked New Generation Windscreen Honda CB500F 2013-2015
I bought this to avoid feeling like a sail at highway speeds (55-70). It works well for this purpose. I'm 6'2" and this pushes the wind up to my shoulders and provides a good zone to tuck into. In addition to being more comfortable for me, I can also tell the bike doesn't have to work as hard. Very nice for passing semis or other undesirables. Install was very easy. I bought the Light Smoke. I felt it was too light coming out of the box, but I think it matches the bike perfectly and doesn't impede my vision. I highly recommend this for anyone using the CB500F to commute.

A good solid fitting windscreen
You'll need a 6mm hex and 12mm wrench (box better) to install. Once installed looks like it could have been stock. I'm 6' and wind now is pushed to shoulders and upper chest/helmet. A bit louder on the helmet at freeway speed due to the additional wind flow. I got the smoke version. A couple shades lighter than expected but still happy with the look with the red/white 2015 version.

Great if you're short
I imagine that if you're a shorter rider this would be perfect. I'm 6'3" and this windscreen does a great job at pushing the wind off my chest. At highway speeds, a little tuck and you're in the wind free zone.
It looks pretty nice too.

Looks good and works!
This little wind shield is doing its job. I feel less pressure around my chest, However my shoulders and my head tend to get hit by the wind. Installing this thing was a pain, simply because i didn't have any wrenches at first. I like how it looks on the motorcycle!

Looks good on bike. Pushes wind to head and shoulders.

Cuts the wind a bit.
This windscreen works as expected, and along the other comments others have made. Although it doesn't cut all wind drag, it is sure better than nothing. The install was average, if you have another person to help it will makes things easier to install, because once you start unbolting, things start falling all over the place, etc.

Great addon to your naked bike.
I have a 2014 Honda CB500F ABS that I bought in the summer. It was great not having a windscreen during the warm days but not really fun on the highway at 65mph. It felt like I would almost blow off the bike if I let go.
This windscreen solved most of those issues. The windscreen shunts most of the wind off to the side. Any wind over the top hits me about right near my sternum (I'm 5'11" and 160). It has made my morning commute so much easier and nicer.
Installation was a bit problematic when undoing bolts and realigning things but not too much of a problem. I'd say anyone who has socket and Allen wrenches should be able to install with no problem. Just make sure everything is in place before tightening things down.
The only issue I have continuing is at low speeds (10-25mph), the screen wiggles with the engine and the wind and makes quite an annoying vibrating sound. I've installed the bumper to help mitigate the issue, and it did help, but didn't solve the problem entirely. It only happens at low speeds I've noticed.
Otherwise, it looks great on my bike (I got the Dark Smoke version) and I would recommend this.

Does what I wanted
Keeps the wind up a bit. I'm short so it hits right below helmet. So with no jacket, shirt collar gets whipped around and pulled down with the wind. No biggie. Overall great unit.
