Puig Touring Windscreen Honda CB500X 2013-2015
Great over stock
This product came well packaged, had bubble wrap in the box and the shield in its own foam wrap. there were no scratches or deformities.
As for performance, I love this. I am 6ft 0, athletic build, and this windscreen gives me great protection. Takes all the air pressure and moves it from below my ribcage to my shoulders/helmet. As for buffeting it is only noticeable if I am riding in full tuck position, even then it is minimal.
I have been comfortable at highway speeds up to 75MPH...past that it becomes more of a engine buzzing problem more than a wind comfort problem. No deductions for the shield there.
At low speeds, I feel like there is not enough airflow into my helmet. I like to leave my visor open anyways for air flow but it is worse with the visor, this screen directs and focus the airflow right into the visor making it hard for me to leave it open. so I crack the helmet visor to the first click rather than open it fully. A small adjustment, no deductions there either.
Overall, I rode for 3 hours straight with no complains. Previously I needed to stop every couple of hours to rest my arms and shoulders due to the wind with the stock shield.
I noticed no change in my economy with the larger shield, still getting 66+ MPG on my CB500x

Great windshield for the money.
The fit was a little tight and required manipulation. There seems to be very little buffeting at speeds up to 75 mph. It looks good on the bike and keeps the wind off my chest. Overall it does exactly what I wanted.

quick & easy
It's a quick mount and looks good. I got a little less protection than I hoped for; and that's what it's all about. I'm 5'10" with a broader than average build. I mounted the windshield after testing the other positions, at the tallest setting with an additional 1/4" forward lean angle. The wind hits me at the top of my sun glasses and at the shoulders.

Good looking windscreen, not tall enough for me.
From other reviews I thought it would be tall enough to get the wind out of my face, instead it from my neck to directly intoy visor. I put this on a Honda cb500x and I am 6' tall. But fear not friends, Revzilla has us covered. I bought a Puig clip_on windscreen visor a few days after getting this windscreen. It works awesome and is fully adjustable. Thought it looked funkyat first, but its also kinda badass. Back to the windscreen, very easy to install and feels thick and durable. I put rain-x on it and it works great. The curved look of the windscreen complements the bike very well, overall I am very satisfied with this windscreen.

Quality product. May not offer what you seek
Rider 5'09", 31" inseam. 30 + years riding, mostly street.
Wanted to find a windshield that would cut down on windblast and noise, over stock Honda screen.
Puig was lowest price of taller aftermarket screens available. And prior experience suggested it would be a quality product.
As delivered the screen is of high quality, and fit perfectly. Be aware that the mounts on bike are curved out and some convincing is required to align holes.
Windblast to body is cut down approximately 70%.
However, very little effect on noise within helmet. Open face or full face.
In short, Good product, Good price. Will help with wind on body, and looks great on bike. Very little effect on helmet noise at my height.
Hope this helps someone.

Wind at speed will always be a reality. This screen made a huge difference for me when on the highway, though. On the CB500X, I just lean back more if I'm cruising down the highway and want to cut down on helmet buffeting. If I want the wind in my face I can just sit more upright. No complaints.

Buffeting is not fun
The buffeting on the high setting was horrendous, and thankfully just annoying on the lower setting. The overall volume of air hitting my is less, and seems to be right around the top of the visor/forehead, but it's turbulent air full of snaps and pops. It just doesn't allow enough air under it.
I like the look of it, but I can't really say it outperforms the stock windscreen.
I'd suggest saving your money and maybe going with a full Madstad system.
