Puig Touring Windscreen Kawasaki Versys 650/1000 2015-2016
Easy fit took 10 min to put it on. Works great. Makes the bike look awesome.
I recommend this product. Fits great works great. This in my opinion makes the bike look better. It keeps the right amount of air off of me when riding in the top position and in the low keeps air on me to keep me cool.

I am 6 foot even and find this shield effective at reducing wind blast sufficient to allow for listening to music through intra-helmet speakers while wearing ear plugs on the high way. Especially when configured at its highest position. I can cruise at 85-90 m.p.h. (legal in some parts of Wyoming) and still hear music.
I purchased the smoked version. It is somewhat difficult to see through. I rarely find this to be an issue as it is easy to look over the top of the screen. However, if you are in a situation where you need to pay attention to road conditions directly in front of you (parking lot maneuvers and the like), then your vision will be somewhat impaired. But I think the color looks great with the Orange finish on the 2015 Versys 1k model. I would purchase the smoked color again, but if you do a lot of dirt or negotiate a lot of pot holes then you may prefer the clear.
I do wish the screen could be configured in a lower position. Its stability is predicated on the bottom of the screen resting against the brackets on which the screen's bolts are bolted. This limits how low the screen can go by an inch or more. I don't find this particularly detrimental except for on the hottest of summer days, but that is a fairly personal observation and should not necessarily be taken as criticism. After all, you are buying the screen specifically to block wind....
All things considered I would buy the screen again. It is effective and I feel like its aesthetics compliment the lines of the Versys.

I put this on a Kawasaki Versys 650 in less that 5 minutes. If my wife would have been near by to hold the screen in place while I put in the hardware it would have taken even less time. I got the dark smoke and it is a good look. I have the screen in the lowest position. I'm 5'9 and the wind is deflected so that I could wear a baseball cap while riding without worrying about it blowing off. I get enough air to keep me comfortable in the hot weather. I will probably raise it a bit for winter riding to keep even more air off me. I was shocked how fast it came Revzilla is a first rate company!

PIA to install (not Puig's fault), great coverage for size and price
First off, holy carp what a pain to change the screen on the V1000! So many little fiddly-bits. I would have paid 20% more for a screen with all those bits attached and included that just work with the OEM rails.
Given that, the screen itself performs well. I am 6'2" and at the very top placement I guards my chest completely and most of my helmet. At the bottom I get a new breeze on my upper cheat and arms on hot days.
Was considering a "front door" style screen for total coverage if this didn't work, but don't think I'll have to.

Fast Delivery, Product works well, could be more durable
First, Revzilla's performance with handling the order and shipping it to me fast was outstanding again. The PUIG screen is excellent, and does the job. It is a little thinner material wise than the stock screen, so now sure how it will stand up to a stone strike. Also the bottom edge of the windscreen where it is curled touches the windscreen slider brackets and hence vibrates/rattles when riding. Easy fix to file away some material there but annoying none the less to have to do it. So these are my reasons for not giving it 5 stars all around.

Excellent Upgrade over Stock Screen
Fitted to 2015 Kawasaki Versys 1000 LT: The Puig Dimensions by my measure are 19.5 inches high, 19.5 inches at the widest point, 12.5 inches wide at the top and 14.5 inches wide in the middle. Installed at the lowest setting, the Puig rises 13.5 inches above the very top/crown of the dash. By comparison, the stocker is 14 inches in total height, 16 in at the widest point and a mear 9 in wide at the top. The Puig dimensions set up excellent coverage for touring without throwing off the appearance of a ridiculously large screen as some alternatives do. I think the screen has a great "all around" appearance. Install is <5 minutes with a 4mm hex key (six total bolts). I purchased the "dark smoke" which is not opaque as it may appear in photos; more like a dark pair of sunglasses. See attached photos.
