Update your look and get extra comfort too

The ability to see the road ahead is important when you’re riding or racing a motorcycle. Zero Gravity helps improve vision while also increasing rider comfort with its Zero Gravity Double Bubble Windscreen. The windshield is a direct OE-style replacement available for many sportbikes, including our 2012 Honda CBR600RR project racer.

Available in three different tints (Clear, Smoke and Dark Smoke), the windscreen comes pre-drilled using the original mounting points. It features a raised bubble that is said to increase the aerodynamics of the motorcycle while also offering superior protection against wind blast and road debris compared to the stock component.

Depending on the make and model of your machine, installation can be as simple as removing the fasteners and/or mirrors that secure the windshield to the front fairing. Next, pull out the original piece and swap it for the Double Bubble. Re-install the fasteners and you’re ready to ride. Zero Gravity Nylon Fasteners are also available if you misplace a screw or want to freshen up your ride.

In terms of optics and vision clarity, the difference between a clean, scratch-free stock screen is negligible. However, if the original screen has some scratches or blemishes due to normal wear and tear, the difference is readily apparent. But the real benefit is the improvement in ride quality and comfort due to its ability to direct air up and over the rider’s head. This made it more comfortable to tuck-in behind especially out on the racetrack or in inclement weather.

Considering its affordable price tag, the Double Bubble windscreen is a simple and inexpensive way to update the look of your ride while also elevating the level of comfort too.
