I think I'm going for the Givi as it's available for £55 from Italy.

I did order this from Italy, but was out a fair bit on the bike yesterday with the standard 2015 screen on. I did a fair bit of moving my hands about in front of me to feel windflow (must have confused some oncoming drivers!), and found still air in front of my body. The wind doesn't come in until around my nose. In the rain this has just meant rainex and sideways shakes occasionally.

So I've cancelled the Givi order. I'm going to give it a bit longer, and see if I can find a source of the 2016 standard screen over here.

 I live in West Tennessee,received a 2016 CB500x windshield yesterday shipped directly from Tailand skipping American Honda warehouse.So if you are waiting for a shield or wish to order one looks like Honda is filling orders,good luck!

Did you order from Honda US or Thailand? I spoke to a UK dealer yesterday who confirmed the part number but said that Honda haven't even given them prices yet. Which I guess is why it's not coming up on UK searches.

Does any one know if the 2016 windscreen will bolt directly on a 2013 model?

When the topic runs to 88 pages, I'm not surprised if they don't! We really need a few FAQ sections and some stickies for topics like this. Then it's easier to find the information in the first place and to point folk in the right direction if they do miss it.

You may say that, I could not possibly comment.

But to give the guy a break this is page 89.

I did not say it fitted easily on my 2015 because I was not 100% sure the 2013 is identical, though I'm pretty sure it is. Just need a bit of side pressure on mine.
