I Ride: 2013 Panigale S
Part number for windscreen upgrade...

The stock windscreen on my Panigale S is just a bit too small/low. I'm 6' and it's just too much stinkin wind and buffeting. I need something a bit bigger/taller and something that gives me more protection from the wind.

I'm down to 2 choices: Zero Gravity Corsa light smoke windscreen. This was easy enough to track down on the Internet.

The other option I'm considering is the DP (oversized?) tinted windscreen that comes with the R.

Can someone out there provide me with the part number for this particular DP windscreen.

Thanks in advance...

STW..I assume you're a big fan of the Zero Gravity product.

Realistically, I'd like to know if, in fact, the ZG Corsa windscreen does create a bigger "bubble" for the rider. I do a lot of freeway riding and need something to keeps the wind at bay a bit better.

Your thoughts and overall impressions about the ZG Corsa windscreen?

I love the DP windscreen but because my independent mechanical put it on and not Ducati this happened and they won't warranty it out.... Assholes.... Form great function zero gravity maybe betteriI just prefer plexiglass

Hi Akshuneer

I have had MRA windscreens on all my Ducatis... The plastic is very thick and is absolutely beautiful...
They cost a bit more than the others ( although the panigale prices seems to be lower than what I payed for my 999s and my 1198s) ...
Go to their website and check it out... I have had Puig and DP in the past also, they are good but very flismy compared to MRA.. The Zero Gravity is actually quite good also but I don't know the quality over time as others have promulgated here.

The DP screen cracks very easily. My Ducati tech found a crack around one of the bolt holes on my R during the first service. He gladly warrantied it for me, but it was surprising how easily and quickly the screen failed.
