    (Super) Naked Or Not?

    Cycle World's Sean MacDonald takes a pair of 2017 Aprilias to NorCal's Thunderhill Raceway and renders a verdict, sort of!

    I like faired bikes for the wind factor, last time I had a naked upright in the mid 80's I suffered neck pain and always had backache problems, been on SS ever since without any of those issues and wouldn't look at a bike without a fairing regardless the changes in fashion.

    Fairings serve their purpose for sure.
