What is the difference between a motorcycle fairing and a naked bike?

Driving naked and driving with a fairing provides two different approaches to customizability. First is that fairings provide protection on the road, so that debris and other road particles don’t hit you as you drive. Most sport bikes you see on tv and on social media most likely have fairings as they have a certain aesthetic appeal that Batwing Fairings provide. Installing high-quality Batwing fairings can enhance the overall value of your motorcycle. Potential buyers often see fairings as a desirable feature, making your bike more attractive in the resale market.

How does a fairing improve fuel economy?

Our lightweight fairings significantly enhance your motorcycle's aerodynamics, leading to improved fuel economy. The streamlined design reduces air drag, allowing for smoother rides at higher speeds. Additionally, the reduced weight contributes to better fuel efficiency and overall performance. With Batwing Fairings, you can enjoy a more efficient and enjoyable riding experience. The fairing really pays for itself with what you’ll be saving!

It's important to check with the manufacturer or retailer to ensure that the specific Batwing fairing model you are interested in is compatible with your motorcycle.

Enhancing comfort for your everyday ride!

Having a Fairing helps you deflect wind away from the rider creating a smoother and more enjoyable experience. Fairings can also reduce the turbulence and buffeting experienced by the rider. They also help you with seasonal effects like the cold! The last thing you need during winter is cold freezing blasting in your direction, and your hands feeling like they will fall off just because you have no wind and temperature protection from a fairing. Lasty they also help with rider stability as having it be aerodynamic reduces rider fatigue.

Easy maintenance tips for long lasting Fairings.

  • Regular Cleaning: Clean your fairing regularly with mild soap and water to remove dirt, grime, and bugs. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that could damage the surface.
  • Polishing: Use a high-quality motorcycle polish to keep your fairing looking shiny and new. This can also help protect the surface from UV damage and fading.
  • Inspect for Damage: Regularly inspect your fairing for any signs of damage, such as cracks, chips, or scratches. Addressing these issues promptly can prevent further damage and maintain the integrity of the fairing.
  • Tighten Fasteners: Check the fasteners and mounting hardware of your fairing regularly to ensure they are tight and secure. Loose fasteners can cause vibrations and damage to the fairing.
  • Storage: When not in use, store your motorcycle in a cool, dry place, preferably indoors or under a cover, to protect the fairing from the elements.
