I have not had the seat long enough to know if it is durable but it appears to be.
The stock seat was less comfortable than the Sargent but not by a large margin.
So, I believe it was priced accordingly to all of the factors and overall it was a good purchase.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Just received the X4 and have 800 miles or so under its protection. Visor has already paid for itself as it controls sun blindness by just a tilt of the head.
Handles the wind well - some noise but understandable with the design- shield is clear and visibility excellent.
It is has the quality that you would expect for the price that you pay. The helmet adds positively to any ride
Yes, I recommend this product.

 Givi AF260 Airflow Windscreen Vstrom 650/1000
Givi AF260 Airflow Windscreen Vstrom 650/1000
Givi AF260 Airflow Windscreen V-Strom DL650 / DL1000 This stylish, well-constructed replacement windscreen features improved height and shape with top-notch quality. Mounts in minutes using stock fasteners. Features clear tint and precision-cut shape. Overall height is 29.5 (750mm) maximum width is 23.6 (600mm), approximately 4 inches (10cm) taller than the original screen. Specific sliding wind-screen, transparent, complete with fitting kit. Maximum height 90 cm (12 cm of extension) width 58 cm AIRFLOW is the most versatile Givi windshield to date. The adjustable spoiler allows the rider on the fly to easily and quickly make adjustments. Made of transparent polycarbonate, the adjustable spoiler is infinitely adjustable along the 4.7 (12cm) of travel. Once the desired setting has been selected a simple and secure clamp will keep it in place. The design of the AIRFLOW system creates an aerodynamic effect that eliminates turbulence, allowing for maximum protection from wind thus reducing rider fatigue. Another important feature is the ability to reduce AIRFLOW to the rider to increase driving safety while raining the spoiler effect reduces and, can at times, eliminate rain from collecting on the visor and reducing vision. During the warmer days the AIRFLOW spoiler, can easily be removed allowing travel with only the lower part of the windshield as well.

Excellent Windscreen
Easy to install - easy to adjust while stopped at a stoplight - does what the ad says it will do -
I do not think I could ever go back to a standard windshield.
Cons:
the material scratches easily -(ex) 3 months 11,000 miles and it has a lot of small scratches from wiping it off --- even though I have always used a clean soft cloth and I have been very cautious .
Yes, I recommend this product.

The tire feels solid which gives me confidence in the corners and begs for higher speeds.
I have noticed some twitching when crossing cracks in the pavement but I think that is the result of an aggressive tread, deep cracks in the pavement, and speeds around 95-105 mph.
Good tire overall !
Yes, I recommend this product.
