Simulating riding speeds of up to 150mph and making various adjustments to body positioning in order to reduce drag, this information will be fed back to MRA to allow them to produce the perfect screens for Leon and Troy.

“The riding position is a main factor for the aerodynamic efficiency of the overall package of rider and bike. The positions of the head and the upper body, of elbows, knees and feet can have an enormous influence on the drag, and subsequently on lap times," says Rainer Bäumel, Technical Director Team BMW Motorrad Motorsport.

"Of course, there is not one position that is the optimum for all riders, because it all depends on so many different individual factors, beginning with height and stature. The intensive work in the wind tunnel enabled Troy and Leon to find out what riding position is the best for them personally.

“At the same time we try to improve the aerodynamic efficiency of the bike as much as possible within the strict technical regulations”, Bäumel continues. “This is why we evaluated several different shapes and positions of the [MRA] wind shield. We collected a lot of valuable data that will help us with the set up of the bike for the next tests.”.

MRA's Racing Heritage
Founded by Johannes and Gerhard Klement in the the early 1980s, MRA has a true racing heritage. Before focusing entirely on producing the world's finest screens, they originally developed and produced products such as motorcycle fairings, bodywork and raised pillion seats exclusively for motorcycle racing and this is how the company got its name - MRA Klement - from the initials for Motorcycle Racing Accessories.

Today, as the original inventors of the Double-Bubble Racing Screen, MRA are proud to continue their technical partnerships with many racers at all levels, including Kawasaki MotoGP into 2008.

Working closely with the Kawasaki factory team's designers and engineers, MRA supplies optically and aerodynamically efficient screens to enhance top speeds, stability and fuel efficiency, produced from the same unique, durable - and virtually unbreakable - material as used in the screens you can buy for your own bike today.



MRA screens are used in all levels of racing and some of the world's leading professional riders have ridden and won behind their MRA screens...
