Love this windscreen. It complements the look of my bike perfectly. I have a candy apple red and black 2011 Yamaha R1. I was originally going to buy the Dark Smoke colour. But in the picture it looked a little too light coloured to me so I decided to go for the black. Happy I did, BUT the black is WAY DARKER than I anticipated. It is not transparent at all. You can hold it in front of your face and stare at a light and see NOTHING. Black plastic, if you want any sort of transparency go for the dark smoke, if you want the dark black look like I did then go for the black.
