Not a trick question...!

In the new Hyperstrada, does the mini fairing/ headlight nacelle move side-to-side with the handlebar, or is it fixed so that the fork uppers rotate independently inside the (static) fairing ensemble?

L of S

The following picture makes me think that the bar and the dashboard come together which is not the best for the front wheel stability when you drive fast.

The mini fairing/headlight assembly all turn together when you turn the wheel. I finally got to sit on one last night at the bike show. The bike was everything I had hoped for. The only slight worry I had was the slope of the seat. The incline from driver to passenger pushes you forward a little bit. I would prefer to have it more leveled off, then angle more straight upwards then the current setup. I think that can be taken care of though. I also took some pics (not great sorry), of the underneath to show how the luggage is mounted on the bike. There are four bolts (allen) that hold it onto the underside of the seat, remove those and the bike is ready to go more "naked".
