ERGO Vario Screen ADV
Maximum wind protection with a windshield that can be individually adjusted using quick-release fasteners - sports, touring, summer and off-road windshield in one - for sensational stress-free, individually-adjustable riding pleasure.
Two upper shields are included, allowing you an incredible range of adjustment, suitable for virtually any conceivable riding condition. The supplied short upper section is 25cm (10") tall and offers a step-less range of adjustment from 25cm (10") to 41cm (16") or anywhere in between. The supplied tall shield is 37cm (15") tall and offers an adjustment range from 37cm (15") up to 52.5cm (20.6") measured from the top of the headlight. There is a two part adjustment: Flipping the quick adjust locks allows 10cm (4") of adjustment without tools. Loosening the mounting screws slightly with a 4mm allen wrench, allows an additional adjustment range of 5cm (2")
• Maximum protection for head, upper body and arms.
• Widened considerably at the bottom (transition to the hand guards) to provide optimum protection for hands and arms.
• At the top, the wide screen protects the head and upper body almost without any turbulence
• Continuous height adjustment thanks to a two-part screen construction.
• Quick and easy adjustment (release lever and push up or down).
• Adjustable to suit nearly all riders and riding styles.
• Integrated flow channel: depending on the chosen height, the gap changes and a calming counter-flow of air reduces turbulence.
• If required, the screen is simply adjusted down and the field of vision is immediately widened, and the wind can blow against the rider without obstruction.
• Reduces "dancing" of rain water droplets on the visor (vacuum turbulence).
• The design, based on our ERGO Touring Screen for the R1200 GS, closes the gaps to the headlights and looks harmonious and imposing.
• Very robust, optically pure and petrol-resistant Lexan plastic.
• Easy and quick to fit.
• 5 year warranty.
• The unique method of production permits the use of very complex forms to provide perfect protection from wind.
• TÜV approved.
The lower parts of the windshield are tinted in "shadow" (with a dynamic color transition), whereby the protruding controls are integrated into the design. The main screen remains transparent.
The Adventure version of this windshield utilizes the windshield reinforcement bar. The windshield that we offer for standard, non-Adventure models includes a support bracket, similar to the one on the Adventure.
This is the Adventure version. If your bike is the standard R1200 GS, (not Adventure) please see part number 8110427 under the related products.
This item fits the following:
- R1200 GSA (2005 - 2013)

|I finally tired of the turbulence and noise created by my previous windscreens (OEM and MRA Vario). The MRA was not bad, especially since I previously had a fly-screen fitted. However, with the addition of hand guard extenders, I noticed a significant increase in discomfort due to turbulence and a great deal of air being directed into my helmet (this caused frequent eye-watering especially during cold weather). The ERGO Vario provides so much better protection. And much quieter, as well. It's almost as if my bike runs better as I am now less distracted by helmet buffeting and noise. Very happy with the new windscreen.|
|This is the third windshield plus a wind deflector I've used on my GSA trying to eliminate or reduce buffeting. Finally something worked and this windshield eliminated 98% (is anything ever 100% ;-)) of the buffeting. I was to the point that I planned to sell the GSA this spring if I couldn't find a cure. The windshield is expensive but it worked in getting rid of the buffeting and IMHO it is due to the dual layer design and not as much attributed to the height.|
|I've had only painful experiences with my 2012 1200GS at freeway speeds with the stock screen. I'm 6'3" and my helmet was in such turbulent air it felt bolted to an asphalt a compactor. Unbearable in all positions. I tried without the screen to get a laminar air flow around the helmet, but the riding position is too upright and neck pain developed quickly. I rode a GSA with stock screen which worked much better, but it's too tall to my taste. The Vario screen fixed my problem, the buffeting is GONE. It deflects a clean laminar air flow. With the taller screen in the higher position, it goes right above my helmet. I can lower it to provide airflow into my helmet vents when it's hot. The lower screen is also quite efficient at deflecting air around my torso and shoulders. Only my forearms are in the airflow now. In the highest position, the tall upper screen vibrates quite a bit when the engine is at idle, due to the flex of the sliding bracket assembly. It holds pretty well at speed though. In the lower position, the taller screen is completely out of the field of view. It's my favourite position for riding in the city and on smaller country roads. The airflow is still very clean. Reason for dropping 1 star is their lousy instruction sheet. I'm a mechanical engineer and had to scratch my head for 30 min to figure out what part goes where and what to use from the original mounting hardware of the bike. A simple cross-section drawing would have helped a great deal. Other reason is the slide latch mechanism. It works, but it's finicky, especially in the highest position, you need to slide the screen down a bit (like 10mm) to allow the cams to roll on the slide. You definitely need to be stopped for this adjustment. A 1-hand adjustable mechanism to fine tune the position on the move would be great. More rigidity to avoid the vibration at low rev would be good too. I realize this sheet metal assembly it cheap to manufacture and anything else would increase the price of the screen. All in all I'm very happy with the ERGO Vario, it fixed the one big thing I hated about my bike (buffeting). It's not cheap, but well engineered with quality materials. I'd absolutely recommend it to anyone suffering from the buffeting of the stock configuration. It looks good too. It's really what the GS should come with right out of the factory ... with an easier (electric?) height adjustment.|
|Well I'm impressed with this windshield. Way better than the stock screen, eliminated most of the wind buffeting and very quiet ride with no turbulence behind screen. I could put my helmet visor right up and enjoy just the sound of the engine at 120 km. I'm 6' 4" and have been buffeted constantly with stock screen even adding a tourtech windscreen extender to the stock screen. Highly recommend this windscreen and the adjustable feature is super nice. I still could increase screen height by another inch, but it's not required. I like the fact that I can lower the screen when I go off pavement. Don't know how some riders had difficulty installing this screen, but I found it pretty straight forward and it took about 30 minutes to install.|
|This windshield has more variations for adjustments than my custom shocks!!! It is on my 2011GS and I LOVE it. I am all of 5'4" tall and so far I have been able to block all head buffeting and wind at its highest position(and I havn't even put the taller screen on) and feel more comfortable wind everywhere at its lowest position.If you cant be comfortable with this one get in a car.|
|In addition to the incredible versatility of this product, the overall effect on comfort level was very impressive. Wind noise and buffeting are substantially reduced; I don't think I would ever resort to the stock windshield after using the Vario. Installation was a bit tricky, but careful study of the product design and purpose of the screen yielded perfect results. I would happily recommend this upgrade to anyone with an R1200GS.|
|I bought this screen in an effort to reduce head buffeting. I am 5'7" and most of the other reviews are from extremely tall riders over 6' tall. I wasn't sure if this screen was going to be right for me but I was desperate to stop getting headaches. Within the first 5 minutes of riding I noticed that my head was completely still and there was NO wind noise what so ever. I was happily shocked and am now going to recommend this screen to all my fellow GS riders.|
|The end result of this installation is a super screen for the Adventure. I\'m 5\'11\" and the adjustablility is wonderful. I can\'t give the product five stars because of the almost total lack of dirctions -- the installation was one of the worst I\'ve ever done. Also the fit and finish was not up to the normal high quality of a Wunderlich product.|
|Bought this for my 2008 R1200GS - had gotten sick of the buffeting from the wind due to the low OEM windscreen. Installation was easy enough but it helps to have a 2nd person be available to help hold the screen and tighten screws during install. After researching many different windscreens, I decided to go with the Vario as I do some off road and liked the ability to drop the windscreen. The major buffeting by the wind is gone completely! I can flip up my visor and not have my eyes tearing from the wind and my chest is no longer getting pounded around. Highly recommended!|
|I am 6\' 5\" and the stock BMW GS ADV screen made me feel as if I was a wind tunnel tester. The new one does it job and lowers wind noise. It makes riding the bike much more comfortable. My only complaint is the mounting hardware seemed cheap. And the installation a little tricky. You have to mount the screen from the bottom up and be very careful with the screws. BMW has some weird angles for receiving their screws.|
