year 1994, the MRA appeared as the first "double bubble" racing
screen manufacturer at the international motorcycle trade
fair, IFMA, in Cologne. This screen type was developed to
reduce the air resistance of racing and sports bikes, thus
increasing their top speed.
In the following years, famous motorcyclists such as Max Biaggi,
Loris Capirossi, Alex Barros, Carlos Checa, Andrew Pitt, Gary
McCoy, Ralf Waldmann, Nobby Ueda and others won Grand Prix
victories and world championships on Grand Prix bikes with
MRA racing screens.
However, successful ideas in racing sport do not translate
to the open road without some modification. The round dome
turned out to have an adverse effect on riding stability,
causing lift at top speeds in some models. The screen also
caused air turbulence that tugged the rider's helmet to and
fro unless the rider kept hunched down right behind the screen.
The latest generation of racing screens comes with a very
different dome design that is flattened at the top; so instead
of creating lift, it tends to pull the front of the bike onto
the road - a more desirable effect. The turbulence problem
has also been eliminated. In order to reduce the vacuum effect
under the dome, some models now have air intake slits in the
front part that improve air flow at the edge. These improvements
have also been adopted for our existing models, so those who
ride older bikes can also benefit from these developments.
