I think there are a lot better looking fairings out there.

I like the idea of the cool air duct tho, the more cold air into the air box, the better.

Not like I'm an engineer or anything but how does the "ram air" get into the engine?

I'm not an engineer but even I know it's either designed into the original bike or it can be added to any bike later with the use of "bullsh1t listing tape".

Is it just me or does it make it look like a mini moto.

Not a fan tbh, but I did notice it doesn't require a front subframe for fitment, if you smash up your bike and damage the subby (and plastics)that might make the cost a bit more justifiable.

It doesnt. One of the photos shows the end of the duct, open, just behind the forks. No way it's going to increase pressure in the air-box.
