Innovation as a company philosophy

Since its beginnings, MRA has been determined to develop new and unique products for motorcyclists. This determination follows a tradition started by the company's founders Gerhard and Johannes Klement, who developed and produced exclusively products like cowls, windscreens, and aftermarket seats for racing.

The name of our company, MRA-Klement (Motorcycle Racing Accessories), expresses our dedication to our products.

These early experiences, combined with the determination to continually develop new products, were important later when the company began to specialize in the production of motorcycle windscreens, a move that extended our role as a leader in the motorcycle industry.

For example, in 1988 the company successfully developed windscreens with burbling edges that reduce air resistance when the rider is in the tucked position. According to a test performed by the German magazine " Motorrad ", this windscreen added 5 kph to the top speed of a KAWASAKI ZZR 1100.

In 1992, MRA invented a process that enables us to produce burbling-edge windscreens without distortion. In that year, Gary McCoy used our windscreen on an Aprilia and achieved the highest top speed (official measurement) in the 125cc world championship. He also used this configuration to win several Grand Prix races.

In 1994 MRA were the first manufacturer to introduce racing windscreens, known as the "double bubble", at the IFMA show in Cologne, Germany. In the following years, renowned riders like Max Biaggi, Loris Capirossi, Alex Barros, Carlos Checa, Andrew Pitt, Gary McCoy, Ralf Waldmann, Nobby Ueda, and others were victorious at numerous Grand Prix and World Championship races on Grand Prix motorcycles equipped with MRA racing windscreens.

In 1999, MRA introduced our new Varioscreen windscreens. The first model in this product line was a two-piece windscreen for the HONDA ST 1100 Pan European. This model is equipped with an adjustable-angle wind deflector that permits airflow through the windscreen.

In 2002 MRA developed a completely new type of windscreen, the "Vario-Tour Windscreen". These windscreens have a height and angle-adjustable spoiler and relieve the rider of wind pressure and turbulence. They work by slowing the laminar airflow that is directed through the windscreen, which acts like an expansion nozzle.

MRA have also been working on the racing windscreens. What we found is that not all racing innovations can be transferred 1:1 to street bikes. In particular, the round dome had a negative effect on stability of the motorcycle because on some bikes it could generate lift at top speeds. Also, the rider's helmet was sometimes blown from side to side if he was not completely crouched behind the windscreen.

That's why our latest generation of racing windscreens employs a significantly improved dome shape that is flattened on its upper side so that, instead of lift, it generates the desired down force. The new design also eliminates lateral turbulence in the helmet area. Front-mounted air intake slots reduce negative pressure under the dome by improving airflow at the end of the windscreen. We also applied these improvements to windscreens designed for older motorcycle models so that everyone can benefit from the latest advancements.
