G310GS windscreen, clear or black?

So this is what my windscreen looks like. I am in the US. Most of the real pics I have found online are not from the US and have a clear windscreen. Can you compare yours to mine, did I (or does the U.S.A.) get a black windscreen, or do I have no windscreen at all?

Thanks

I wonder why all the overseas seem to be clear and the US black? I'm fine with the black, but I do like the look of the clear...

Maybe, but I doubt it, mine is clear here in Canada, which can be really anal rententive about safety.
My thoughts are this is a late 2018 model change up. Mine is an early 2018 model.
Personally I like the dark tinted version better, goes nicely with Cosmic black.

mine is black (and I am in Canada, too) - so yes, I think it's due to a model change up.

Yeah! I bought an used 1450 for 50 bucks on eBay and bolted to the rack. Works great and I like how it looks.

US certification issue

Read an article yesterday that stated the US windscreens are black due to US windscreen certification requirements. Sounds like they wanted to get them on the streets and not wait for windscreen certification.
