I'm just wondering if it is worth the effort putting a cover over the Vectrix when parking in the sun. It can be quite tricky and bothersome between other scooters parked closely.

So I'm wondering how much sun damage has been observed by other Vectrix owners who have been parking their VX-1 in the sun for years.

How resilient is it to sun damage? Does the windscreen turn milky?

Any reports and maybe photos would be much appreciated!

Mine is either in the garage, or covered when out and about :-)

after 4 years the windshield is in perfect shape. The paint is also perfect. The plastics are becoming slightly gray due to the sun. And the nail has morphed to white. I believe it is a good idea to protect the vectrix from the sun.

Hi, mine stands in the shadows or is covered. Comparing to other windshields from other bikes,
they will become milky some day, but covering will keep them in shape longer.

Greetings Mike
