Seems like a decent quality cover for the price. However, I rate two stars because Nelson-Rigg and Amazon are so unhelpful about selecting the correct size. Even the Nelson-Rigg web site is so unhelpful, lacking ANY dimension information, that I have to think was intend to mislead you in order to sell a second cover that is large enough. As someone else noted, if you get a cover that is too small, you can send it back for exchange, but only if the package hasn't been opened. That means, you can't really send it back because unless you open the package, and you can't know if it is the right size until you open the package.
I did my best, and ended up with one cover that is way too small, and one cover that is barely large enough. I ended up ordering one more cover of XXL size for my Harley Sportster, and it fits pretty well, but that isn't the largest bike made. The XL cover that I originally ordered for the Sportster, I now use on my wife's Honda PCX 125 scooter, and it isn't overly large. The Medium size cover that I originally ordered for the scooter is worthlessly small.
My suggestion is to go to a local dealer that will let you test fit a cover. If you want to mail order a cover, select what you think is the correct size, and then order two sizes larger. Unless you are worried that strong winds might tear an over-large cover, it is far better to have a too-large cover than a too-small cover. A too-small cover stresses seams constantly, and makes for difficult install and remove with every use.
