Fairings are used on the motorcycle frames in-order to reduce air drag. Mentioning air drag, you need to need to have an essential explanation about it. Racer bikes going at 200-300 kmph as a normalcy, faces an incoming wind which slows down the bike creating a backward force called drag. Hence, to avoid or mitigate this effect, sports bikes employ these fairings to streamline the body resulting in a free-flow of air through the bike frame instead of the air impinging on the various parts causing interference. Other purposes of the fairings are the protection of the rider from airborne hazards and wind-induced hypothermia.

Basically, there are two types of motorcycle fairings you need to know about:

a) The front fairing
b) The rear fairing

They are further classified into Streamliner, Dustbin Fairing, Dolphin Fairing, Full-fairing, Half-fairing, Quarter fairing etc. Based on their placing and shape, they differ from each other.
