They keep making bikes smaller and I always think, the least aerodynamic part is the rider and they are making him sit more and more out in the wind.
A bigger fairing would give him something slippery to hide behind.

Im sure they have some nerdy math to determine the balance between aerodynamics and just poweringthefuckthroughthewind.
Then again, they are italians, so who knows.

Sometimes its a trade off when you have a smaller frontal area. That also depends on the shape of the rider for total CdA...
