That honestly looks terrible to me. Surely not an official BWM thing.
I kind of agree. Definitely not my thing, but it is in keeping with the retro theme of the R9T's design in my opinion.

One question: What did he do with the air intake? It looks like that fairing would completely cover it. Did he extend it forward, or is there an opening in the fairing we can't see that exposes the intake?

Well, I like it as it the idea works although today’s bike is more shorter and stubbier than yesteryears one and I’d shrink it all down a fraction to be in keeping

That fairing definitely looks retro, but in a very bad way to me. The 9T gives a nod to retro but is itself a modern design - that fairing (like basically all fairings on the 9T) just looks like an afterthought and makes the bike decidedly lame. If that was an official BMW release i might have to sell my 9T as the shame would be too great :).

We’ll I’m in line with the dislikes 👎🏻 Windjammer was the key word, HONDA all over except for the boxer. Pretty? ….yeah a little. Would I buy one … he’ll no ! To me it’s no BMW except for the jugs. The rest looks 80’s Honda all the way.

Ironically the very "Honda" fairing you are all dissing is pretty much an OEM fairing from an R100RT.
How many years ago GapRunr? … if you like retro style it is definitely that. You could ride that to the disco and be right in step for 1980. So boxy, 👎🏻

There are some fairings that look exquisite IMO on the R nine T. I'm not a fan of the Windjammer, even when I saw these things as a kid I scratched my head wondering WTH.

Aside from the beautiful fairing of the Racer model, this one pictured below on Zard's (unavailable) website looks the business.
