The OEM Fly Screen provides 2013 Zero models with a small but reasonably good-looking hard plastic shroud around the Koso instrument cluster above the headlamp.

Presumably this has a marginal effect on drag and energy consumption, but it probably helps smooth airflow with or without a windscreen.
2014+ S models have a plastic enclosure for the headlamp that interferes with this.
