Just looked on Puig web but no technical info regarding real aerodynamic effect. No polar curve, no graph, no single number at all🤔

I'm curious about the result. However I wouldn't expect too much, maybe racier aestetics.

Because there is no tangible benefits, they are purely for aesthetics. The winglets are ineffective at producing downforce at anything below 100mph/160kph. At that speed these bikes are running out of puff, you certainly won't need any downforce adding to stop it from popping a wheelie at that speed.

they are not purely for aesthetics! they add drag! so technically ... they help with braking ;) :D
