Yes I have one. It's hugger for an SP2 and is a gorgeous piece of carbon-fiber at a very nice price.
Very easy to install.
The photos do not do it justice. It's much better looking than that.
It was patterned after the CBR600R hugger that some adapted to the SP2.
However Tyga designed the hugger to properly conform to the swingarm SP2 dimensions.

What's it like for protection against crud getting flung on the underside of the tail?

It doesn't cover the chain, so in that regard not at all.
It's not very large, so its effectiveness is not as good as huggers that surround more of the tire.
It mainly helps prevent crud from getting flung to the upper shock body.

Thanks Subsailor; that confirms what I thought - no criticism of Tyga's products (Their top Yoke's on my bike).
I did consider their hugger, but figured the MR one was better for reasons of protection from crud: Turns out the MR does still allow the left silencer & underside of the number plate to get a bit of chain lube flung onto it, but otherwise gives fairly good protection.
Tyga's will only offer the minimal protection described by Subsailor above.

While it's effectiveness can be debated, the Tyga hugger is a very nice piece!!

Some may call it bling, I prefer to consider it as "functional aesthetics".
