Foam surrounding tach and temp gage on 900RR?

I've always wanted to know the answer to this question. I have a '93 Fireblade. Why would Honda design the tachometer and temperature gage surrounded by a die-cut foam piece? The foam looks silly....what is the foam for? Why not make the surround out of plastic? There must be a functional reason for it. Weight difference between foam and plastic is negligible so I don't buy that reasoning.

I'm stumped. Any ideas?

Possibly dampening to limit vibration?

The worst part is it is 100% cosmetic. The foam doesn't do anything. Took mine off.
