- lack of TCS, ===> ?
- lack of decent windscreen, ====> can be solved but can be ugly
- lack of fuel range, ===> Markus underseat tank
- lack of decent luggage capcity, ===> solutions exist but rear frame isn't built for that (remember, max 5 kg on the tail)
- as lack of a decent passenger seat.==> www.osenstetter.de is the solution
GSA is about 45Kg (100 lbs) heavier also....

Lighter is better, remember that from R1150GS to R1200GS, the goal was to lighten at least 30 kg (66 lbs)
