I test rode the GT a couple of days ago.
Coming off my R1200RT, I had some preconceived thoughts about "Scooters" most of which were wrong.
Looks & styling
Great CVT Tranny
CONS (again, IMHO)
A noisy engine
Nowhere near the wind protection of my RT (made my helmet very loud). Aftermarket windshields should help.
VERY stiff ride, might need break-in time and shock adjustments
All in all, it was an enjoyable experience and will cause me some sleepless nights trying to decide whether to buy one and sell the RT.
