'15 shift pro

Got this on accident, bike they had available was loaded so I got it. Pretty cool option. You can pin the throttle and the thing shifts in an instant totally seamless gears 2-6. The 1-2 is a little rough at low speed but on the throttle it's better. Down shifts are very good it automatically blips the throttle for you to rev match ...very smooth. Worth it IMO if you are on the fence.

I also have this on my S1000R (upshift only) and the engine makes the most wicked screaming howl when pegging the throttle during upshifts).

I love it for standup off-road shifting between 2, 3, and 4 without needing to worry about clutching.

Yep, my Dad's '14 RT has it. Worth it. Down shifts are very cool.

Keyless system is awesome , have your buddy try to start the bike with you standing 3 feet from it with fob in your pocket - its not gonna happen:)
Gear shift assist pro is better than you, me shifting especially
upshifting 2-6 and downshifting 6-1! Manual shifts are clunky big time , no problem with GSAP...

Rode about 150 miles today, about half of that on gravel and dirt roads. What a great ride. Lots of time standing, where the shift-assist really shines.
