New K versus Old K Handling
One thing the new GT will have to do, much better than my current GT is handle better on technically difficult roads. (Yes, I am interested in the new GT despite the visual blahness.) I understand the new GT wheel base will be longer than the S to add stability in touring mode, so right out of the box it will not handle like the S, that and the extra pounds, and any differences in the front end geometry must be taken into account as well.
That said, can the folks that came off the old KRS to the new S compare and contrast the handling of the two machines?
1. Does it turn in easier?
2. What kind of feedback do you get from the front end--does it feel light, heavy?
3. Was it a huge difference in handling in comparison from the RS, if so it what way?
