The hand grip height to seat top height on the K1300S is very similar looking to the K 1200 R Sport I bought last year.
Comfortable improvement.

Kind of cool, be interesting to see the new specs on them. They say 160 hp on the GT....so 7 or 8 more hp? With another 100cc I would have thought they could squeeze out a bit more, but I'm no engine guru. Also looks like a minor plastic cosmetic change......got to keep things changing I guess. Drive looks to be the same size, only black. Would have been nice to see a bigger FD. That could have been a key selling point for them. And a big honking stick up in your face brake cylinder? What's up with that?

Not much or enough to make me want to trade up.

Details....give us details!
