My New 09 GT vs 07 GT
Picked up my new 09 GT , Magnesium Beige, all the bells and whistles.
I have a 07 K1200GT also and here are the differences.
More bucks $22,000!
More low end right off the line with no flat spots in the power delivery. Not that my 07 was a dog in it's delivery of the juice, but it went from great to perfect.
Shifting is much smoother on the new ride, no more notchy klunk the 2007-2008's are known for.
and gone is that little whine of the clutch basket the new gen k1200GT has. ( I was told this was normal by every BMW service manager I asked).
my 49 ltr case fits perfect on the new bike, I just needed the lock re fit to the new key.
I even tried my Bill Mayer seats made for the 07 on the new 09 and they fit.
What I don't like is the pee-cup brake fluid holders and the vent on the side. (I chose the Magnesium color because the vent is less noticable).
Hope this helps and no the wife won't let me keep both! see my ad in classifieds. (less bucks to still have one of the finest rides around)
