I looked at it yesterday, also. My impression over all a better bike than my currant GT. Seating position better, but they did have the handle bars adjusted to the highest position.
I did feel that the seat itself was less comfortable than the stock seat on my GT.
Saddle bags are a huge plus. Can now open with a single push of a button, when unlocked. I think a lot of people have lost bags, due to the stupid 2 handle unlocking system of the old bags. Lid retaining strap now retracts, instead of getting hung up when closing the lid. The tail rack is flatter and bigger. Probably more useful.
Still turned off by the looks. Also, talked with corporate type for half hour about it. Signed up for a May ride.
They asked my wife what she thought of the color? She, told them "it looks like a refrigerator! "
Bike I liked the most: Aprilia Touno 1000R in the red and white checker paint job. Better seating position than the R1150R I had for a loaner last month. And only $13,000!
Bike I NEED: Ducati 999R Xerox race replica for only $33,000!
Wife liked the LT better than my GT. (That's, why I didn't let her try it. When I bought the GT). Can't see myself using it for every day use around town.
Being a nice guy. I offered to get rid of our GT and buy the LT. If, she let's me get the Ducati 999R replica for around town. Sounded reasonable to me!
