Daytona BMW Road Report
Visited Daytona BMW today and spent some time with the parts manager. He rode a GT unsupervised after BMW Daytona did some service on one of the demo bikes. The parts manager is a current owner of an '03GT and made some comparisons:
The throttle on the GT is a lot less (and I quote) NERVOUS than on the current S or R
He apparently rode the 'heck' out of it, unsupervised, and was very pleased with the performance.
Bike felt a bit heavier than S or R, but less than older GT
Wind management not as good as the LT or RT, but better than his '03 GT.
He thinks FWIW it will become the 'dominant' cycle in the BMW product line. And is targeted at the FJR, ST1300, and Kawa Concourse. I don't think so because of price points, but just my opinion.
So, yet another report.
