No reports on this so far so I guessing it is negligible.
Reality check please.
Vibration is noticeable, yes, intrusive, no.
More than the old GT, and different. What little vibration the old GT has was in the handlebars, I've noticed NONE in the handlebars of the new GT, but sometimes a bit creeps into the seat, especially when you crank it open. At steady state cruising, I've not found a speed that it bothers. Mostly it's barely noticeable.
I thought the engine would be the centerpiece of this motorcycle, and to a certain extent, I guess it is. The engine is very satisfying, and powerful enough that shifting from top gear is optional in most any passing situation. The REAL centerpiece of this motorcycle, in my opinion, is the completeness and versatility of the whole package. Everything it does good, it does VERY good, what little it does bad isn't very bad!
