Exclamation GT vs. RT weight specs . . . interesting

From the BMW website, they post the following specs:

K1200GT
Weight, unladen, with full tank - - - 622 lbs

R1200RT
Weight, unladen, with full tank - - - 571 lbs (w/o cases)

Umm...does this mean that they are weighing the GT with the cases installed, and the RT without them installed?!? It sure seems that way to me. And if I'm correct, that sure does narrow the margin of weight difference between these two bikes, now doesn't it?

You are correct. Our GT weight includes the bags.
