'07 Graphite GT with pics...

Here are a few pics of my new bike. I attached one of what I traded to get this bike. I really needed to thin the heard a little anyway.

Here's what I got rid of...



Here's what I got...



I know it's not the k12gt plate - but I figured I had to transfer one of them...



Well that's it for now.

Thanks for your help in researching this purchase.

Matt

Not sure I'm going to. I think this bike is more RS than the old RS was

It handles soo much better than the RS with Ohlins. I still think the old brick is a bit smoother at this point.

Is this bike an 06? Looks like it by the instrument panel.

Matt,
Congrats on the new bike. You have the black seat. I thought the GT's to the US got the light grey? I prefer the black. It obviously is an option?

Nope, its an '07. New brakes and all. Also noticed the "SET" indicator for the cruise is in the left dial now.

They do come with the grey seat. I hated it, and fortunately my deal was kind enough to switch if for me. The black looks sooo much better. It is supposedly a no charge option at ordering time. I didn't order this bike. It was ordered for a customer and he backed out because of the time period. So I swooped in and traded everything for 1 bike. So nice to have 1 bike and 1 insurance payment.
