I've owned both a GT1 and GT2 (now you have me doing it!), and I like the engine sound more on the new bike verses the old. Initially I thought, ugghh, but now I'm use to it. I don't miss the case full of gravel idle noise of the GT1 at all. Yep, the GT2 is very turbine like, but also more of a growl than the Brick, as well as the odd exhaust burble on deceleration.
It's subjective, but I have no issues with the engine sound. I also have the standard wind screen, so my reply may not be in line with your original question.
