Finally bringing the GT here is good news. Seems like everyone made announcements today.

Love those things and for once I could afford it, just no leg room on that beauty. It seems all bikes are being made with the pegs too far back unless you are short.

I was told that they will be released in September or October and each dealer is
only allocated 1. From what I've read they are incredible,Has anyone seen one in
person or heard anything different.

I rode the 1290 Super Duke and found the legroom to be very similar to my Concours 14. Not to bad even on an old guy like!

Maybe one day I'll have one...

Is this just a superduke with bags and a screen, or are there engine/suspension differences?

Rumor has it at about $20,000,i have read that there are ergonomic differences and slight engine detuning , running 170 hp. Close to the same weight as 1290r but a little heavier due to heated grips and cruise control and the rest of the touring accouterments that make it a touring version. Sounds like a winner if you can get ahold of one.

I rode to Mazama Tuesday and a guy on a 1290 Super Duke caught up to me, but before I knew what it was I knew it was fast as I couldn't shake the dude. Finally on Rainey Pass he passed me and pulled over on Washington Pass to talk. I want to test ride one of those things, but would have to have the GT for touring purposes.

Bald Guy, My bro used to sell that Concours 14, he is 6'4', I am 6'6" and his kid is 6'8". All of us found the 14 really uncomfy for leg room and that was with 3 inch handlebar risers to open the riding area a bit. Awesome bikes in all other areas. Those big Japanese standard models of the 70s and 80s all had the foot pegs under you knees and to me those were the most comfy bikes ever made. Ive spent a few hundred dollars on different bars and foot pegs and risers and seats to get my KTM sort of comfy for m, I need gas at 100 miles so Im glad to get off and stretch by then anyhow, Nice to meet you.

Good God! Your family is a freak of nature!

If my legs matched my body I would be 6'4". However they actually belong to a 5'6" dude somewhere in New Guinea and are short and bowed. Watching me get on my Explorer is considered entertainment, so my perception of leg room my be a bit skewed!

While the GT’s MSRP hasn’t yet been set, it’s expected to retail right around the $20,000 mark when it becomes available in the U.S. in September or October. At that price, it’ll be about $2800 more dear than its older brother. And while one certainly could tour on a Super Duke R by tossing on some bags and a windscreen to create a facsimile of the GT, you’d have to do without highly desirable features like active suspension, cruise control, adjustable wind protection and tire-pressure monitoring.
Wow! $20k!
