I’m currently selling my gsxs 18. Really considering a gt:gt+ I wouldn’t use the panniers but once a year in all actuality so I am questioning the mounting method. I really like the looks without the bags thus I wouldn’t want an ugly exposed frame for bag mounts 99% of time.

I took some photos on phone. There’s a black piece where bags will be sitting, do you think this is a removesble/snap on and off cover covering the Mount system for the bags? I would like to think so.

also,do you think it would be hard to remove the gold frame looking bars on rear subframe for a powdercoat? Not digging gold. Would prefer it black. If you guys think I could remove that easy enough to be re coated, do you think it’s oem powdercoat Or it’s paint? wondering if black powdercoat would be a weaker finish long term or weaker?

I don’t like the side fairing signals, I wonder if someone will come out with integrated signals/flush Mount that can clip or insertonto side of fairings. I don’t see why not. Many aftermarket companies tend to make these.

I hope motodynamocs comes out with a integrated rear tail light system for the new bike: I don’t think my current tail is same shape so would a new redesign.

Do you think puig or any big boys will come out with some aftermarket shields?

I pulled frame sliders, bar ends, levers and block off plate off my current bike to be used on next one. I feel the sliders should work, closely to the fairing but still work.

sorry for crap grammar. Using phone

Well the subframe has bolts, so you will be able to take it off to change the colour. Don't know what to say really about the rest of your questions. If you want luggage, then there generally is a compromise somewhere with regards to looks. Up to you whether you can live with it or not.

I don’t think test rides will happen. From what I’ve heard every single gt coming to North America will be presold . Here in my province BC the Suzuki rep said only 4 were coming... population of over 5 million.

Biggest concern is that bag storage option. I want it to look like the GT without bags, hoping the covers pop on and off over the mounting spot. otherwise I will have to get GT. but 600-700 more, id prefer to have the bags if needed in attic.

Cant even get my dealership to have interest on ordering one. they literally said, yeah not Suzuki not interested in doing pre orders on anything due to having issues getting bikes. They said we can get kawi/yami/honda but forget talking to us about Suzuki

So first person who gets a GT+ please get us some photos of the set up, and pop a bag off and see how the system looks/hoping we can put the plastic trim over it when panders stowed. even if I have to buy those 2 plastic trim pieces I dont care. Lol modular ftw

I have the SW Motech soft bags on my GSXS. I tend to ride about 50/50 with/without them but like how they leave the back end looking clean when you remove the rails. That sounds like something you might want to look into. I'd imagine SW Motech will make a set of them for this bike as well, it wouldn't be hard for them to make a new mount that fits under the passenger pegs.

Lol....you know we get bikes that you don't right? But not the other way around. You have California emissions to worry about. We get more of the bikes that go to Europe...For example I have a K1300R....every time I ride it in the USA guys are all over it...why? Because you guys didn't get it....lol.Btw how do we "parasite off of America" :)

canada pays more than its fair share in pricing from usa. I dont really understand how we get things so cheap, yet canada/europe/india, etc pay like double what we pay. doesnt make much sense.

The manufactures always do this with new models. I was on the Yamaha Super Tenere band wagon early on when the bike first came to North America, and it was the same. A bike I preordered and still own by the way. I think the manufactures trickle a new model like this out at first as to gauge demand so to not way overshoot production numbers. Anyway I'm new to forums as you can see by this being my first post and am interested in this bike. Hello everyone.
