Just a quick one not sure to use normal bike polish for metallic paint or the special type for matt paint as both appear in the colour title. Paint looks matt but feel metallic can anyone advise. Thanks 馃憤

I don't know about the GSXS specifically, but in general, matte finishes look that way because of the clear coat. If you polish in the same way you would a gloss finish, you'll get a glossy result. If you want your matte finish to look it's best, you should be using products designed for matte (sounds obvious, but I didn't know this for a while). I like Dr. Beasley, but there are certainly others.
