New 16 GT Owner

Post by GKGorman » Tue Mar 13, 2018 10:25 am

I've purchased a new '16 GT and it should be delivered Saturday from the out of state dealer. I got the top case, and ergo seat as mods, and the brake recall work was done.

I commute weekly from LA to San Jose and back so she'll get some miles fast. Does anyone know if the shift pattern can be reversed? Also, are there any quick turn throttles available?

Thank you,

Congratulations.

I can’t answer your questions directly, but I will say that in Sport mode the throttle control is exceptional. I’ve now owned five bikes with ride-by-wire and ridden a few others. My Ducati has been the only one that I thought was really well sorted. I can now add my SD GT to that list. It may not suit your desire, that is really subjective. But it’s really good

Hi,

You can get a reverse shift pattern adaptor.

I just got a 17' GT on the 13th of this month. Rolled 1.3k miles today. Fantastic bike. How do you like that top case? Is that the 48 liter? I was considering buying one but holy crap it is expensive.

I like the top case. Yes, it's the 48. Easy on and off. I was disappointed it wasn't keyed to the bike, so now I have separate keys for it. With the torque and the instant response ride by wire throttle, I consider it a requirement for two up riding.
