Re: Differences between the 1200 /1300 GT

Numerous differences, 84 to be exact.

Larger bore and stroke, 8 more hp with improved torque throughtout the rpm range.

MUCH better fuel mapping for smooth low speed operation.

Anti friction bearings for the transmission for smoother shifting.

Revised front suspension geometry for improved handling.

Various other improvements which I can't recall. Ithink they are listed on kbikes.

I've ridden both the 12GT and the 13GT. The 13GT is a very noticeable improvement.
