K1200RS & K1200GT

What are the differences between K1200RS and K1200GT made before 2005...?
I have notice they have 6 speed trans and the LT only has 5 speed....do they both come with cruise control? Are they more power than the new K1200LT released in 2005...? looking to purchase an older RS or GT but I want the brick motor Not a Boxer.....
thanks,
Jeff

The K1200RS made from 1998 until 2004 has 130HP, the 2005 and later LT has 115hp. The K1200GT based on the brick also had 130HP. The 2002 and later K1200RS and GT was available with cruise control. Most sold in the US had it, but there were some ordered without. All of them have 6-speed transmissions, the LT has 5 plus reverse.
