  1. But you know, functionality aside, I think auto/moto dash design is going the wrong direction with busy multi-color graphics, etc. I'm surprised they aren't simpler and with a cleaner, analog look like aircraft instrumentation. My 848 EVO has the old-school LCD and I think its easier to quickly see info you're looking for. My '06 MTS 620 has an analog tach (with an actual needle and printed numbers - remember those?) and its the easiest for my eyes.
  2. Ah, so until I saw it in person, I didn't realize how easy it would be to pop the bodywork off and paint/wrap/etc. Or how few panels there are to this. That said, yes there are some crazy good deals on non-GT models.
  3. Yeah, that's where I'm at. I don't have to have all the features (like the color TFT, I can live without), and there are some smoking deals on non-GT's right now. Would probably prefer aftermarket bags, too.
  4. Thanks! This is hugely helpful and exactly what I was looking for. I agree, needing a different wiring harness makes it a waste of time. I can live without the color TFT dash, but didn't realize there was actually a different harness. (Some bikes have a lot of modularity between models and an ECU reflash is all that's needed to access a feature. Had hoped that was the case.)
  5. Thanks for the replies. I'm less concerned with $$$ and more concerned with technical feasibility. I've found a new non-GT that I'd like to buy. I really want the GT, but don't like the color, and it would actually be more to change the bodywork (in # of pieces and cost).
  6. Whats involved in installing components offered on the GT onto the non-GT? (I'm deciding between the Tracer 900 and GT. I love the color/livery of the non-GT, but don't like the color/livery of the 2020 GT.) TFT dash Plug-and-play? ECU flash to make it work with immobilizer? Cruise control Handlebar switches? Plug-and-play? ECU flash needed to unlock feature? Quickshifter Bolt-on? Plug-and-play? ECU flash needed to unlock feature? Forks Bolt-on? Same triple clamps, brake calipers, fork bottoms? Shock Bolt-on? Same linkage? Heated grips Handlebar switches? Plug-and-play? ECU flash needed to unlock feature? Bags May just run aftermarket ones -unless the factory ones really are waterproof? (I know this isn't cost-effective, but I am an experienced, competent tech.) I own a '06 Ducati Multistrada 620 (1st gen) and an '12 848 EVO. I'm selling them because the maintenance is becoming hard to get around to with a toddler and another child on the way. I need the Toyota-of-motorcycles if I'm serious about riding all-weather, all-season, all-the-time, everywhere, etc. Thanks, Aaron
