    The 2021 RT looks tidy. (early pics off Facebook)

    The GS 'is' the better bike :-)

          Quite like the headlight. Slims the front end down a bit (or appears to).

                  Oh no!   :alas:


                  I love:-
                  • The active cruise control (and linked to lean angle!),
                  • Adaptive LED headlights,
                  • The extra 3 "favourites" buttons,
                  • Better horn,
                  • Moving the aerial off the front of the bike,
                  • Better audio system,
                  • Back-lit buttons.
                  But I dislike (hate)
                  • The TFT screen. If only they had left the speedo and rev counter analogue and put a big TFT in the middle,
                  • Additional "wonder wheeling" that will be needed to change displays to what I want to see at a particular point in the ride,
                  • The look of the front end, the lights look too small making the vast fairing look very odd,
                  • The black wheels the blue bikes get.
                  And where are:-
                  • The reverse gear,
                  • In-built dashcams front and rear,
                  • Automatic gearbox (a tall order I know but it is 2021 and auto is the future!),
                  • Better mirrors?
                  Well at least I am not remotely tempted to change out my March 2020 RT for the 2021 updated one !    :)

                      Notice the Heated seats are now extra, only heated grips standard, wonder if I can swap the heated seats from my 06/2019 R1250RT to the new one?? are they just "Plug and Play" ???

                        The basic spec is the SE, the LE gets heated seats the same as it always has.

                          Mine will have 2 years next July.
                          New one looks nice, but I'm not sure if change will be worth that. Will wait until you swap it and give some comparison be

                            Looks like a worthwhile upgrade from my '16 1200.  Like the TFT, there will be a lot of Nav 5 and 6s going on eBay!

                              Trying to find out how sophisticated the new navigation is on the TFT, would like to be able to route plan, insert waypoints, like the Nav 6, or is it a simple A to B navigation device??

                                Hope that you don't have to use Basecamp for route planning!
