Didn’t trade up from a 2014. My first GS was 2020 new. Had a K1600 before which I traded in.I'm currently riding a 2014 GSA with 45k miles and thinking about jumping up to a new 2022 GSA. I've read the 2022 is the same as the 2021 (options packaging changes only). I know the TFT, upgrades to the engine, new headlight, and keyless start are the Big Bang upgrades over the span of 8 years
My question is - has anybody made the jump to these new models from the 2014? Is it your opinion that this is a huge jump in performance/experience?
I'm planning on doing about 25k of touring this year know I can get about $9,500 on a trade in with the 45k in milage right now. I was told the trade-in would drop significantly adding 25k of miles. This is my 2nd GSA and know they can easily go to 200k miles. Just trying to figure out if I should jump now and pay 17k for improved model or just keep driving the 2014 for 4 or 5 years....
Thanks for your input!
I’ve also got a 2002 pan European and have tested the GS for a number of years and was always a little disappointed with the grunt finding it similar to the pan.
1250 arrives and I was smitten. It’s not as powerful as the K16 but weighs he’ll of a lot less and can do the same job with a Vario x-screen fitted.
TLR. The 1250 is a whole new kettle of fish as far as I’m concerned and made me jump from the ultimate tourer to something that will literally do everything.
Simply. Yes. Deffo worth the upgrade. 👍🏻
