AZKomet Posted October 10, 2007 Share Posted October 10, 2007 My Nov 07 M/C mag came today. They tested the ST 1300, the FJR, the RT and new GTR 1400.......drum roll please!!!!! The ST 1300 came in fourth citing weight and no updates since 03. They did give it great ride ratings though. The RT came in 3rd....they boasted on its fairing, bags and comfort but gave it low marks for HP and the fact one had to keep it wound up to stay in sight of the others...all in all the review was positive. (I just came off a 1000 mile trip with no complaints....) The FJR came in 2nd with the mag saying it had a good feel and performance. The heat issue was gone and it was a great machine. The GTR 1400 came in 1st as it had been refined. (Really??? Where is the heated grips, nav system and cruise???) Anyway the mag loved it saying it was a tremendous machine with little faults. The options lacking may come in another production year?? There was little negativity on any of the machines really. They did slam the RT for its higher price when the others will out perform it for about $ 4200 less. Maybe, but I have heated grips and cruise!!!! It is hard to fault in modern machine nowadays. All are quality built and reliable. Guess it all depends on likes and the $$$$ in your pocket huh??? Big question??? Where was the GT????? Link to comment
