Title: GSA LC 2016 much smother than GSA LC 2014

GSA LC 2016 much smother than the GSA LC 2014

I know it is the same bike BUT.  my 2016 is better - smother, sounds different and gear changes are like butter.

my bike was one of the first GSA LC's in south Africa, so one of the first made.  I did over 40 000kms in the 18 months.  the software upgrade on the quickshifter made a huge difference already, so its not that.

my new 2016 GSA I have only done 1700kms, so its still running in. but the difference is huge.

they must have done some improvements in the two years.

Would there be a difference between the 2015 LC Trophy and the if there is a 2016 LC Trophy. ;)

Any difference between a 2015 and 2016 model should be the same across the range as they are mechanically the same.

Experienced the same, was taking the 2015 GS and GSA for test rides. Decided to go for the 2016 GSA. The gearshift is smooth, and for some reason it feels different, maybe because it is new?
Well, don't really care why, it is just a great machine, putting a huge grin on my face every time  :biggrin:

Specs are different, there are apparently notable differences between the bikes. Bigger flywheel??  Ive not experienced it myself though.....

I also dead abouf bigger or heavier flywheel. Think however it is only the GSA and not the GS.....but would be interesting to hear from more owners

possibly this, but is was (supposedly) changed in 2015, and not 2016, maybe took some time to filter through...?

That's it
Also ABS PRO package and of course the colour changes. According to dealer, those are the spec differences between '15 and '16

Ek het presies dieselfde agtergekom met myne. Klink sommer heeltemal anders.

Ek het so twee weke gelede my ou staatmaker 2012 GSA ingeruil (20k km ) op `n 2016 GSA LC.
My eesrste indrukke rakende die ratkas is regtig nie goed nie. Ek het darem nou eers 500km gedoen.
Die skakeling van 1 na 2 en dan na 3 is maar vrot as die enjin eers warm is, en daar is nie `n manier/tegniek om dit beter te doen nie. Ek hoop die nuwe olie wat na die eerste diens gaan kom, maak `n verskil.
Die wobbly screen is ook iets wat beter gedoen kon wees na my mening.
Die res van die fiets is premium en mens kan amper verstaan hoekom hy so moer baie geld kos..  :imaposer:

Self was terleurgesteld met die nuwe GSA se windbeskerming vergeleke met die vorige GSA. Baie opmerklik toe ek van die oue op die nuwe klim. ' n Groter skerm by Pauli het die probleem dadelik opgelos

Mens kan dit goed verstaan.  Erge verlange en begeertes doen dit aan 'n mens.

Stem saam - ratkas my ook bietjie teleurgestel - het veel makliker oorskakeling verwag. Verder be´ndruk die fiets my sover.

My 2016 het nou 10000 km op. Die eerste 2000 of so was die ratte maar rof maar het beter en beter geraak. 
Dis nou glad en ek kannie meer kla nie.
So dit loop seker maar in - of ek begin die trick leer.
Die screen het my ook gepla maar eks hom nou gewoond. Het nie eens geweet daars 'n beter screen beskikbaar nie.

toe ek vir n verkoopsman noem dat ek verstaan die 2016 modelle loop gladder as n 2014 LC toe word die man nogal agresief oor hoe hy sal weet want hy ry elke dag daarmee en en en en dit is nie so nie

Maar nou ja
