The additional weight is due to going to a watercooled system which is being driven by EU emissions standards for the net add of 24 pounds, it negates 3 HP. In the end, the bike will be faster but a tad heavier but still lighter than the old 1150GS.

If you want lighter... they have a bike for that... the F900GS
