The transmissions and carbs aren't quite up to what we expect, and the GT's weigh a lot more due to their use of all steel frames with less sophisticated (heavier) welds - at least they did in 2006. The suspensions were older designs, too - damper rod forks in inverted tubes, non-adjustable shocks. They may, and I hope that they have, gotten better since then.
I WAS the dealer.
And no they haven't.
