    I think the grey one does not have "GS" stickers on the tank from the factory:

    The tankslapper matte film works very nice on the sides of the tank of the Gray model. You can't tell it's there unless you get close.

    Test rode the 2020 1250 GSA. I already have ridden the new motor and loved it, so I still loved it in the GSA. I mainly was testing the suspension between my former 2017 GSA to the new bike. Is it just me or does the suspension not get as low as the former?
    Anyways, for sure the bike I’d be buying.

    Was it set to MIN? In AUTO, it can ride pretty high depending on conditions, and in MAX or Enduro Pro, it's, well, high.

    Yeah I tried auto and min in road and dynamic. Overall it just felt a tad bit higher. It could also be that its new suspension so it hasn’t settled yet?

    That is a good theory IMHO.

    If you are judging it based on your reach to the ground, it could also be the seat. On a recent trip I noticed staples pulling out of the riders seat, and over a few K I lost a couple of more and the cover was pulling out. I pointed this out to my dealer at the 6k service and they ordered a replacement. I picked up my bike yesterday with the new seat on it and immediately noticed a bit of of extra height. Full disclosure, my suspension and my seat settle more than most riders, I'm 300ish. And there's also the possibility your seat is set low and the bike you rode was high?
