    They shrunk it. Saddle looks more sculpted. Nice evolution in the marque.

    Earlier model years should get a boost in resale value from this development I think.

    It will be interesting to see these in person. They did mention the base RT and the RTL would be about $1300 less than the current year. I like the no top box from the RT model. Looks are a bit different. Can't wait to see the new colors available.

    Enough to make me pull the trigger....probably not.

    They said they lowered the seat but the driver has 2" more leg room and Passenger has 1" more leg room.

    It sounds like accessory add-ons will be more modular and similar to how you accessories are added to the Ryker. More DIY for those non-mechanics like me! I'd buy one!

    One question, does the wheel base look wider than the previous RTs?

    Looks kinda F3-ish. Makes me wonder if they're discontinuing it. Finally, after all these years, all LED lights up front.

    I like how that top case is removable. I'm kind of digging the redesign... It needed to be freshened up.

    The top box is better than the F3 even though it looks the same.

    In the trash can, it was. They spent about 5 mins on the Spyders and only 2 at that. No mention of any engine changes. Very short and simple. Was very upset with the outcome.

    Not too crazy about all the straight lines and the front end.

    Looks like an FT and F3 limited only on the next level of luxury.

    The top box is got gas shocks and a stronger lid with metal hinges. No more flimsy lid.

    Can't get a look at the dash and they offer a Garmin GPS. No radio, no anything about music or entertainment.

    Whew...... I thought they might have come out with a higher performance shaft drive that would make my bike obsolete. Looks like same-ol-same-ol cosmetic upgrades. No reason to jump to the "new" stuff...... Jim

    They will have the new Tech dash but more storage. The rider part of the seat flips up for gas letting the passenger stay put. Adjustable floorboards. Removable trunk.

    I find it interesting. I sure hope they did a better job with the top case, frunk and side cases over what they did with the F3.

    I like the looks of this when the trunk is off. Nothing that I would switch up for, but the larger saddle bags (larger than my F3T) are nice. I also like the larger frunk.

    So they now put the RT on the F3T/L chassis with a different set of body work. The old RT chassis was introduced in 2013 and was the same as the RS and ST. So I guess time to go.
