    Not necessarily. The front and sidebags could be smaller.

    Someone else can correct me if I'm wrong, but the first time I saw HHC being advertised for the Spyder was in 2018 for the F3 and in 2019 for both the RT/F3. In 2018, I purchased a new last-year's model 2017 and remember seeing the spec differences where the HHC was being advertised for 2018 Spyders but not the 2017.

    IMO, very little to get excited about. I' ll hang on to both my Spyders until Honda releases the neowing. In general, the demographic trend is towards an aging population, probably more so for motorcycle riders. That being the case & for safety concerns from most governments world wide e.g. [ in Australia if they could get away with it, motorcycles would be banned in the blink of an eye], i think most Japanese motorcycle manufacturers will very soon have a 3 wheeler, which could spell the death knoll for the BRP Spyder.

    People have been predicting that almost since the Spyder first came out.

    It's all about timing. With todays younger generation disinterested in motorcycles, combined with the above, the time is almost ripe.

    47 with top case, thought I read 36 in specs? If it's 47, then that would be a huge improvement over the 41 gallons on the pre 2020 mods, maybe then the top case would be worth the extra @2K on the RT. Without the top case, there's no comfort for a passenger and less storage. The RT is a touring machine designed for two up riding makes no sense trying to make it into a one up/sport touring machine. That's the for the F3...I don't get it.

    I kind of like it, but don't think it's enough to make me trade in the '14. there might be 6gal more storage, but if it's not arranged in a useful manner, then it's meaningless.

    I like the RT, seems to me that with all the new mods, we RT riders can have a taste of both worlds, ie: remove the tox box and with the similar look to the F3 get the F3 feel. The linq system allows the owner to change it up for their various needs at a given time, already has the high mount break light / better floor boards / bluetooth / looks like the same handlebars as the F3, so no specially made mounts to add for phone etc, not really seeing anything is needed (as in the over priced aftermarket accessories) other than to hop on and go for a ride. Sad that they did away with the orange color for this years model though.

    I agree, though will come in handy if riding solo and have a bag strapped to the rear seat

    I totally get it! I do both - 2up touring & 1up/sport touring. The 2up & storage of the RT and some of sportiness of the F3 when you want it.
