FUEL 23 litres @ 44.55mpg = 225 miles range WEIGHT 205kg (dry) SEAT 835mm POWER 173bhp TORQUE 106ftlb RICHARD NEW­LAND Sports­bike ad­dict with a love of road rid­ing, in all weath­ers.

HEIGHT 5ft 11in WEIGHT 117kg richard.new­land@mo­tor­cy­cle­news.com When I first got the GT I’d looked for a 12v power socket, and couldn’t see one. “Odd,” I thought, “they put one on the Su­per Ad­ven­ture, and this is sup­posed to be a sports-tourer.” I then for­got all about it un­til a GT owner men­tioned the one on his bike. A flick through the in­dex and con­tents in the man­ual didn’t re­veal its lo­ca­tion (I’ve since dis­cov­ered it as ‘Socket for elec­tri­cal ac­ces­sories – P36’) – and then I found it when I wasn’t look­ing, while fit­ting my sat­nav. It’s on the left side of the pod be­hind the dash. Eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble, but not im­me­di­ately vis­i­ble. Numpty? Yes I am.

Can’t see for look­ing, Rich found socket
