 I must admit I can't see the point of this "Sport" model either.  Virtually no different to a standard 1600GT (which I have) which is genuinely more sporty than the GTL, with real changes; a european/sports riding position via different seat/bars and pegs to the more upright Gold Wing position of the GTL.  There's plenty of power already, there doesn't need to be a sports engine.

If it's aimed at solo riders, get a K1300, unless you really want the 6 cylinders. (which I did, beautiful!)

Yes it's too big to be a genuine sports bike, but as a tourer it's fantastic two up, and solo it has all the performance and 90% of the handling of a sportsbike.  Certainly on the road it's the rider's skill, and not the bike, that's the limiting factor.
