I just had my 2022 GT Pro delivered last week. Same color scheme and no changes that I have seen.

I am interested as well. I wonder why they call it 2022 but there are no changes at all.

However, I hope they correct those minor issues first bikes always have.

Bike model year is based on the manufacturing period of 1st July to 30th June. e.g. Bikes built between 1/7/2021 & 30/6/2022 are considered 2022 models.

A small history lesson for the young people.  :002:

Historically automotive assembly plants in the northern hemisphere used to close down for summer holidays in the June/July period and while the plants were closed for production they were retooled for the next model year. When production resumed in August it was the new models. The automotive show season was late August through to October and at the shows the new vehicles were introduced to the public and were available for purchase at dealerships immediately afterwards.
All this has of course changed with the advent of robot production, flexible work contracts and the Internet. People have access to new model information months in advance now rather than when the monthly car/motorcycle magazine arrived or when they went to the once a year show.

Very interesting had no idea, did you know a certain industry does this still to this day !?

Here in Switzerland many watch companies, have fixed vacations also in July for 3-4 weeks,
this goes back to the 60s and further, some never changed it.

I think Moto Guzzi may still have a summer full factory shutdown.
When I sold cars in the USA in the early 1980s the model year used to officially run from 1 September till 31 August.

I was under the impression that this was the case for much of the French manufacturing sector, where August was traditionally taken as an extended break and companies would effectively shut down for the month. Is this still popular?
