    The replacement of the DIN socket with an USB socket is really a downgrade wonder why they did that. I guess the pillion DIN socket is still there but that is switched at least on my bike making it useless for battery charger.

    I reckon the swap is to allow folks to have phones mounted to use in conjuction with the still useless connectivity.
    Plugging the phone in under the seat was pointless and that usb is still there

    The hella socket is now on the lhs under the passenger seat.
    As others have said one was already there and switched. Its also only a 5 amp not 10 so will get blown using an airman compressor

    On my gen1 gtpro I use an optimate lead direct to the battery to plug a compressor in. Iíll do the same on my new gtpro when it arrives.

    Half a dozen CO2 cartridges will fill a rear tyre to about 30 PSI way quicker than any small bike mounted compressor and they don't require power. Each cartridge is 5-6 PSI on a rear tyre. From memory I have 10 cartridges stored under my seat. At 30 PSI for the rear you can at least get to somewhere like a servo with an air hose to complete the air fill.

    16gm CO2 cartridges are small and easily to fit into tight spaces.

    I struggled to fit my galaxy s20 in there.
    My airman has rescued me twice and quite a few who have been riding with me over the years

    I took a new GT Pro out today and would agree with the OPís opinions.
    Riding away from the dealer my first impression was that the engine seemed a little more refined. The gear change and quick shifter were faultless and better than my 21 model. I thought the seat seemed higher even though on paper it is still 820mm. I did think the new seat was a lot firmer so any height difference could be down to the padding not compressing as much. Not that keen on the plastic trim piece between tank and seat, a slight gap appeared at the front of the seat when I sat on it.
    Iíve never been bothered by vibes on the old model but the new did seem smoother and the only time I experienced them was when I gripped the tank with my knees, the bars were fine.
    The Metzeler tyres are as bad as ever and the TC light flashed a couple of times on slightly damp roads so didnít want to push too hard and couldnít really say how the increased power at higher revs felt. It pulled away more than quickly enough and easily got to 3 figures. A steady 70 felt quite relaxed.
    The new dash looks nice. I could set it to have the fuel range showing all the time but it seemed to revert to just the basic display when the ignition was switched off and you canít just push the joystick up or down to scroll through everything. Thatís a minor inconvenience and I much prefer the way it looks.
    There are some new plastics inside the front bodywork which looks better finished with less painted metal visible. It looked like I would be able hide my sat nav wiring away more neatly.
    I couldnít seem to get the fog lights to come on with the drl either. I did notice that they did come on with the headlight when the sensors thought it was a bit darker which changed the icons on the dash.
    Other than that it felt much like the outgoing model. A step on when the time comes to replace but not dramatically improved to make changing a must.
