Those that really understood the GP450 really love them. Some expected to get the same benefits of a GS with less weight and were disappointed.
Its one of the rare motorcycles that excels on your favourite twisty B-road and on the gnarliest of goat track. It is so light you never have to worry about dropping it so you drop it less. And, when you do, they are so incredibly tough.
They are all day comfortable, have a 20 litre tank capacity, and will cruise at 74mph – yes 74 is the sweet spot where its not too buzzy and you still have power to pull out to avoid joining traffic. Max speed is about 95 on standard gearing.
There is one new model left in the UK with a former dealer, a couple in Poland and a few in Switzerland I believe and a few low =mileage ones knocking around on Autotrader.
We still carry most spare parts in stock.
Used prices are very attractive now too.
