The GT’s new does a fine job of deflecting the mountain air off my chest, but just in the weather takes a turn for the I’ve stashed my waterproof in one of the spacious accessory saddlebags

Arcing through the fantastic of these mountain roads, the new feels roomy, comfortable and equipped-ready to climb mountain all the way to Switzerland and beyond.

Performance is good, too. The Mana out of hairpin bends with a midrange punch, heading for a top of about 120 mph. The 839cc produces a throaty exhaust that rises and falls as I thumb through the seven-speed gearbox.
