GT1000 vs GT1000 Touring

I've come across a GT1000 which the owner claims is the touring model. I know little about the GT series. I thought the touring came with saddle bags but he said his did not.

It does have the chrome front fender, chrome rear fender, windscreen, and chrome luggage rack on the tail, but that's it.

Can someone enlighten me to the differences between these models?

The GT1000 Touring came with everything you mentioned, including the saddlebags. Perhaps the PO bought it from someone who sold the bags? From what I've read, they look nice, but they're not really all that functional anyway. The Touring did comes with taller bars, too, partly (I believe) to accommodate the windshield mount.

Hmmm... I thought it was supposed to have luggage too. He says he has taller bars on it, which he had put on in place of the stock ones and that he has both sets of bars. Sounds like it might be a bit of a bitsa!

In the model "touring" are fitted as standard: the windshield, chrome luggage rack and fenders (which are also accessories for the GT model).
The side panniers and the "comfort handlebar" are accessories for both models.

The bars are raised by installing the windscreen,and go back to the lower position when the windshield brackets are removed.

Thank you MOZO. That clears it up and makes a lot of sense.
Cheers.

1000Gt Touring

There was a special set of bars, called "comfort bars" they were 90mm taller and 30-40mm wider. As I recall they were part of the touring package. There wasl a touring seat also; known as the "comfort seat" which was a larger seating areas and not splayed forward and downward in the front. I have both on my '07 Gt which is not the touring model. As I recall these were two of the "included" features of the Touring model along with the chrome package; fenders and luggage rack. I think that I have every accessory made for the Gt and were the following:
Chrome fenders (f&r) Chrome bar end mirrors
Luggage rack Trunk bag/case
Comfort bars Center stand
Chrome Fame plug kit DP Tankbag-the large one
Rear fender liner
Windshield
Chrome chain guard
Leather luggage panniers/brackets
Comfort seat
Termi Exhaust/ecu

You are absolutely correct, installing the windshield will raise the bars about 20mm regardless of which bars are used. For those interested I also have: 14t front and 41t rear sprockets, WASP PUK kit, the aluminum wheel set, Sachs adjustable rear shocks, Showa nitrited adjustable front forks, Storz steering damper, Corbin seat w/backrest and starter wiring kit by "Moto-electrics". The suspension changes and wheels with the Wasp Kit made the largest changes in the bike's temperment, everything else is just "window dressing".
