ryan, siguro kasi iba kapag galing sa big bike yung rider... konting hila lang sa lever, respond kaagad

Coming from a vespa PX, nung magkaGT ako, sobrang lakas ng brakes ng GT.. hehehe... very big difference sa PX...

With the GT, you really have to squeeze harder kung medyo bitin ka... and use both brakes.

How about compared sa X9 mo before? :)

the x9 is a different story, linked brakes yun, 2 disks sa harap... when you press the rear brake lever, i think may 40% braking din sa isang disk sa harap... iba pa yung independent front brakes... so sobrang ganda talaga braking ng x9...

I can say that the x9's braking is better than my GT's but compared to big bikes, hindi ko masasabi kasi i've never ridden a big bike...

Yung GTS naka ABS di ba?  Do you think may effect yun sa medyo mahinang response ng braking? kasi di ba yung ABS, nagpa-pump yung brake rotor intermittently para hindi maglock yung wheel? hmmm   ::)

I see... parang yung Honda VFR800 ko many years ago may linked brake system and ABS so maganda talga stopping power nya.

Yung GTS ko di siguro ABS version. Napansin ko sa Vespa sites na halos sa Italy lang yata for sale yung GTS250 w/ ABS.

Anyways, medyo comfortable na ren ako sa GTS so di na malaking issue yung brakes nya for me. At least alam ko na yung limitations nya.

Thanks again!!!
