    The latest issue of Ride or Watercraft World (I don't remember) had the top speed rated at 61 mph. I can verify Mon. I left the magazine at work.

    I have a '08 HO Cruiser. I haven't GPS'd my speed yet( I'm working on borrowing a GPS). My fuel consumption is approx 0.3 litres/Km (from the gauge) at a speed ranging from 35 to 75km/h(22-46mph) which is about 7.92 US Gallons per 62 miles. WOT is 47.1 l/hr.

    I find the seats quite comfortable. I'm not that tall at 5'10". If you were taller you could probably feel a little cramped with your feet on the foot plates, but I generally ride with me feet in the wells. The GP1200 I had before you could basically sit anywhere on those seats but with the cruiser seat backs you basically sit in the one position, although you can sit on the the seat backs as they are quite soft. I was on the back of my ski with my girlfriend driving and my thoughts were how comfortable the seats were.
