    I have been trying to find some info on how (if indeed it did) the CT evolved over time, new models, upgrades, improvements etc.

    Apart from finding that the DCT model got a new map at some point I can't find a thing.

    So - could anyone please point me in the right direction?

    I saw a CT with a map graphic on the bodywork the other day which looked good - was that a limited edition?

    Cheers - HM

    Later CTs got additional Sport modes and a choice between three torque control settings (plus off). Models from 2016
    got a redesigned front fairing with different windshield mountings and an adjustable shield mechanism. The seat got a
    minor redesign. Self-cancelling indicators also appeared, along with a fairing-mounted 12v socket.

    My 2013 has none of these; just one Sport setting, torque is either on or off and the windshield is fixed (though there's
    the option to fit Givi Airflow screens on these older bikes). The indicators are standard. It has the map/compass fairing
    graphic as pictured, which as you say makes it a Special Edition. Er, hurrah, I think.



    I can't think of any other obvious differences, but leaner fuelling must have been introduced to make the bike compliant
    with stricter emissions regulations. I'm sure someone will pick up on something I missed.

    Think you get it covered Hound.
    I think.... ( I don't have a DCT) there was a remap/ shakeup of the DCT to help it's smoothness but I don't know the year.
    I never saw your map/compass fairing before. Very pretty.
