With the conversion to the Apex-style rider-forward chassis for 2008, the main differences between the Apex and Vector models are simply the engine size and power. Just like the Apex, you can get a “base” RS Vector, a RS Vector GT, an LTX and a RS Vector LTX GT. The GTs get the premium Ohlins shock package for the ultimate in ride quality and adjustability. All models are powered by the three-cylinder 973cc carbed Genesis 120 for value and economy. Cosmetically, they even look like an Apex. And, like the Apex models, they all get the new rear heat exchanger to increase cooling capacity. Again, the best ride quality is found in the LTX GT.
