>>1255464>What did they fuck up on the GP5k?
'Different, therefore worse' kind of thinking. The flip side is the 'Same brand, therfore good'.
Essentialy - there is a reason why, for example, Spesh keeps its big mountain bike named 'Enduro' in spite of it being completely different with each product refresh. Same thing - XTR from 1997 is completely different product then XTR 2018. But - same name, thus normies associate them.
In essence - successful brand sells its splendor to its successors.
Conti should have named it GP 4000 Pro, or some such.
