Pretty much but the GT is considerably more stable and better over any bumps, the front end is firmer than the ST and the rear has more travel and is better at soaking up the road irregularities in my opinion.
If you change the stock exhaust and without bags the GT is probably the same weight as the ST, the stock exhaust weighs heaps, see my Remus exhaust thread.
The brakes on the GT are also a huge improvement with a rock solid lever and the ABS is very good in the wet and on loose stuff, I have used mine in both in emergency braking conditions.
There is no spongy lever syndrome at the front brake and the rear has plenty of feel.
Handling is as I said uber stable and a considerable improvement over the ST IMHO.
Pretty much what I wrote here, although now I have a lot more kilometres under my belt and am on my second set of tyres with the rear Pilot Road 3 now getting low.
and the list of items upgraded or improved on the GT form the ST:
