I just saw it last night getting some part numbers off the Kaw website.
Black (when it is clean) looks great!
But, it is hard to keep clean; dust and mud really stand out. It also really absorbs heat.
I know white doesn't appeal to everyone. But, dust and mud don't stand out that much; although little dark bugs do.
It is cooler in the summer, and more easily seen on the road.
White is my preference. YMMV
In the tiny pick I can find the white and silver don't seem to contrast each other much. Maybe giving it a little to 'sterile' of a look.
But, the white gold combo looks much better in person, so who knows?
