And with little exception its a black and blue year. If you like color you won't be buying a Kawi this year. Friggin black sucks. I wish the pseudo, wish I was a bad ass biker, gotta have a black pos bike guys would all get a life so we could get some decent colors on a bike.

So if I go with white wall tires my Classic becomes a rare 2009 Classic SE? I don't see any other differences other than mine is the red.

There's nothing "wrong" with black....'cept it shows every little mark and scratch!!
My other bike is black.
Never Again.....

Seems to me that the 11's are the same as the 06,07,08,09 and 10's, which isn't really a bad thing. If you have a good basic design....why change it?
Of course, if they ever offer a six-speed gearbox, I'll be allllll over that like a bum on a bologna sandwich!!!

+1

On the JetSki side of power ports, owners laugh about the BNG.

(Bold New Graphics)

IMHO, white walls too hard to keep clean. Moreover, the only way to keep a bike sparkle clean, is don't let it leave the garage......

Stop waxing and go ride !

Black sucks. A large chunk of guys buy it because they think it makes them look badass. In fact it just blows chim-pahn-zee.

As another negative, that was already brought up, it does show every spec of dirt/scratch, and damage. That blows too. It's fine as an accent, the Candy Fire Red and black Voyager/Vaquero is sharp looking. I would have gone with a brighter red, but the one used is more reserved. You can't really see it on the website but I've seen pictures of it off of the VROC site.

I know the blue is pretty good and the Blue and Silver Nomad looks like a keeper. Not as beautiful as the se V2000 with the silver frame, but darn close. The rest, grey on black, black on black, boring, contemptible, wannabe black.

I wouldn't fit with the Emo and Goth crowd, at all.

It'll have to be a totally different engine/transmission AND the top gear WON'T change, they just shoe horn another gear inbetween the ones you have.

I can't see any cosmetic changes at all on the Custom model.

Speaking of black, check out the Custom SE...now *that's* black! They even ditched the orange accents.

*Passion Red *Mustang One-Piece Vintage Seat
*Hard-Krome 2.5" Strippers with Smartpartz Hard Kore Baffles

I'd like black a whole lot more if it wasn't so overdone. In fact, a beautiful, all flat-black paint job just tugs at my heart strings. Problem is, there are a million and six black bikes in my city alone.
