Considering the burnt orange sold out so quickly I'm surprised it's been dropped

I have a 17 black, it was the only one left and just like my black car it looks nice in the showroom but a bit rubbish on the road. Never mind bikes are for riding not looking at. The 18 grey would be my choice.

the only colour left was the orange , I quite fancied it till I seen it in the flesh , much preferred the green , but everyone has different tastes , it is a personal choice.

Funnily enough I thought the opposite, each to their own. Don't like the silver much though, never seen a good looking bike in silver, works on cars but not on bikes imo?

I was surprised too, went to my local dealer at the weekend thinking I could get an orange SX ordered before the end of the year, but apparently I'm too late, only taking orders for 2018 colours now, so I'm out as they say on Dragon's Den.

?? I am wondering why the 17 black looks rubbish on the road..
I have one, looks great, don't particularly care what others think but with that said a good number of folk say what a great looking bike it is. thats me happy twice over.

Single year colours can date a bike {or car} whereas variants on stock colour schemes don't. This pointed out to me by my dear lady no less and with a wry smile the dealer agreed.

Still each to their own, my old CB1000r was a superb bike in my eye, others wouldn't touch it with a barge pole...  fair enough  :820:
Target fixation, don't look to deeply into it..

I disliked the 17 black when I first saw it online, but when I went for a test ride I was suprised how good it looked in person, looks verry classy. I´m still without a Z1000SX so i hope that the new colours look nice irl and won´t regret waiting. :002:

Not sure how they can call that 17 Black  :027: more like 50 shades of grey IMO  :745:

Still a nice looking bike, but it ain't Black!  :038:

This is a black SX - the one in pictured earlier in this thread is black and Grey - it's certainly not black.  Sorry but love my black SX - not impostors.  :029:
