USA 2019 FJR color

Since we only get one, post up what you think it SHOULD be and what you suspect it WILL be.

I think it should be silver but I suspect it will be matte gray.

It SHOULD be Burnt Orange gloss, but I suspect it WILL be a neutral color that doesn’t interest me and will make me glad I have my ‘16 gloss blue.

im not really into matte. I like Gloss black, I think it should be black indefinitely .

I think they should have 2 or 3 options in color every year.

It should be a Kenny Roberts style yellow with the black and white checkered stripe.


It won't be anything I want it to be. Which is kind of good because I really don't want to trade in my '15 just yet.

Never run out of ideas, traction, and real estate at the same time.

I hope itís something good. Thatís the year my warranty runs out. Iíll be over 100,000 miles, and a 19 will probably replace the 14.

I'm not sure the FJR is the right bike for Kenny Roberts' colors, but I won't cry if I see it come back as an old school choice. Sure beats the heck out of snot green used by another brand.



I like my '17 black paint but a) black shows every bug, every mud splatter, and every little oopsie, and b) left in the summer sun, it's frickin' hot, which does very bad things to full and near full gas tanks, to say nothing just plain touching black things. Nice color in the showroom, only somewhat more practical than matte. Although it does give the excuse to name the bike Habu. Take the '17, swap the digits, and 71 comes with an extremely fast aircraft nicknamed Habu. Oh my yes, very fast - faster than I'll ever go. LOL

I used to think I probably knew what I was doing. Now I know I probably know what I'm doing. Which doesn't say I always knew what I was doing or always know what I'm doing. You know what I'm saying?

RBE. Yes black like a 71! The radar absorbing paint could come in handy too. John Law seen banging his radar gun on the fender of his cruiser after you go flying by. Love it!
