We've seen the black

Its sinister, its badass, its awesome

What other colors would you like to see?

I would support a Harley in the traditional orange and black color scheme. I don't really think that Harley needs to offer very many colors though. People expect Harleys to be black.

Blue, red, white would be a nice start IMO. HD sells other bikes in colors other than "any color as long as it's black". As soon as the "bad ass" crowd has bought one, then what...

I'm coming at this from the "outside" as I have never owned a Harley. Which IMO is the buyer Harley should be going after.

Black is always nice but I would be really interested to see the HD street come out in red. Just something about that color would help bring out the contour and lines on the bike.

We can always hope...:D To me, black on black on black just looks "unfinished", kind of like someone rattle canned primer on something and ran out of money.

I think that HD would make an orange Street 500/750 before it makes a red one. Maybe a deep purple would work. I just don't associate some colors with Harleys.

Yeah I agree, it seems more of a move HD would do.
Plus with it being available in a lot of nations there's probably a wide range of unique colors we'll see.

Harley is advertising it as a "Dark Custom". What colors other than black lend themselves to that?

I remember you could buy a Sportster in a dark forest green metallic circa 1982 or so.

I could see a deep purple being called "dark custom". I could also see HD making an orange color choice since that is their other brand color. I think people would have few complaints if only black was offered though.

That brings up a point I've been trying to make as far as the demographic segment HD is attempting to sell the Street to. Why does it have to be a "dark" anything?:confused: The Street is never going to sell to the old guard HD rider, in fact I'm sure they will shun and ridicule them AND anyone who rides one. If HD is really serious about broadening it's customer base they need to drop the old HD image of black this and black that. IMO it is HD's single minded, tunnel vision view of ALOT of potential new to HD motorcycle buyers/riders that could possibly doom the Street's appeal.

Just my .02 worth. BTW, I'd like a red one.:D

I know what you mean. it just depends on what the suits at the hd headquarters want as "their" brand image.
