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.
I know what you mean. it just depends on what the suits at the hd headquarters want as "their" brand image.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? 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.
That is a good possibility, I mean for the brand themselves to bring in more money with a lower cost bike. They can generate revenue through accessories and add ons.I have a hunch that the base model will be just all black(and red as per some websites) and those 2-tone demo bikes they displayed like the orange/black combo or the red/white or the white/blue stripe will be marketed as accessories in the form of paint jobs. Why make it stock when people are ready to pay extra
