Wow! That's a difficult choice. Black or White...I'll flip a coin. Even the 2012 Kingpin had more choices than that. You could get White, White, or White. Victory seems to have lost all of their creative skills!

Keep in mind that more colors always translates into higher MSRP.

Anyway, I have a thing for white motorcycles - sooner or later I will have enough cash to spare to paint my XR in white.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Why? They seem to charge more for colors on other bikes as does Harley. Not sure why that would raise the price of a black one?

Using strictly hypothetical numbers, if a manufacturer is set to produce 1,000 vehicles, and they are all black, their cost is lower than to produce 250 black vehicles, 100 red, 300 blue, 150 orange, and 200 white. For starters, they're using less black paint, so buying less paint, incurs a higher cost. Manufacturing and coordinating smaller runs for each color also add up. Then it comes to storing higher volume of parts, and vehicle inventory at the dealer level.

Black bikes are generally faster than any other color.

The exception to that would be the blue ones. Much like a flame, they are the hottest one.

Black's the fastest, Blue's the hottest, White's the coolest, Red's the sexyest... What did I miss? Oh, yeah, Boardwalk's only available in Black and White.
