I really like the color myself but I think you are right that it will be discounted later in the year on the left overs. I seen two Jap dealerships back in Sept. when I was looking at my next bike that had the same color gree Kawasaki Vaqueros on heavy discounts. Had them listed for around $14K and I almost bought one but got my XR for cheaper plus the Vaquero seemed top heavy and a little small in the leg room dept.

OEM short windshield, passenger backrest, crash bars, saddle bag bars, heated grips, vinyl closeouts, tachometer, ambient temp. WD lay down licence plate.
The midnight metallic flame version will put this thing in also ran status while it's available. I actually like the color and have seen it in person. But I think after a year or so I'd be ready for a change. I would like to see a red version, maybe next year. Hopefully Victory will have some factory custom paint schemes each year going forward.
The denim colors (red -n- orange) with blacked out motors will always be the desired trim in my opinion. When I first seen the antifreeze green I thought I had to have it. In time I grew out of it. Still lovin Black and chrome. Lookin forward to what Vic's gonna bring to the table.
