Seems the most popular color at Polaris Industries two motorcycle brands is matte gray and matte black. I'm kind of surprised they kept the chrome exhaust on this one though.

Someone who knows these guys; PLEASE give them a color wheel.

All the best,

C'mon, guys. I'm sure it looks better in person. I personally think the blacked out motor and chrome exhaust are a nice contrast. But still not trading my Kingpin for one.

There is a black out kit if you will that you have to pay for of course in typical Polaris fashion. Nice bike. I like it.

I like it but isn't the blacked out theme getting a little old now? Liked broggyr said, seat needs to be back further and for me the boards need to go forward just to fit me.

I generally hate flat paint, but man, just about anything looks great on the Indian. And having less chrome to maintain is a big plus in my book!

The chrome pipes look just right imo. I do like that there is just the right touch of chrome to not make the bike just a big blacked out blur.

I really like it!

I do wonder how durable and scratch resistant that flat paint is.

AND they got rid of the big ugly chrome bra on the fairing. Now I really love it!
