Default Crimson paint is being replaced

I read a post this morning on another Victory enthusiast website that was a little surprising. Blair's Victory Polaris posted that if you want any of the Victory models that have Crimson paint you may want This order now. According to Blair's the Crimson paint is being replaced by Sunset Red. He didn't show a sample so until somebody finds something it's up in the air.

Maybe this will answer the question about whether or not the 2012's will include a red XC. I know at least one person that posted on here was put off because he couldn't get a 2011 XC in red.

Maybe this will make our Crimson XR's rare since they're changing the color 8 months into 2011 production.

That's something HD does too. At different times of the year they make certain colors available. I guess for some folks it pays to wait. HD announces this at the beginning of their model year though.

I'm still waiting for them to make a white XR so I can sell my black one, and get a white one.

For now I ride my black stallion, but I do dream of riding a white one.

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

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

CR: You would probably be money ahead to just pull the tins and have the current one repainted in the White and Silver.

CR,
Bbob is correct, new paint will cost you thousands less than depreciation. If you figure 25% depreciation (which is probably low) plus any more you payed for down payment plus close to a year in payments (probably about $350 per month) your are looking at about $8200 blowing away in the wind. You can get a damn good paint job for $1000 or less.

I have a neighbor that owns a body shop. He qouted $450 for a 2 tone paint job on my friends V-Star with a clearcoat. This was with my friend doing disassembly/assembly himself and bringing the tins in. With the V-Star (1100 Classic) that price included front/rear fenders, tank and side panels.
