I will they offered the Orange or green here in the states. Guess I will do with the black and white  :008:
  Agreed, but.  My wife already has a nickname for the bike "The Flying Nun"  These pictures were taken from a dealer 70 miles away.

Looks great! That is an awesome nickname. A friend of mine went and sat on my bike this afternoon. I can't wait!

Hi Jerry, congrats for your new purchase. No other color choice for US?

It kinda looks like a police bike livery, doesn't it? Actually, the SE might make a very good police bike and Kaw may have this in mind. There is certainly a long tradition with the '70s Kaw 1000 police bikes, which are well remembered by police motor patrols.

But yes, as of now this is the only livery offered in the US.

Unfortunately not. I actually like white motorcycles, but Jamie would love to have some color. I am just to impatient to wait to see if the green or orange is coming stateside next year. I want one now! :)

Well Jerry, your local paint & body shop is always waiting with a rainbow of color options if you want to pull off some of the plastics and take em in. But I expect the underlying qualities of the bike to leave you not wanting to change a thing.  :notsure:

Yeah I am thinking I will be just fine with the color. Besides I already like that Black and white color combo.

Congrats to all lucky ppl taking delivery this week. My bike is still somewhere in transition. If not coming weekend I will get it the week after.

I came back from Montreal show on Friday and oh boy this bike looks awesome! I played with the menu for hours and got quite familiar with different options in the settings. Electronic suspension works like a charm!  :028:

In the meantime we are burred under heavy snow. More is on the way..  :124: Next few weeks temperatures are diving back to negative 20s centigrade and most I could do is, like saultguy said, start my snowblower to smell burning gasolina...  :745:

Not to worry Mr, Ford, Somewhere there is Spring trying to sprout. :mfr_lol: Same issue here in Colorado. Got about a 4 day window to be able to get my bike delivered before the cold and snow set back in. Spent the day De Farkeling my 2015 Versys and V-Strom 650, getting them ready for the trade this week.
