By the way, Poseidon, I really like that blue.  I have a PDP Drumset in a similar color, just a heavier metallic flake!

Totally agree, that blue is beautiful! Wish mine was that color...

It flips back the correct way when I click on it. Post up some pics of it in the sun, and out of the trailer. I'd like to see the difference in the color of the 2018 vs the 2016. I know they are different colors, but they look almost the same on Kawasaki's pictures.

How long before you take her out for the first ride?

Only the 2018 has the green pin-striping in the USA/CA (and 2017 only in the EU).  So it can't be a 2016 (at least, not if that is factory original)

Kawasaki used the same image on their website for both the 2016 and 2018 models. (See first image below). Second image is an actual US 2016 which had the green piping. (I almost bought that one). The last image is of a 2018 that I just found on a google search. That picture wasn't available back when I was trying to figure out the difference between the 2 colors.

Finally got her out on Sunday for about 60 miles. Was 45 degrees here in Indiana those heated grips are the bomb! Havent got any good pics yet. It looks more like the color in the second pic above, dark charcoal.

That is the worst part of buying a new bike this time of year... getting the time and weather to sync up to where you can get some riding time in. I'm still fighting to get my break in miles completed.

Actually it's the 3rd (last) pic above. Does anyone know what the earlier color is called? Black Spark Metallic is what they call the 2018 but it sure looks different than the others.

Took a short ride on Sunday. Was around 40 degrees. I was impressed with the wind protection on my legs. Proper!
