Finally found one after a year of searching. Wanted this color as I'm not a fan of matte paints. Was a 16 hour round trip but we'll worth it from my perspective. Only 160 miles on it and a ton of accessories, some of which are still in their boxes. Just sold my 2015 GTS which was white so a little getting used to the few differences to the HPE but so far so good.

Congratulations on your purchase! It's beautiful and looks in ex-showroom condition too. I love the subtle accessories the PO added to it.

Thanks. There's so many more that were included just not sure which I am going to add. The ones I pretty sure I'm adding are the Matte black transmission cover, Oil pan with site glass, Black exhaust heat shield. I also have the Rizoma hand grips and brake levers and the led turn signals and blacked out headlight and a solo seat. I do need to add the passenger foot extenders as these aren't cutting the mustard with my better half. Just not sure if the Rizoma foot pegs will look right with the extenders. I'd hate to lose them but comfort trumps looks.

It's great to be in a position to have all these decisions to make. 100% on the oil pan with sight glass. If you're going down the blacked-out route, you might have to consider replacing the legshield trim as well.

That was my original plan to black everything out but having that legshield trim black on a lighter color does something to the bike's appearance that I'm just not as fond of as I was. I had an all white GTS before this and when seeing a racing sixties white GTS I didn't like the black legshield trip or headlight ring as it drew so much attention from your eye kind of taking away from the scooter as a whole.
