Does anyone have a favorite Super, SuperSport, or SuperTech color for 2024? I can't decide on a color I like the best. They're all kind of meh. If I had to choose, I'd take the Blu Energico Matt but then again it is a bit dark.

Yes! But what does my (or anyone else's) taste have to do with your decision?

But why not GTS Classic? E.g. Beige glossy or GTV beige Matt

Absolutely nothing. Just curious if anyone had a clear winner in their minds. The beige is nice.

The orange on the super sport but I need to see it in person. Overall, the 2023-24 colors are disappointing. I'm eagerly waiting to see the 2025 GTS colors, hoping for less matte and more colors that "pop".

I have the Matte Blue 2023 GTS300 Supertech. I was not sure about the matte either, but I do like it. I want to get another one for Florida but am going to wait for the new models to see if they expand the color options and add any new feature so looks like a next year purchase. I will say I love the GTS300 its very quick and rides so solid. I like the Supertech because of the navigation and turn by turn on the screen. I do use the Navigation quite a bit. I added the top box and fly screen to it as well. It's so much fun to ride.

Great photo! Of the 2023 colors, this is the one I'd go for if I can find some remaining stock at my local dealers. A question for you on the fly screen.. it looks great but do you notice any difference in wind deflection? I'm planning on using the 300 to get over the Bay Bridge here in San Francisco and a little considered about wind buffering at 60-70 mph

yes, here is what I noticed because I drove it for a while without the fly screen. It pushes the wind up to my neck area with fly screen. I am 6 feet tall so that is where it hits me.

Without the fly screen it pushes the wind to your chest. I feel the ride is better with it on because the wind hits a smaller area helmet and neck area. Without it- it hits a broader chest area and on longer rides makes you feel more fatigued. I would recommend it for that reason. If you really want to push wind off you totally look at a bigger windshield.

Can't help you with the 2024 models (not familiar with the colors), but I love the color of my 2020 GTS.

That being said, my next one will be white like my 2012 GTS was. I just feel the Grigio Dolomiti, and all dark colors, blend in with the roadway too much and I would like something a little more visible.

I agree it does blend a bit and with the top case I feel it hides the break light a bit more. To counter act that... I added the Break-free light on the back of my helmet for extra security. It seems to work good for $150 worth the added security in my mind.

Each to his own on Matt vs gloss. I like my 2023 Nero Opaco, all three of the GTS I have owned have been satin or Matt finish.

Hi there

This is human resources from the GTV department.
The data is in and the statistics show that our matte sand colour is our favourite.

Don't scoot the messenger..

If you're thinking about resale value, red, black or blue. They tend to age well, and fewer people hate those colors. There are people who love lime green Kawasakis. And there are more people who hate lime green Kawasakis. So if you have a lime green Kawasaki, there is a sizeable part of the population that wants that exact bike but won't even consider buying your bike when you decide to sell it, because they hate the color. Works like that with Vespas too.
When was the last time you went into a dealership and saw a brand new three year old bike sitting on the floor in a color you liked?
There was one model of Kawasaki (I use them because they are famous for picking colors nobody likes) it was a naked bike with a 1 liter engine, and they couldn't sell it in lime green. So the next year, they brought it out in bright orange. Four years later we had four year old green and orange bikes sitting in crates, and when we advertised them with a blowout price, people called to see if we had any of the black ones left.

I guess I'm officially in the matte club now! Just signed papers on a 2023 and picking her up on Friday. "Giddy" is the only appropriate word I can think of.

Love the matte gray on my new 2024 super sport. I almost went for the wacky green color but decided I might not like it after time had passed.

The wife's glossy dark blue Primavera is the real head turner though.

I get so many compliments on my 300 GTS "Classico" in Beige Avvolgente! It's really kinda weird. I mean, I LOVE the color -- it's one of the reasons I bought it. But I've been surprised by the number of compliments.

I usually tell people that, to me, it's the color of the inside of a 3 Musketeers candy bar. They invariably get hungry!

Same here. I went into the shop planning to buy the light blue model, but then I saw the beige model and loved it. Only problem is it isn't visible enough. Since getting it I've had a couple of close shaves where drivers didn't see me. Guess I need a bright helmet and/or jacket.

But I've added a touch of red with Bitubo shock red springs and a red and black Piaggio badge on the horn cover.

I had my heart set after weeks of consideration and went to the shop to buy the matte black and then I saw the orange. I went home with the orange!
