XR triple black?
on: December 11, 2018, 06:07:36 PM
Hi I’m really tempted to swop my current XR for the triple black. What does everybody think of the colour scheme?

I like it especially the handlebar and switch controls, looks so much better.
I’m holding off till the new model XR 2020-21 comes, hopefully, finger crossed  :305:

I really like it too and was close to getting one but the wife said she preferred the motorsport colours so to please her ive brought low mileage second hand one, the things we have to do to keep the wife happy

Great bike, but not my choice of color.

I love it and seriously considering trading in my R for one. Have a test ride booked on an XR and F850GS next week. The GS is just to keep sensible me happy, can’t see me going for anything other than a new R or XR!

The Black is really great looking, esp with the gold forks. 

I sold a black bike to get an XR, so I'm leaning toward the Ocean Blue....plus the OB and MS colors are pretty unique; there are a fair number of black bikes out there from various manufacturers.

I love it.  So much so that I've got one   :001:
Derek.  Have you seen one in the flesh?  They are a really good looking bike.
But beauty is in the eye of the beholder  as they say.  I used to have a Crosstourer..what would  I know?  :012:

I wish the Tripple Black was available last year when I bought mine, settled for an Ocean Blue though....have since fitted a lot of Ilmberger Carbon parts, so she's more black than blue now.. :028:

The Ocean blue was my original  choice but when I saw the Black in the showroom  I changed my mind pretty quickly
