    Just bought a 2019 Triple Black with 788 miles from new. A year and a half old.  Had not even had the first service done....Story is this was the original owners first bike and he scared the heck out of himself a couple of times and parked it until he got over the embarrassment and traded it in on a nice slow Harley :005:
    Love this bike
    Glad to see all the great info here.

    Welcome.  I too am getting a low mile 2021 red in color.....310 miles.  I really wanted that triple black, it looks so bad ass.

    The bike looks great in grey (gray 😁) and sounds like you might have saved a few $$ by buying from the previous owner 😎.My XR is the standard red colour but I was toying with the idea of changing it to grey but hesitant to repaint and not sure about wrapping it.

    Not grey. The Triple Black is black painted parts, black handlebar and black wheels.  The grey is the plastic part that wraps the rear bottom of the fuel tank for protection.
    My 2019 was acquired for $14250 plus ttl. I did not like the seating position on the new version so looked for a clean 2018/19. Too much of a confining bucket on the new version.  The new one reminded me of the Ducati Multistrada rider position which does not work for my 6'4" height either.

    😊 Agh Triple Black and not gray/grey.....I will book an appointment with the Opticians today to get my eyes tested 😁.But am still thinking of grey for my bike.
