Didn't know it was getting to the US. I thought you guys have red, grey or black and here in the UK/EU we have the choice of red, black or tricolour.

I was initially annoyed that we didn't get the tricolor in the US, as that was my favorite. But actually the red one is growing on me, so I might have ended up with that one anyway...

I won't mind having only red, only downside to that is this being a Honda.. red is likely to be one of the most popular colors.

fair, but this being the Africa Twin, I think HRC tricolor might give ol' red a good run

What's the purpose of restricting colors in different markets? Not sure I get the point of it... just import a few of the other colors too... is there more to it than that?

How do we get a campaign started to convince Honda to bring over the Tri-Color?

Doubt it. They're probably limiting the color simply to add flavour(marketing) in the following year as they don't expect to sell that many in the US when compared to Africa and Europe markets.
