I got the last one available so no choice but Silver DCT. I'd loved a HRC manual, but silver was my second choice.

The Ultra Standard, as far as I can see is identifiable by the indicators externally (oh my god I am obsessed!), because they're incandescent rather than LED.

This was given to me by my dealer today, says he received it yesterday, I guess I'm first on the list for a 2017, wonder what color options we will have and I hope they offer cruise control.

That's the 'poverty spec' one. I think all the N.America ones have LED indicators

Wow... I think you might be right. I looked through all the current press photos on Twitter/Instagram and they all have the incandescent front indicators!

Also, I noticed that there is no black option in the US?

That means the Canadian bikes are different.

I thought I read that US regulations don't allow LED indicators? I seem to remember a similar conversation in the GS forums...
