What a strange question? How can you ask others what colour you should buy.....bit like asking who you should date or marry!
We all like different things, buy the one you like most.
BTW
I chose the red over black or white lol

I also was reluctant to purchase the red Tri-color, however the cost savings was such that I was able to buy all of my initial upgrades with the savings. I purchased a center stand, blackdog skid plate, radiator guard, brake reservoir guard, foot pegs, crash bars and rear rack with the savings. I hate the tri-color seat, and plan to replace it with a black Corbin low seat in the near future.

I went with a tall Rally seat concepts seat (black). The stock tri-color seat is horrendous...the white turns yellow by looking at it.

All these comments on people liking the red and bitching about the tri colours makes me happy I just bought a 2017 cherry red but 0 miles on it, for £9000 instead of 11,500, plus got top box, centre stand and full Givi crash bars thrown in for 500 fitted instead of 1000. Overall a £3000 saving, which from what Iíve seen, would more than cover a full oem swap to a different colour if I wanted to lol. Plus Iím hoping the red wonít be as attractive to thieves looking for parts of the tricolours haha
