I'm picking up a gray 16 next week and I want to immediately paint it black.....first bike I'll have painted since 1971 when I was 16

I ride a TDM because we couldn't get a Tenere in the states and I'm too short for thr KTM, or BMW PD

But the Twin is perfect and it will probably my last bike so I want something that makes me proud

Here's the color scheme I want, the black is easy but I can't find these decals this color

The gold/tan stripe is a 2018 colour, you may be able to get some info here and discuss with your local dealer.

I appreciate the info, the picture I saw said European scheme so I thought it was a Europe only. Being a US 2018 scheme should solve that problem
Thank you

I would not dare to paint a brand new bike, but if you ar up to it, why not considering something really unique? check this out!

Good looking bike but the kind of places I go a low key bike with a low key rider survive the longest.....blend in is the key
Not to mention I think the black looks wicked :)

Tried another Honda dealer and this time I emailed him the picture. Here's his emailed reply:


"I'm sorry mike, Honda does not let us order european modle parts and I can not get those decals for you. good luck on your search."

MeCasa said it best
I'm 64 and I ain't riding no bike with a red seat. Found a gray 16 and most importantly a black seat. I'll paint in the black European scheme as soon as I get it home. I ride third world, a red seat would and should get you killed.
