Available Colours

Your roadster, your style.

The newly designed engine spoilers and radiator cover bring a fresh look. Whatever style you choose, you'll enjoy your roadster and enjoy every tour in your own way.

    Black Storm Metallic

    For a classic look, the standard model is painted in Black storm metallic – front-wheel cover, front spoiler, tank side trim and the rear side panels receive this subtle paintwork. The black details complement the harmonious overall look of the roadster: main and rear frame, brake calipers, radiator cover and the seat.

    Style HP

    Without compromise: the Style HP emphasizes the dynamic and sporty side with the colour set Light white, Racing blue metallic and Racing red. The golden brake calipers as well as the engine spoiler, radiator cowls and fuel tank covers, all of which are made of stainless steel, provide deliberate accents. The Style HP also includes the Core Screen Sport in the TFT display, which superimposes a rev counter in a prominent position and provides information about the lean angle.

    Style Exclusive

    Your Roadster cuts a fine figure on every tour with the Style Exclusive. All trim panel components are painted in Pollux metallic matt. The golden brake calipers, radiator cover and stainless steel tank cover emphasize the elegance – for the unique appearance.

    Option 719 Stardust Metallic

    Individuality has a name: Option 719 Stardust metallic. The paintwork including the painted décor perfectly accents the roadster and gives the bike a maximum of individuality. This is emphasized by stainless steel components: tank cover, radiator cover and engine spoiler. Additional contrast is provided by the dark brown Option 719 seat, which is available as an optional accessory.
