I kinda think that has something to do with who they want to sell it to...

IMHO, . . . . don't think so. Just not my cup of tea.

And it probably won't be needing a reflective vinyl kit, either. It looks like that color alone should get you plenty of notice and conspicuity!

Do you have a MotoReflective Reflective Kit (Link) for the rear of your BMW?

Well, it did handle those twisties in the parking lot pretty well. lurk

The music in the video should give you a clue that it's not being marketed to older riders.

BMW isn't afraid to take chances on something different.

Let's revisit this thread in two years and discuss the sales data. grin

Bill,

I don't see the 1600 as Havana Gold.
There are other u toobs out there and color
seems to have a greenishly putrid echo, on my monito


If my mind wanders, should I follow it?

I'm seeing it as dried mustard.

Maybe it just does not photograph well. Many of BMW's recent colors change appearance in different light, so I'm withholding judgement until I can see it in person.

I'm kinda leaning towards calling it Baby Poop Yellow. The first few poo's coming out of a newborn all all kinds of fun colors.

I'd have to go Henry Ford on this unit. You can have any color as long as it's black...

Concur, or if you had been raised around cattle you wouldn’t see anything but calf sh__ yellow. Worse than Phoenix yellow that they offered on the E46 M3
