I just bought a blue 109 haven't got it yet. Not really looking for new bike but had a Intruder 1500 with a leaky recalled gas tank with no tanks around to fix it. Sounds like you guys love your 109's. Did I make the right choice? I went with the blue one didn't see it in person now I am thinking I should have went black. How does the blue look in person for any of you that have one?

My dealer had one of each and I thought the blue was by far the nicest color. Looks the most "custom". Pops out the most in the sunlight. Makes a good contrast with the chrome to make those parts stand out. Chicks really dig it too.

I just didn't see the charm in buying such a far-out, radically new design and going with a ho-hum color like black. The blue really shouts "Hey, I'm different!" to me at least.

All of them are nice..I have silver...I think you see more "lines" with a light color...with the sun shining and a few coats of wax...it looks "Blinggy" .

The black actually has a lot of metalic in it. I used it for the base on the new paint. I added gold flake over it but you can see the depth with the candy over it.


It is a great bike you should love it!!!

All the colors are nice. I have a silver one. The bike itself is whats impressing. Its sleek look and outragous power is what is amazing. Good choice in geting one you will enjoy it

We have the option of black or black down here.
I haven't seen the blue then obviously but was considering a paint scheme sort of similar to the Cobra show bike with a centre section down the tank and rear guard (leave front) in the blue with a silver stripe between the blue and black.
Trying to imagine how it would look.
Not really into flames so looking for something hopefully stylish.

well i have a blue one also and it is hard to say how it looks except for WOW when i first seen it i really thought it was a purple not blue but depends on how the sun hits it the color will dance if that make sense i think it was lamonster who call it a bpurple or something like that..........but everyone including HD riders really love the color of my bike hope that helps..............if you like a color that flops you will really like it

Burple is the best!! I've had mine for little over a week now and EVERYONE Loves the color. It is usually one of the first things out of their mouth once they stop drooling! I hope you like attention cause you're gonna get it! Can't take this bike anywhere without it causing a scene!! :bigthumbsup:
