I think this is the Amber Whiskey colour in the Iron as seen on the launch of 2 Rivers, Pune today along with Anoop Prakash, MD, Harley...

I personally think such colour's novelty wears out soon and you will be happier with the Black, matt or otherwise, in the long run. And I think now all the bikes are 2014 model year builds. On a lighter note, I personally would never have gone for such a 'girly' colour on a bike whose name is 'Iron'.

Yes this is the Amber Whiskey. And Mr. Reddy is in Pune (or Goa) for the same.

All the bikes that are coming in now are 2014 models.

This color actually doesn't look girly in real. There are cars in a similar shade (if not the exact) - they don't look girly! Thankfully its not pink.

Appreciate your choice sir. But I decided to choose the Amber one over the Black. Had lined up both next to each other, the unanimous choice was Amber Whiskey!

Shall we schedule a ride for 14th early morning ? I know 15th would have been ideal, but I am leaving B'lore very early morning that day

Of course we will ride before that as well !!

Best Regards & Ride Safe

There is something called "escalation and bugging" Used that to some extent. ;-)

Congratulations. Welcome to the HOG.

Like the color. I'm sure it will be even more stunning in daylight.

Hope you like to wax and polish

Cheers

Ride Safe.

Thanks Wolfy! Yep even I was surprised as all I did was write a mail to the CEO and he was really helpful!

Wax and Polish - There is a friend of mine who has a passion for this (Err.. Partha - you seeing this?) So would be outsourcing this part to him!

Shub,

Please SMS/PM the deatils of this guy. I think Bonnie need a bit of TLC after the 6 months hibernation. I think I better outsource this as time is at a premium these days specially when I am in B'lore
