Looking at the competition, choice is limited to adventure tourer bikes if you want something other than the SX.  Personally whilst the adventure bikes are comfortable for low speed use, I find them less effective at motorway speeds.  If I can stump up the cash I'll get the H2 SX but if not then I reckon I'll have another Z1000SX when my PCP is up March 2021....or I may keep my 2018 if the trade in deal isn't right.

Whats with the blue bashing?

I have a blue bike, I really like the colour and it is the main reason i was drawn to buying an SX as immediately I saw it, I knew I wanted it.

There are a few other blue ones on this forum and I have seen two others locally in the wild.

Never had a bad comment with the colour and everyone who comments on my bike seems to remark that they like the colour...

It is funny the perceptions, I used to belong to an RS4 (car) forum many many moons ago and it was the green one that got all the stick there.

What do we think of this years colours?

Green - looks to be a different shade
Black/Silver - H2 SX type scheme it appears to be
White - Good blank canvas...

I think the blue looks good, I think people are afraid of something different.  Saying that I don't like the bright orange of KTM and wouldn't buy one for that reason.

Now Roger, that's a lovely looking thing - and hours of endless fun keeping it polished.  It would keep MDR's OCD happy for years :745: :745: :745:

Nothing wrong with the blue if you like it.

When I bought my bike last year, the dealer had a black in the showroom. I was tempted as my ZX10R had been black, but I liked the blue online.
When I mentioned this he said he had two blues in stock at the sister dealership and could get one sent over, however he strongly advised it looked different in the flesh than online and to see it myself before ordering.

Luckily he had an Emerald blazed green in the workshop, minute I saw it that was my choice.

Picked it up a week later, he had a blue outside and I did not like it at all, as he said totally different in the flesh than pics online.

Personal taste.

Yep, my experience similar to Nelix. Looking online, I liked the blue best and didn't really like the green at all. But after a visit to the showroom, where they had both to look at, I changed my mind about both of them. Went on to order a green one.
I know that looking at colours online is always a bit hit and miss, but the online blue and green colours for the 2019 models were way off.
