black or titanium?

On the 2017 Versys 650 LT if you were buying which of those 2 colors would you choose?

Titanium all the way!

I'm biased too. There's a lot of black bikes out there, not many titanium!

I think I would choose the titanium but truthfully neither really set themselves apart for me. The black one has green accent decals, is that right? Might make it a bit visually interesting.

As you only gave two choices - I would pick titanium, but my preference is to be MUCH MORE visible, which is why I have a red, and a green Versys.

I would find a leftover or used burnt orange or kawasaki green one if those are the only choices in a '17.

That's what I did last year. Was looking forward to having the integrated gear position indicator but when I realized the 17's were essentially grey or black I went with an orange 2016.

The matte titanium on the '16 Vs is nice. You can get close to it with the matte silver on the 2018 Ninja 1ks.

Original poster here. I bought a 2017 recently in Titanium. The dealer had 1 black and 1 titanium on hand , both lt models. My previous 2 bikes were gloss black and I wanted something different. They both looked good but glosss black is no real easy to keep looking clean. That said I do like the titanium color better on the Versys but both are fine. After choosing the titanium I was just curious as to what others preferred.
