2016 Skunk?

Just dropped my '15 off for service in Little Rock, went into the showroom to find the wife and what do I see?
2016 110 SE in 1 of 400 paint set? skunk livery, all blacked out except engine. Tall black bars and controls,

A mere $61,000 plus tax and title.

Wife says I can't have it, didn't have my phone so no pic I'll try to grab one when I pick mine up next week. They say it is factory 1 of 145 I believe may have been 150 anyone else seen one?

They had one just as you've described in the HD tent at the Daytona Speedway on display. It's a nice looking black and white paint scheme but it's not a Skunk. They only made the Skunk in 2012.

The first Skunk they offered had me . I would have purchased one but I could not live with the skulls. I just have no use for them on a bike.
But give credit where it is due the bike was sharp .

Ok I will bow to more knowledge than I, it is indeed a nice looking paint scheme, but $62,000 for a bike?

Of course I will need a picture to accept your bow. 😉

Dealers that get those paint sets have to spend a certain amount to accessorize a bike in order to get that limited edition paint set. In doing so the price goes up exponentially for a potential customer. Even if you have money to burn that would be a bad purchase. Some big VP will walk in and decide he just has to have it and cut a check. Happens more often than most of us think. Stupid price for what that bike is.

I saw the bike on Landers FB page. I wasn't sure how much they wanted for it and I was kinda curious, but 61K is crazy money for that bike. I've got an appointment to have a service done on the 21st of this month before I head down to FL to ride to the Keys, so I'm pretty sure I'll have a chance to look at it in person unless someone as a ton of money burning a hole in their pocket between today and the 21st. lol

Here is a pic of the bike

Looks better in person, but that's the bike. If you are in Hot Springs we should get together one weekend, I'm in Star City.

I still like the real skunk paint scheme a lot more than this color shop version.
