Interesting...I assumed the Desert Khaki was not popular at all when I got mine, as the identical model in red was $800 more at that dealer. Before I got mine I wasn't crazy about the tan, but saw one on the interstate one day and just seeing it like that, I thought it looked pretty good, definitely not a color you see often. I've really come to like mine, especially after painting the rear rack and tank trim pieces black, and putting on matching tan reflective wheel rim stripes. It's a long shot, but someone that wanted to go tan might find someone on here with a tan that would swap tank and beak for their color.
