The contrast of black and chrome defines a Harley.

IMO A scoot that looks like it was dipped in black paint doesn't have a sole.

If your scoot is very black. Go with the chrome exhaust. If you have chrome then post some photos!

My opinion is go by motor. If yours is as black as bottom pick, go with black, if it's more like top pic or no black on it all, go chrome. I personally don't like chrome, so my preference is black. But if I had an engine with no black on it, I'd most likely go the chrome route anyways.

All a matter of personal preference. But, since you asked, i have a 2006 883R which has the blacked out engine, bars, forks, etc, and i decided, against my first thought, that the chrome pipes look better to me.

Default I voted black...

... because i like the punches of light coming from
the perforations.


i think the contarast is what makes it interesting... little bits of light
coming out of the dark.

Clearly, I'm inhaling more than i should.
