hum. I'm kinda the other way around. I thought it was ugly on paper, but i saw one on the show room floor and kinda liked it. But the black/green is defenitly better. From what i have seen about the ss, it looks sweet. Something i think i would get for Michigan trails if i could afford it.
The SS looks sweet, technology wise. On paper, the "orange" sled looked great, but in person, all I can say is YUCK. Now, the black "SS" with the green decals looks sweet, gonna order one in March if they still have the same color scheme.... anybody wanna by a 1999 ZL500 Carb?
I picked up my ZL 800 SS a few weeks ago. I rode a early release 600 Molten last March just didn't like the color, ordered black. But I was not crazy about the gray belly pan/side panels so I changed them to black @ $110 for both.
I thought the black looked great(my first Cat-I switched from Polaris) and didn't love the green, so ordered the Cross Country in black. Fired up for that thing. Not worried about the snow-we wouldn't really be riding much until Christmas anyway, so just a little later start than usual. Have a great season, everybody!
I don't like the molten either. A buddy just bought an 800 ss. I saw a 600 ss in the showroom last year, yuk. I don't really like the green ss either because I don't like the grey belly pan and the graphics are really plain. I still might buy one, but if I did I would do what KSZRT did and change it to black belly pan. I'm really torn though, because I want a new sled and I like the SS, but my dealer has a black CC edition and it is sweet looking. It doesn't have any green in it, but the decals are orange and yellow. I saw in some accessory catalogs with ZRT 600 with orange accessories, and it looked sweet. I'm soooo torn, so many cool sleds and I don't know what to buy.
Don't feel bad about your choice. I have a 02' Pantera in blk cherry (not that I had a choice), and from what I have read, people really seem to hate the color. I love the sled and have no problem with the color. So who cares, drove by a house yesterday that was the color of bright banana cream pie...can't believe anyone would choose such hideous color. Sooo to each their own.
I to thought the molton looked better in the brochuere, than in real life, went with the black/green ss, only have a little over a 100 miles on it, some alfalfa field running, and ditchs, and some lake riding, however this machine IS the BEST riding sled i have ever ridden!! Also installed a grip'n ripe risor and vibration dampner, waiting for snow to ride and try it out,,,

I don't really care whether others like it or not... they aren't making my payments!
HP, I took mine on the trails for the first time today. Overall I'd say that so far I'm somewhat disappointed. I bottomed the back out HARD, and the bumps weren't real big. Maybe it's the track slapping the tunnel, I don't know. The sled sits so low when I'm on it that the mud flap sits into the snow. I think I'm gonna have to adjust the rear to make it a LOT stiffer. The front's a little too soft for my liking too. I can't seem to keep both skis on the snow through corners.
