Asphalt and Rubber claims starting price of $15,995. There's no way in hell this is going to be a $18K base price bike, that puts it right there with the Diavel. Wouldn't make any sense.

Due to the "extreme" styling, I think the black/orange one is a nice combination. To my eyes, the black one looks "sharp" and the orange/white one looks "flashy." Different strokes.
