You live in Montana? You want a '14 or '15 with cruise control. Trust me.

The motor on the '14+ is smoother with better fueling too, among other nice updates.

Nope. Matte Gray or the Red, both with gold forks. And I don't think it's white, more of a matte silver, although, oddly, on the UK site that color scheme is called Race Blu.
