Having just installed matte black highway bars two or three months ago, first I’ve ever had on a bike in that color, I’m finding they show marks very easily. I’ve already spray-painted them once but they just got more marks again.
Apparently I manage to brush up against things all the time. Including hitting a car tire and bending one, and tipped over just last week onto the other one.

I had put chrome ones on my old Yamaha and scrapes on them never really showed much. Not compared to how this black does anyway.

It’s kind of funny because I thought all I would be doing is cleaning bugs off, not attempting to hide scrape marks.
I’m just real bad about squeezing too close to things.
Also not sure about the quality of the Chinese ones I have, I just think if I were to ride through a tall-grass field enough there would be some bare metal showing.

I'm a huge fan of Chrome and I'd say Black for that bike.

Black is definitely the right choice for that bike!

On that bike.... Black chrome... durable, looks good & easy bug removal.
