why more chrome???

I just picked up my BRAND NEW 09 RoadStar. Its just a black RS, however it is chromed out from the bottom of the forks to the top of the handle bars I mean everything. My Harley buddies cant understand why Yamaha came with so much chrome and theirs didnt. Anyway I went to another Dealer yesterday and they had a red 09 and it didnt have all of the chrome and I was wondering why. they both were basic bikes with no add ons (bags, windows or backrest). I thought the only difference in models were factory add ons.

There are 4 versions of your scoot:
Roadstar
Roadstar-S
Silverado
Silverado-S

The "S's" have more chrome than the non-S's

Well you know the old saying " if it don't go then chrome it". LOL. The hd guys have to pay through the back side to chrome thier bikes out.
