This is like when a car company releases a performance model with only a standard transmission, and the feedback they get from their dealers is that there's a lot of interest in the car but a lot of shoppers are turned off by lack of an automatic.
When they refresh or update and make it automatic only, the dealers respond all the enthusiasts who look at it walk away after learning there's no stick shift.
The silver 250 exhaust design was the ugliest thing in the world and almost anything else would be an improvement. Painting it black is an improvement. Replacing it with a chrome tube is a bigger improvement.
You just cannot win.
