I'm interested in the 2020 Gold Wings. A little confused by the name of the Matte Black Metallic. I hope to see one live at the NYC motorcycle show in Dec . . . but can anyone tell, is it matte or is it metallic? Not sure how a color can be both. I am more a fan of metallic colors than the matte finish.

Thanks!

The metallic black is the paint itself. The matte finish is then achieved with a matte finish clearcoat on top of the metallic paint. Any color of the rainbow can be matte.
