Granted, I don't spend much time in bike shops, but I do notice the relative monochromaticity of modern bikes when riding with friends.
When I attended the 2015 NAHBS show, I was struck by the number of gray bikes. Most were titanium, so it's more forgivable, but it was still a bit sad.

On the plus side, if a person is willing to get a custom paint job, the opportunities for color are vast! Here's a shot of a bike by Shamrock Cycles, which won the prize for Best Paint. They typically display some really creative paint schemes....
