Candy Neptune Blue Versys? What other colors do you want to see?

I really like the Candy Neptune Blue color on the 2010 Concours; in fact, I'd like to see it on the Versys. For those who don't know what Candy Neptune Blue looks like, here's a link: http://www.bikeland.org/story.php?storyID=50411



What other colors / color combinations would you like to see on the Versys?

Yeah, that’s a statistic sample size of 1, category “anecdotal evidence”, but there it is.

I would have bought Candy Burnt Orange over my green if it had been available.

I want the orange that they offered in Holland. It's not the "Burnt" orange, more of a brigt "Safety Orange". I'm still on the fence whether I should have all my green bits painted that color or not. I have a friend who owns a body shop that will paint all the pieces for $400.

the blue is nice, but when you look at it real quick it is too close to black...

i like my 2008 RED myself... the red and black are a good combination

My '62 Bonneville was "candy apple tangerine" and silver; my '72 Corvette was metallic orange; the first Versys I tried (a demo '07) was burnt orange.

I'd trade for orange in a New York minute!

Failing that, the metallic yellow that the V-strom came in a few years ago....

I have a 2007 Candy Burnt Orange, but I really like the look of European's 2009 Pearl Wildfire Orange with black frame and wheels.

I love Ferrari's Abu Dhabi blue:



Ferrari's Giallo Modena yellow would be nice too...

Black for '09 and not a two-toned black for '10 (matte black tank with shiny cowl looks cheap).

I prefer all my bikes in black.

I'm with blackhammer; I think a nice charcoal gray would be good; darker than the silvery gray they sold in europe. I bought a RED 08 used, not because I loved the red, but because the price was right. I'm going to try to paint mine this winter, but it'll be some time before I can get it done. I'll get some pictures up when I do.

Best Factory color? Candy Burnt Orange. Definitely.

Yes I like the Neptune blue. Would like to see them bring back more than one color choice. Neptune Blue & Red do it for me, and please, please, please, ditch those black wheels and frame.

I don't understand why they go to the trouble to offer it in a variety of colors for different markets. If you are going to offer it in different colors, why not offer all those colors to everyone? Pisses me off I couldn't get a yellow one. But I do like my green.
