I like to know this too...

I'd like to see silver, white or black... I tried to find a new 2010 (which was Black) but none of the dealers within a 300 mile radius could get one. Black seems to be the most popular color since the sold out of their inventory....

Unhappy Life in the Safe Lane!

I'll guess BLACK! Boring, but SAFE! No offense intended to 2010 black bike owners, just a personal observation.

I hope they bring the sexy burnt orange to america that the 650R has for the versys.

I would see a body panel switch out in my future.

they must have used a different paint on the 2011's.

My tank is not matte black. It is like a pearl black with tiny little metal flakes in the paint.

I havenít seen the 2011 up close but what youíre describing sounds like it might be the same as my 2010 Ė which is sort of like Graphite or Metallic Flat Black. It looks pretty flat from a distance (especially against the high gloss fairing panels) but up close it has a very fine metal flake in it.

FWIW, my knees have polished the flat off the sides a bit. Itís now kinda shiny..fades..to..flat...

yea i would never call that matte black... matte is a texture/finish that implies no gloss.

That, just like mine, has the sparkles all in it. Its more of a pearl.

BTW this is a very dumb topic... lets get back to thinking about the color of the next V like the OP intended.

Even though i have a black KZ it's never my first color choice.
