That's a nice list and it looks correct to me but those colors are specific to the United States. There were variations in other countries. I know Canada got a very nice Root Beer brown for at least one year, @RaYzerman has one.


Forgive me...

It is also worth noting that there are some variations in the color names. A few examples:

2013= Blah, Boring Grey
2014= Lace Panty Pink or Lipstick Pink
2015= AssFault Gray
RaYzerman and passx like this.

Never run out of ideas, traction, and real estate at the same time.

I don't know what "Raven" is but my '08 is black. Is that consistent with your list?

I don't believe 2003 is Liquid Silver. Colorrite shows a different silver too.

2008 Raven black bikes should show some glitter (pearl) in the sun. If it doesn't, it's been repainted.

I see what you see on Colorrite. My source was the Yamaha website.

I was just looking at an image of the 2007 in Black Cherry. It looks like something that might be called root beer. I like it a lot, probably my favorite color.

It was also called (I think) Dark Red Metallic. It really did look fantastic and in person did not look much like the root beer brown of the Canadian bike. I thought it was probably the finest color ever painted on a Sport Tourer.

My Black Cherry '07 was the fastest colour, followed by Root Beer of course, not like those slow '14 Lipstick Pinks.....
Rest of World (EU, Canada) I believe had two colour choices each year for 2014 up.. EU got matte silver a couple of years ago, which has now made it here.
