Yeah, I love the color too - which is why I bought an 07. I'm a little embarrassed to say that I decided which year bikes I was looking for based on the color that I liked bestChuck, love the pictures ! That 07 maroon (?) is just stunning, I will never understand why Yamaha hasn’t put it on more years ! Really got my motor running when that came out in 07, and it is red (sorta) so it’s gotta be one of the very fastest !
