Make mine a yellow and black bumble bee like one of King Kennys old TZs, extra boner points if you fit a 4 cyl 2 stroke to it!

Uninspiring? Then why can't you find either at a YAMAHA dealership? SOLD OUT! A whole lot of someones liked that scheme.

Hate to bust anyones dream of becoming a consultant to YAMAHA, but the colors of the R-1 have been selected for several months. As a former R&D employee of "Big Blue", I know that this is just a 'teaser' for us, to generate interest and conversation. Are any of these colors coming on the 'new' R-1? I doubt it.

Ok, ok, now, like most everyone else on this post, I really like solid colours... er for the Americans... colors. However, I may be showing my squidly side, I kinda like that flame design. Flames on a stock 'cycle... that's pretty cool. Otherwise solid black, yellow, red, silver - none of those whacked out graphics please.

Nah, a whole lot of someones liked the bike.

I hate the dark blue, red and white of my GSXR (the old one) and would rather have the blue and white scheme but I couldn't find one. I like the bike - the colour's the last thing I care about.

I believe that motorcycles colors should go back to the late 80's. Remember the Katana, aqua color with pink sticker splash grapics? A delight to the eye. Or the GSXR that looked like a tagger hit hit? Don't get me started on the metallic browns and greens of the 70's.

Only one color would be appropriate:

SQUID GREY!!



P.S. I'm an R1 owner so no back flaming.

I see the trend here is all about solids and the flames, but I really like zany graphics on Jap sportbikes. I've been riding over 20 years and don't feel too much like a squid, but I have never enjoyed the Plain Red or Yellow of the Ducatis. I loved the early 90s colors on GSXRs, and currently own a 2001 R1 in Red. IMHO, no more boring "ME TOO" blue and Honda beat them to the punch on the silver w/ the CBRF4i. I pay a ton for the bikes, so let's get some colors. The least we can do is make them pay for stickers, too!



I just like more graphics better, but hated the Champion graphics.
