Hi folks! I've just been to EICMA here in my country and I've noticed that Yamaha is advertising the XSR 700 just with the 3 new colors (black, light gray and red).
So basically I was wondering if the "old" colors like Forest Green, Garage Metal and 60th Anniversary did go in a sort of "no more production" , as newer models are just offered with the 3 new colors.
So basically I was wondering (if anyone of you knows): if a random guy goes to a Yamaha Shop and asks for an XSR 700 today, what color can he get?

Would be sorta sad if they removed the three starter colors from market, but this would also be somehow nice and make the "old" colors more unique :)

/cheers!

I'm guessing that 'light gray' is what we know as 'garage metal'. Yamaha's UK website lists colour options as: red, garage metal or black. So, no more forest green or 60th anniversary colour options. Here's hoping they'll become collectors' items! I guess some dealers may still hold stock of the redundant colours, but best to be quick if you want one. Personally, I think forest green is still the best!

Mmmmh well maybe I expressed myself badly, but the garage metal is the OLD (if it can be called like that!) color and its a dark, opaque grey.
The new kind of grey Yamaha launched is a color that is way more shiny and bright. Like an aluminum bike! Ahahah idk if this helps you tu understand! xD
By the way yeah I agree with you: forest green (like mine ehehehe) is surely the nicest one! ;)

I'd like to get two of the shiny aluminum panels over to the US... the garage metal panels don't match my aluminum side covers.

Shamelessly farkling away over here :)
