Tony. it's the "in" colour at the moment. The tiger 800 and the new Tracers have similar colours.
I saw a pic of the same colour on a new Tracer in the Yamaha brochure and it did nothing for me but when I saw one in the "flesh" it looked really classy.  :028:

Somebody went through a lot of trouble to make it look adventure-ish.  I don't mind the color, but those boxes and 3K mile tires...   :124:

I like the colour scheme but I'm with Rob on the top box, a normal sized top box mounted that far back messed the handling up on my MK1 (which is why my top box is now fitted to the pillion seat), one that size could be disastrous loaded up in a cross wind.

Nah WD that's not really classy - it's just posh Khaki - us Essex Boys know classy and it's either got to be pink or suntan or preferably both mate.  :001: :002:

I didn't say it was, but that adventure top box is huge and a normal sized one that far back behind the axle affects the bikes handling  :151:
