2013 XT660Z Colours?

Does anyone know if Yamaha are offering any other colours than Black and Blue for 2013 model. The 1200 is now offered in White and I would love a white one to replace my busted black beauty
In Europe they are also offered with ABS on some models, why do we always get less choice in this country???

We get that much more choice in bikes here than places like the USA. They still do not even have the Tenere released there.

Aint that stupid, they get the 1200 but not the 660, I am wondering whether Yamaha could not keep up with demand if they did

Doubt it, they weren't able to sell all the ones they brought into Oz.

That is because they are overpriced by about $3000.00, they are running out the old ones for $11000.00 at the moment which means I will be getting another black one but it also means that I will be getting all the goodies thrown in too

I also bet they would sell a few more in Oz if they increased the colour range..

Bit of a pricey job getting that done to a new bike (unless you or someone you know is a spray painter)

I'd put that cash towards something else on the bike.. like zorst or.... maybe suspension if you are going to be getting air bourne allot!!
or did you get all your add ons from your old bike?

Unfortunately all the addons were destroyed in the prang, except for the throttle lock
But they seem to be replacing everything back to the way it was even the tall screen I added after.
Cant wait to get back on the bike

Found out yesterday, the new colors for 2013 are white and blue, no black models in the mix, now if I can stall the claim until the new white ones arrive
