  1. My bike's a Kawasaki GTR1400 ('12 model) - I don't know how they come up with color names like 'Candy Arabian Red' - but that's what it is (almost Maroon - but she sparkles in the sun). I've been (back) riding now for 5 years (off bikes for 25 years before that) - and loving it. I'm on the local Ulysses Club branch, and besides riding most weekends, I commute on it every day (yes you can lane filter with panniers on!).

  3. G'day Hurricane1Hurricane1 and welcome to Netrider.

    Someone in the marketing department at Kawasaki probably spent days coming up with that colour name - there may have even been sub-committee meetings over it, thousands of dollars spent on market research and then in one short remark you've reduced it back down to 'red' again! =D

    GoldenberriGoldenberri has no idea, has she? It's aubergine isn't it? Or burgundy? (Maroon's so 2012)
