Not to mention that there is grey, and then there is the 2014 ES "uhm, we forgot to paint the bike, but at least we primed the tank" that I own. I think most colors are better than that, but it suits the hyper-functional character of my bike. "Chipped paint? What paint?"
Voted sand because I own one, but the raven is sharp as well. I've only had mine for a few days, but noticed that the decal on the front has a cool silhouette of dunes in the place of stripes on all the others. Nice touch, Yamaha!
It's as if the bike is begging me to ride it into the Sahara!
I was on a long haul "motorcycle" trip to the left coast this summer and while stopped for the evening in Ely an older gentleman was at the same motel riding a sand color unit from Mass. ; told myself then I had to have that color if I get an S10. And I made it so!
The first S-10 I saw was a new 2012 White one. I instantly fell in love with the bike and that color, but could not bring myself to pay that much for a bike. When the Yellow 60th Anniversary model came out in 2016 I had to have one I didn't care what it cost, probably one of the best Yamahas I have ever owned.
