Blue. I think it speaks the most in favour of the Ténéré history. Blue for bikes in my opinion is a difficult color. But for this Ténéré it suits the bike well.

First I hear of silver in the US market.
Silver is not coming to the U.S. for the 2012 model year (our PDP bikes), but then, this isn't a U.S.-only poll. :D

One thing I like about the U.S. version having black seat and side panels is that they might blend with a larger number of colors if some decide to repaint. I can't see repainting right off the bat, but after three years, a different color might recapture that "new bike" feel and by then, differentiate your bike from the masses of ST that I expect to be around in three years.

I ordered raven, but if they offered Silver that would be the choice. I really want it to be black and white and will most likely make mine that way.

Re: Black, Blue or Silver

Since the Raven is the same as the '08 and '09 FJR. I wonder if the silver is the same as the '10 and '11 FJR. It's a nice silver and stands out very well. I'm still happy with my choice of Impact Blue.

Black for me as of 12/28. I went with black because the panels were black and I like things to match. ;D

It's called Silver Tech in the UK. That's the same standard colour used on the bikes like the FJR etc.

You go ahead silverthunder.... it's purely a count to identify the trend associated with colour. It's rather skewed as a result of silver not being available in the US. However, this is a truly International forum and your input is highly valued.

Re: Black, Blue or Silver

If I can sell my M109 I'm ordering a blue one for sure my favorite color. My LE is blue with a white stripe like the muscle cars from the day.
