yellow seat???

I have very good deal on 2018 dl 1000xt but in freaking yellow,
anybody has any experience with this color? Looks to me like this seat
will get dirty very quickly, right?

if that yellow would be dark but it's bright...

Like most, you'll probably be wanting a nice comfy aftermarket seat anyway. Besides, it's vinyl, should wipe off easy.
On the downside, if a bee was sitting on it you might not see it and sit on the bee. That could hurt you in a tender spot.

It would most certainly get really dirty were it on my Strom.

Direct from the dealer I've made them swaped the yellow to the dark one from a black one in the show room.

I'm actually partial to the yellow/black look.... one benefit of the yellow seat will be the lack of ass burning in full summer sun.

Vstrom saddles are decent, you can get new grey saddle for around 240 from the dealer.

Suzuki has a long history with yellow and black seats.
I had one of these in 1998. No problems with the seat - and the bike got really dirty.
