Why?
I'm buying a new Vstrom and was just wondering.

I can get an '06 in a nice Red or wait for the '07 in Blue.

Im sure red is the most eye catching and the most popular color. Then again, most of the time its catching the cops eyes and the blues speed by un-noticed.

In my area - Soutern Ontario -local dealer tells me that for 06s - dk blue, followed by light blue/grey are most popular. They were discounting red ones earlier to move them off the lot. As for resale - the color that hasn't been dropped usually commands the better price.

I would get the blue. If you ride fast you don't want to
be so noticeable.
The best color for re-sale is probably black.
It's just that I'll never sell mine I'm running that sucker into the ground.
