IMO,best resale,black
most popular,blue.
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.

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.

Safe riding

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.

Sure do hope they do a 'curtain call' on the yellow Strom of 03!

I would upgrade to that color or colour!

It's a little known fact that the red ones are subject to massive maintenance issues after a couple of years due to the red pigment attacking the underlying metal.

This can be confirmed by looking very closely at the paint (from close up) and feeling the discomfort the red colour causes the eyes. :roll:



Go Blue

I have no idea of which colour is the best, but seeing the (re)sales statistics surely one of the worst is the green...
Thats because the green ones are KLR's

black

Black. I could not stand how the V-strom looked until I so a black one. I had to search to find a 2005 black 1000. It had only 1200 miles on it. What a find and I like the looks so much I cant even think about selling it.
