2012 Matte Grey Color

Afternoon Gents!

This is my first post on this esteemed forum and I'm happy to introduce myself as a fellow R1 rider based in Malaysia.

I currently ride a 2009 R1 that until a couple of days ago was covered in vinyl-CF tape. Underneath the tape is the stock OEM "blue" that remains to "blue" for me to deal with. So its time to swap colors.

The 2012 matte grey R1 looks fantastic (IMHO) and gives the bike an understated yet menacing look. Very nice indeed.

So a question for you Yamaha gurus out there: does anyone know the color code of that 2012 R1 MATTE GREY paint? I've attached a pic of what I'm talking about for reference.

Thanks in advance for your guidance. I'll look forward to keeping up with this forum here on out.

Cheers, Don
