True, only red will be in Canada. USA gets white, black, green, and green black with ABS.

Sadly painting a motorcycle is not cheap either...

I can't grasp the reasoning of red in canada only.
Maybe it's easier to spot in all the snow...

Red may be a hot seller. But the bike in general is hot, so you buy one this year even though its not what you want.. Next year red comes out so you buy another :)

I understand it, however it shocks me, even 250's were offered in red all the time, why stop now? The pics of the red are amazing. I guess if needed, you could possibly sell your fairings, since there in brand new condition, and buy some reds.

the fairings would be the easy part, its the tank you need to worry about, that would be custom paint or a new one as well, not to mention changing the color on the title and the vin number no longer matches the bike.. I would be interested to know what it costs to import one..

I'm not sure what it cost in other states or country's but in Idaho it only cost me $5 to change the color of my truck after paining it. I just walked into the DMV and said "Hey! I painted my truck black." They took about 5 mins and it was done.

you could see if anyone in Canada is willing to trade fairings with you down the road.
I highly doubt anyone is riding their 125 in the snow.

i hate that canada gets red, but i guess it's what makes these bikes much more interesting that different nations get different color schemes.

Honestly I would have loved to see the ninja released in red in the states but I'm really partial to the white because I'm looking to paint over the fairing with red later anyways.
