    What a question!?
    Of course it's the 1997 ZR1100-C1 METALLIC MIDNIGHT PURPLE
    Otherwise I wouldn't have chosen it.

    I just wish getting the B-model fairings wasn't such a pain/so expensive. I love the look.

    I like the stripes and it hit the target green for me. Thank you very much for the pics, I've always wanted to see a complete line-up.

    You guys outside of the states have it made when it comes to the Rex - WAY more color choices, the S and naked versions and you got the first two and last three years of the bike. We never had a truly lime green color choice either.

    I'll go with the 2007 ZR1200A7F LIME GREEN / CANDY THUNDER BLUE (18J) just because of the gold wheels & blacked out swinger.

    That explains why my first batch of paint was wrong--I didn't know there was more than one candy lightning blue....

    Re: What Model is the best OEM colour?

    Ya know, I used to be a green '99 snob, but after a couple Kaws on the Farms and seeing what a silver, red, blue, black, and aftermarket paint job look like in person, I think it's the lines of the bike that I really like. I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but the fact that the thing is so simple means that it's easy to make it your own with pretty minor changes and details. Like mine, for example, has a cool stripe down the left side of the tank from my radiator leak, and my Muzzy meg has two holes in it where the badge is supposed to be. One of a kind!



    Thanks for the pics!

    Well the ones you have listed aren't perfect, there are even some aftermarket pipes on them, did the factory do that. I also don't see the US version of the 99 in green, the 98 seems to look the same, but is it? I don't know.

    All pictures and colour codes except the ELR S model come from the Kawasaki database here.

    No idea if they done a campaign with BEET (renowned Kawasaki tuners) on an occasional year to supply with end cans but certainly looks that way

    Its a combination of JDM models and the "Malaysian" imports (full power)

    Generally the import models are the UK, Oz as the lamp units are correct for driving on the left side of the road.

    Wouldn't think any are US models but could/should be the same colour code as used where appropriate.

    not sure about subtle details from year to year other then 99-2000 green and 2001 and on since i did not go through the entire list but I do know the Cdn Blue and the American blue are decidedly different and i prefer the Cdn one
    post 2001 is growing on me slowly
    of the ones shown in the S version I really like the blue one
    that said I am definitly keeping mine green
