It's black and it's slower than blue..red is the colour of STOP, Yellow ..it's going backward, Silver ..metal coloured paint best saved for fire escapes.

Black is the fastest as it is not even a colour
Red is the slowest
Yellow is not as fast as black unless it has the speedblocks. Then it gets close.
Blue is just slow.
Silver is undercoat waiting for the paint.

Black is the Abyss...a turgid meander in deep space
Blue is the colour of lightning...it's that fast
Red best reserved for road signs like give way and stop
Yellow - speedblocks or not..semi congealed custard
Silver..old age, fading of powers trying to remember if the penis has another use other than dribbling

Actually black is not black - its the only fzs600 colour that is metallic ( That's shiny flecks of silver in the paint for all you base colour riders )
I don't do rain or threat there of. dry rider only with no shame.

But it's still black whether it's metallic or not. Do the DVLA know that the V5's wrong then?

 According to Fowlers, yours is Black2, no mention of metallic you'll notice. Whereas mine is Purplish Blue Metallic.  Who's is metallic now? Yamaha don't mention metallic and they should know. :nana

Interesting that it is not listed in any way as being metallic but in real life it is metallic, I will try and get a picture, the metallic-ness is very fine

I totally believe you I've noticed it myself, it shows up best in strong sunshine, I'm only pulling your leg, all I was saying was that just because it's metallic doesn't mean it's not black, mine's metallic but it's still blue.

Red=Warning - High Speed Object in motion
Silver=Bullet
Black=Tina Turner - Simply the Best

All 3 colours combined into the S model.........Unstoppable....S standing for Speedyasfoc :smokin
Easiest way to go fast........don't buy a blue bike

I have to admit (reluctantly) that is the best colour scheme and the one I was looking for but fell for a mint blue foxeye.

If you are adding flecks of silver to any colour to make it metallic, then surely silver is the best and therefore the fastest!!
