Why did the U.S. R3's get fugly signals as stock and the rest of the world gets modern updated ones like the picture below?

Anyone know where I can get those replaced online?
I think it's something to do with U.S. regulations. I believe motorcycle front turn signals here must be amber. You can do that with an amber lens cover or an amber bulb behind a clear lens cover. Yamaha chose to do the amber lens cover and must have used the ugly ones from some other existing model.

I put these on my R3 (get the harness adapters and the relay, too and the whole thing will be Plug-and-Play). They're available in clear and smoked.

This is where I bought mine.

They come as a complete kit with resistors to make them flash at the correct 85 flashes per minute rate.

They also come with connectors to connect to existing wires on the bike
