Bare in mind - The red version might not appear as the Dealer sites are ONLY showing Black and Blue/White at present.

***

IF/WHEN I am in that showroom looking at finally purchasing that R3 then this willl be a very tough decision indeed!

If all three are lined up together then it will help. Pictures may not give us the full, er, picture.

I like the black, in this case, as the decals are more subtle.
I also think the black version will date better.

I think it will actually come down to how many of a specific colour you see on the road.
i.e. If I see a load of black ones then I will change my mind as it may make mine less 'special' :)

i like the black as well... its murdered out, minimal decals, looks meaner and tougher and sleeker

yet the plenty of near death experiences and countless run in with sub par car drivers... im leaning blue and white for better visibility and exposure to other motorist

I have a feeling the blue and white will be hard to get due to demand. Red works for me and should be easy to find but that ugly rim tape has to go.
Where's my hair dryer??? :)

Yeah, I am pretty sure that blue/white will be the vastly dominent color chosen.

Its like not getting a sports Kawasaki in green.. just doesn't look right, or a Ferrari not in red :)

I don't think the colour will make enough difference to safety - from the back and front it is basicly the same and at night one would be wearing other reflective gear anyway. Certailny not enough difference to base my decison upon.

I would absolutely be delighted to ride the bike in any of the 3 colors.

If the dealer offered me the Red NOW and told me that the Blue is one month away and the black is two months away then I would take the Red. I won't regrest the decision as they all look fabulous.

I'm really into the GP liveries released for the R25, I'm hopeful Yamaha brings one of these over to combat the REPSOL CBR's, after all people do like pretending :D;)

As good as red looks, blue just looks awesome, it's what i rather get when going Yami. Red makes it look too honda like.

Yea I think that the blue reads Yamaha while the red reads Honda. The CBR is colored red and white. I think the blue and white looks nice and clean. Stylish but not like it is trying too hard.

Is anyone thinking of something custom?

Voted: Blue/White/Silver

Blue/White/Silver just looks better and gives a lot of meaning to Yamaha.

All the colours look good and it looks like Europe are only getting the 2 colours you mention ......

The blue / white will probably be the colour to have in 2015 but agree with you about the black colour. I'd like to see both colours side by side in the showroom.

Actually, from what I have read it is NOT Blue and White but in fact Blue and SILVER!
On closer inspection I think it is indeed silver.. That makes a difference to me.

Still.. already 85% of the poll are saying blue.. For that reason alone I have to get a black one! :)

Though i do also think:

Green = Kawasaki
Red = Honda
Blue = Yamaha

Mind you, Suzuki is usually blue isnt it?
Agh, just get the black and add in some custom highlights :)

Suzuki = Blue with white
Honda = Repsol

Since I've had a blue R1 and a blue R6 I may have to switch it up and go red if available.
No black for me. I hate black.

Screw it with the mainstream brand colors. I'd say get something different.

I agree, I rather go with one of the many colors for wrap that are out there and use it where ever is appropriate.

Then there's plasti dip.

Good options to stand out.
