Nope. Matte Gray or the Red, both with gold forks. And I don't think it's white, more of a matte silver, although, oddly, on the UK site that color scheme is called Race Blu.

Tall screen looks perfectly fine at the start of that video (around 20 second mark, red bike), I would even go so far as to say it looks good and suits the bike with rear cases, thanks for posting up.

Best way around the patent is to use a different design, like Yamaha and Triumph have done on their big ADVs. The design is so different from the BMW I doubt there are any royalties involved.
