KTM Orange paint match - off the shelf?

Does anyone know if there is an off the shelf spray paint that matches the KTM orange? Something like a spray paint readily available like Rustoleum, etc.

Thanks in advance

P.S. - this isn't about being a cheap-ass and not using a body shop to paint. It's for painting parts that constantly get scratched, mangled, etc - like my crash bars since I'm useless off road and find myself eating dirt often :)

Neighbor painted his rear frame with Rustolem "True Orange" in a rattlecan, is very, very close. Just a tiny bit more yellow. You can only tell if there is a KTM powder coated part nearby.

There is a thread with the powdercoat official numbers. Looking...

i have always used the Krylon o.s.h.a. safety orange. buy it at the local ace hardware. it's really close, especially if only doing small pieces.

here is a pic of my 640. the orange heat shield is done in that paint.



here is a close up.



like i said, pretty close.
