Yamaha R3 Colors?

I am thinking about an R3 (have a deposit on one) but was not able to attend any of the shows this year. I like the blue but don't care for the matt finish silver. Does anyone know if the Raven Red has matt finish or gloss for the white portions of the bike. Thanks in advance.

Assume you mean Rapid Red that has white, the Raven is all black with red graphics/markings.

Anyway, yeah it's hard to tell from the pics:

try to find some high resolution pics, or maybe this will help, go to 1:06

Thanks, the Red/White seems to be gloss white but lighting can make things look gloss in a picture/video and I looked through the pictures on the site with the same results.

I'd like to know more about this bike. Seems like Yamaha isn't giving the usual guys a test bike yet.

Yeah, I think the FJ-09 tests were out about the same time as the bike. I get a demo prior to accepting it so I'm not too worried and I think it will be great.
