Suzuki GSX1400 - New color scheme
|Today (22 October 2001) released MCN Online
a picture of next year's GSX1400. According to the article there's
a new style for 2002, but there are no mechanical changes.

paint might look similar to the 2001 version, but there are several
differences to give a slightly more modern appearance. The simple,
striped tank of the current blue and white version is replaced
with a more complex, zig-zagged design. There are also two single-colour

The Japanese version shown here has 98bhp compared to the UK model
has 106bhp. The story and the picture are available here: http://www.motorcyclenews.com/news/detail?sectionID=50677&documentID=96976.

to be the same as before.
question is: are these new colors only dedicated to the Japanese
