I heard the same exact thing that the '03 SE would still be the all black. Would be nice if the copper comes back out again. To be perfectly honest, I do think that it is the best looking color ever made for the Busa. I wanted to purchase one before I bought mine. Found this guy in Florida who wanted to sell one for about 10 grand with only 2k miles on it. Guy was real firm on price and wouldn't come down any. Finally found a brand new one for $9300 and...well...you all can figure the rest. If anyone finds out any different, please verify what the 'real deal' is.
The new "Burnt Orange" or copper color Busa is going to celebrate Suzuki being in the U.S. for 40 years. It's being called the "40 Anniversary Edition." Two other models will celebrate this anniversary with special paint jobs, a GSXR-600 and one of the curisers bikes. Your local dealer should have received a package from Suzuki Headquarters showing the new bikes in full color.
