    Is the 2013 blue vxr a flat blue paint or metallic paint ?

    Have seen a 2013 vx cruiser in the metallic yacht blue and love it, but have not been able to see the deep blue on any machine. Is it a metallic paint or flat ? Of the 2013 models the fzs, vxr, fx sho, can all be had in the deep blue. Anyone who has one and seen a machine in the metallic yacht blue, maybe you could comment on the colour differences.
    I would assume other years had deep blue and metallic yacht blue also, so maybe someone in the know could comment.

    thanks

    This is our 2013 SHO. It was the only colour available here, to be honest I didn't like it initially, and even searched for a leftover black 2012, but I've taken to it now. It's a subtle metallic, and softer (careful, scratches) than the metallic black of our 2012 FX HO.

    The picture is pretty true to the actual colour. It looks good in sunlight with water droplets on it after a ride...

    Hope that helps. Unfortunately haven't seen the deep blue.

    Here is another actual picture of the machine for your consideration.

    Thanks it looks good with the seat that has the black trim on it Does not look as good on the 2012 vx cruiser with an all grey seat that I was able to view today.

    Easily rectified with a seat cover, either one from the GH store or have Jettrim make one in custom colors for you.

    Yeah I'm glad I bought mine in 2012 because honestly I don't think I could pick between that blue and the yellow. I'd want them both!
