Is this a Stock 2006 Color?

07-19-2016, 02:17 PM
Hello all,

Newbie here. Browsing around the Kawasaki forums while I shop for an older model Concours. I really like the older models better.

Need a one-up sport tourer for myself when the wife isn't going with. When the wife goes it's the Gold Wing and at least four pieces of luggage, sometimes five! She's a trooper, but packs heavy!

Looking at a nice 2006 locally with a bit over 50k on the clock. I've seen this color before, but never with white stripes like this. The stripes go across the top of the tank and the tail piece as well.

So, the question is: Is this a stripe option that came from the factory, or did someone add these stripes themselves. Here, a picture:

Thanks for any help.

The blue looks stock, dont see any with the stripes but it looks cool.

I'm no expert, but I don't think the Concours came with stripes or had that option.
Not that this proves anything, but I didn't see a stripe kit in the parts diagrams.

Linking photos. just an FYI in case you don't care for photobuckett. I use Imgur dot com. Flickr is another place, but I've never used it, and I'm sure there are other photo hosting sites besides photobuckett. I don't like that they add a watermark & sometimes the watermark obscures something in a pic that you're trying to view. kind of annoying. I know it can be a pain to move your pics to another site, but personally, I hate photobuckett.

I also like the ZG1000s. Here's a maroon one. not mine, but I like the color. probably my second choice
after the Dark Blue models. Imgur pic I saved. again, not mine. 1994 Concours
