What is the name of this colour?
I've been riding my 2005 Vulcan 1600 Classic for three years now and have been endeavouring to discover the name of it's colour to order touch-up paint for a couple of small stone chips.
I bought it from the original owner who called it maroon or brown. In researching reviews of the model online, I cannot find any mention of the real name of this colour, although there are plenty of photos of the bike in this colour with the gold stripes. Red, black and beige seem to be the colours which are mentioned in the "official" literature for the 2005 Vulcan Classic model.
The closest I got was a bike magazine review from 2005 in which the author called it "Root Beer Pearlcoat"; his own description of the colour, not the official name according to him. It's pretty accurate actually, especially when the bike's in the sun and the light catches metallic flake. Almost a dark copper ("root beerish") in sunlight and on overcast days it looks like a burgundy/brown.
I wrote to Kawasaki and provided them with the VIN, date of manufacture, etc,... and they replied that could not identify the actual name of the colour in what I am sure was a modified form letter.
Does anyone know the real name of this colour? I've attached a photo of my bike for reference. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
