    Was green a standard color for '08 Motolites?

    Looking at a used ML. Seller says frame is '08 and that yellow and green were standard colors for that year. Is this correct info? Thanks.

    The '07 catalog shows green as an option, the '08 shows yellow. Neither has both.

    Hmm...okay, thanks. I wasn't finding green as an option for 2008 either. Doesn't make a big diff, but when buying used, it makes me leery to find that the seller either isn't telling the truth or doesn't know what he/she has for sale...

    I have the green ML, it's an '07. I bought mine in February of '08 new from LBS - and got a better deal being previous year's model. Anyway, depending on when it was purchased new from store it could be "less ridden" than a '08. Anyway, I think the only real difference between the two model years is the '08 was manufactured in USA and the '07 in Asia (Taiwan?).

    I remember some Kawa green Titus from some shop that posted a few pics here... Mind you, I can't remember if it was a ML or a Racer X.

    Kawa green is a shade so horrible I could ever forget.

    There was indeed a 2007 green one... anodized, I think. Silver, Black, green and blue were offered for 2007 IIRC.

    The 07 green MLs were painted.
