Hi guys.

The topic says it all. Does anyone know what colour the frames on the 2017 KTM bikes are? Preferrably in RAL-colour code. :-)

Ral2009 is very close but that's the 2015 and older color. 2016+ is slightly different but you can only tell when they are side by side.

Thanks guys, but that's the FE bikes, and I'm really just looking for the plain jane black they use on the regular production 2017 bikes.

Should have made that clearer in the first post. Sorry!

I wish there was a way to get the correct new FE color. I have a 2016 150 that I want to paint the frame orange and I greatly prefer the new color.

RAL2009 is the closest you're going to get with powdercoating, whether it's the new or old orange color. I went thru hundreds of color samples from numerous companies. RAL2009 was the best match. Yes, the new and old oranges are slightly different, but the RAL2009 is the closest match for commercially available powders. The only way to get a better match is to find a company that will custom make a powder just for you.

I coated my '16 350, and it's so close you really can't tell the difference.

How did you get the black off your '16 350?

Sandblast is best.
