think you are right.
At Erzberg there were loads of GG bikes, but unless you knew them you would not have noticed it, unlike the pumpkins that are all the same colour for the past 10 years or so

They did that in '07, decided on red as the corporate color. Lasted two years and then changed their minds.

With all the main colors taken ,to make the color say GASGAS , they would need to go a different shade of a color already taken (as in TM has blue & Yam has Blue but they are different), Or maybe go with a two color scheme (as in Husaberg).

The Red frame does attract attention . When some of my buddies first saw my SIX DAYS they went on & on about the red frame.
