    Brembo brake calipers on Gen 1

    Chaps,

    Why were the the front calipers on my first Tuono (Gen 1 black framed 2004? model registered Jan 2007) painted red and the cones on my current 2006 registered Gen 1 Black framed model are gold??

    Why??

    Thanks in advance

    All 2004 Gen1 Tuono's had gold coloured calipers.
    For 2005,only the red Gen1 T's had the red painted calipers.

    Black and Silver bikes had gold.
    As for why,.........fook knows!
