The European FJ-09, ala MT-09 tracer, gets the red and matt grey colors, but also gets what they are calling racing blue. Basically a silver and black bike with blue rims and forks. Here is a picture from an english site:

And another review with more pictures of the racing blue.

My dealer has both the blue and grey in the showroom. The blue fork has a rich and vibrant coating, the blue wheels are painted and some what duller. Because of the two blue tone up front, it kind of catches one's attention in a negative way. I went for the grey instead.

Visited the shop again just now and you're right. The two tones of blue just does not work. They had all three colors in stock now and I'll go for the gray one, no doubt.

I have to agree, the blue forks are... well... very blue. I'm not a fan of golden forks either to be honest.
I love the gold forks. Makes me feel like I spent some serious coinage on an Ohlins fork package. I think it compliments the red color for some reason.
