The UK colors are the same as the Canadian colors. The black is identical to the 2000, while the red/white/blue and the yellow/purple are changed quite a bit. Personally, except for the black which is the same, and the Erion Racing Edition, which is REALLY sweet, I think the 2000 graphics were nicer.
Oh, when you go into the section for the FireBlade colors, the top 3 are the 2001, while the bottom 3 are the 2000. It does not show the Erion Edition. We get the exact same Erion edition as you guys get in the States. I saw one at my local dealer just the other week, and it is SWEET. Not sweet enough for me to trade my red/white/blue in on one, but if they offered that color scheme in 2000, that's what I would be riding, without a doubt.
The Erion scheme looked good to me too, until I looked at one last week at the dealer- 80% of the lower fairing is a big sticker! It looked great from 10 feet, but really cheesy up close. For 10 grand they could at least clearcoat over the $2 decals! Oh yeah- make that 11 grand for the Erion stickers.
