Decoding the color references


TDM900

Model identification

First thing to do is determining which model of TDM do you own.
The identification label called Model Label is affixed on the chassis, under the seat :

(image)• xxxx : model type (eg : 5PSA)
• yyy : production code
• z : colouring code (A / B / C)

This reference is normally used to command parts - mainly fairing parts - from the dealer.

Model Type

There are two Model Types each year, one for each region (Europe-South Africa and Oceania), except for 2008 (three model types).
Since 2005 there is a Model Type for the ABS version (2008 : 2 ABS model types).
• 5PSx = TDM900 std.
• 2B0x = TDM900A (ABS).
eg : 5PS1 = TDM900 2002 (Europe-South Africa)
The year refer to the year of manufacture. This may not be the year of registration.
The last year of production being 2010, any model purchased after 2010 is a 2010 model.

Colour Code

Every Model Type may have three Colour Codes (two for 2010) : A / B / C
Every Model Type + Colour Code is given a model name to which an abbreviated color code is added.
eg : 5PS1 - C = Reddish Yellow Cocktail 1 (RYC1))

Bike Model

There are two colours (primary & secondary colours) applied on each model, they are sometime identical. The primary colour is usually the one which is applied on the fuel tank & the side panels. There is actually no rule linking the colour to a particular element of the machine. For example the front fender is usually of primary colour but sometimes of secondary colour ...

The abbreviated colour code refers to the primary colour and does not always refer to the model name.
eg : 2007 / Lava-Red (DRMK) or 2004 / Blue Stone (DNBME).
