Official European bikes may have: Two headlight bulbs, non-LED tail light (some with a red lens), e-approved separate
front signals and running lights, turn signals do NOT auto-cancel, different horns, and systems meet Euro-emmissions.

UK bikes may have front running lights removed so front signal bulbs are single-filament. Jarv Gav
UK bikes may have incandescent filament tail and brake light assembly. Gav Tomba
UK Bikes have signal bulbs: P21W (clear) and PY21W (amber) single-filament. Tomba Gav
UK bikes may be fitted with only one horn. Frec Tomba
UK bike headlight bucket usually drilled for two separate headlight bulbs. Jarv Gav
UK bikes may have LED tail/brake light but no running lights. Yet some have no COD w/license plate light removed (just an observation).
UK bikes may be fitted with heavier clutch push-lever spring. Tomba Jarv
Term "Grey Import" coined by Jarv to describe dealer-mods to meet UK laws. Jarv ArizonaWarrior

FACT* the correct name for the color of "red" on '02s is Imperial Red as far as the name and as far as I know it hasnt been used on any RS or RSW's since.
Fact* Midnights have red display lights and the others are blue.
Fact* Midnight factory exhausts do not have as much shielding as the chrome exhausts do.
Fact* '02-'05 Yammi used Bridgestone or Dunlap for their factory tires ( I cant speak for the years after that)
