is there a color difference from 2010 white to the 2012 white?

Hey all

Im just having a hard time finding this out for myself.

I have a 2012 white/with the skull decal, and im looking to replace the fairings. Im leaning towards going all white, and I see that the most recent 2010 model offers an all white fairing trim.

I'm gonna order it from powersport but I would like to know if it's the same pearl white as my 12'


anyone that has any insight would be much appreciated.


thanks in advance!

so are they both the same bluish white cocktail color ? or are the whites a different form of white? i know the bluish white cocktail color on the 12' refers to the pearl like effect.
