Can anyone tell me what year or years the color "Graphite Metallic" was available on the K1200RS. It almost looks like a very dark metallic blue. Also a photo would be great.
Thanks for your help

Is that what they mixed with Dakar yellow in '98? Or the Mandarin yellow in '02? (Or was that 01?)

No, this is one solid color. I have a new unused right side panel for a KRS and I am trying to determine it's color.

They had it in 1999

I have a brochure from BMW 1999 and its in there as " Graphite Metallic "
I have a Mandarin / Graphite 2001 checker ( for sale ), the paint code for the Graphite Metallic is BMW..342.

Hope this helps, I have it in my hands as I'm putting this in.

The color on the bike you're showing is Dolphin Blue.

The graphite is a dark metallic gray...almost looks black in some light.

My 2001 is Graphite Metallic -- the best color, of course!

Sure looks like it. I sent you a pm.
Could you send me a couple of other views of your bike?
Thanks
