Those codes are cross-references to automotive colors that someone has found to be a close approximation to actual Aprilia colors. They are not official Aprilia colors, but they should be very close. Any automotive paint/body shop should be able to plug these numbers into their computerized paint mixers and get a close match.

Thanks Ted, but perhaps this post belongs in some category other than RST Futura and ETV Caponord. No mention of either bike in any color on that chart. Do you have access to RST and ETV paint codes?

I put it in nearly every category in case someone wanted to paint their bike using the listed approximations. That is the only list we've come across. Most quality auto body shops will be able to approximate colors without a list.

A good auto body shop will have a myriad of paint chip samples you can hold next to the bike for a good match with paint formula. I had a friend with a shop did my saddle bag and I can't tell the difference.

Yeah, but yours was silver. Try that with Flame Red

FWIW, I've discovered that Subaru Ice Silver Metallic (code G1U) is a good match for the Futura silver stream.
