Hello Folks,
As far as the official documents say, there was never a SS180 in orange (Giallo Arancio), but I have come across a few cases which suggest this may not be the case. There has been some discussion in another forum that in fact some of the latest ones might have been painted in the forthcoming Rally 180 color (although not officially reported). I have not yet found out reliably if this was the case (and if mine has the original color), but I am interested if you have any information about this.
Also, this being my first posting, I want to say hi to all. Been following the forum for a while but not registered until now. Cheers.

I have never seen an original paint SS180 like that yellow-orange one I see in your photo (second from the left). I have seen straight fire engine red, red-orange like that bike in the background of your photo (up on the table), white, and dark blue. That yellow-orange SS180 in your photo is most likely a repaint by someone who just wanted that color.
