Yupp the dark 2010 848 is different from the dark stealth 2011 848 evo. Long story short, I bought a 2010 848 dark and the motor blew up with 2,800 miles on it. Bike then qualified as a lemon after stalling issues couldn't be resolved so it was replaced with a 2011 dark stealth 848 evo.
The 2010 has metalflake in the paint where as the 2011 is pure flat black WITHOUT any silver speckles in the paint.
