Yup, 1996 they started with a blue tank and shrouds. It was a darker blue then they currently use though. In 1998 they started using the current shade of blue that they still use today.

Not even a little! I'd switch my '09 to dark blue if I could.

I believe here in the usa 1998 was the first year for the true "all blue" type color theme which was also the introduction of the historic and radical YZ400F:

No.

 

It is, though, a strong indicator of excellent taste!
