Silver Novillo vs. Palladium

So I'm looking at the brochure my dealer gave me last week and I notice that we here in the States will have the option to get Silver Novillo leather vs. the Palladium silver that we've seen over in Europe. So is the main difference between the two the slight hint of light blue in the Palladium....or is there more to it?

Based on the US sales info I've seen, there is no "Palladium Silver" leather option in the US, so I must assume Silver and Palladium Silver are indeed the same thing.

Often things are simplified for the US. They seem to determine Palladium to be too complicated for you guys

Kind of like that Harry Potter movie where "philosopher's stone" was turned into "sorcerer's stone"

What's in a name? As long as the blue hue is there.

As long as they simplify our USD price-tag along with it. It's all cool with me.
