    I was expecting the same problem as the Insurance Database didn't list the 2021 GS Triple Black though it did list this in the GSA version, but in the end specified it as an R1250GS TE being that this is the Log Book description and then no problem and am paying just over £320.

    I think the log book will say colour black.

    I bought my Triple Black R1250GSA in March this year (i.e. a 21 plate).
    The V5 states:

    Model:R 1250 GS Adventure TE
    Colour: Black

    Hope that helps, hopefully the non-Adventure will be described similarly.

    That's how my V5 is for the GS Triple Black
