Going by the specs.
An all season type of anti-freeze is installed in the cooling system when the bike leaves the factory, it is coloured blue, contains a 50% solution of ethylene glycol and has a freezing point of -35c.
The coolant contains a corrosian inhibitor.
Never use a methanol based anti-freeze as this does not contain the required corrosion inhibition properties.
I do not know if each company has its own colour but any anti-freeze meeting the above specs should be fine be it purple,pink,green or tartan.
