the color is actually called matte grey metallic and the color code is under the seat, on the stock seat rail. as far as i know, there is no exact match paint or pc out there. at least, none that is easily available. i have painted some parts of my bike to match the grey color. i use 2 different colors, both made by rustoleum. the first coat i put on is a black night metallic, followed by a very light coat of the flat black to dull the finish. here are some pics of the parts i've painted on my bike:
