All black? Yellow? Concrete grey? Something more technical, perhaps, like the Carlin Dunne bike?
You know, back in the day I absolutely hated those crazy graffix on most Japaneese sportbikes. But now.., I don't know, I kinda like them, or have a soft spot for them. Nostalgia I guess.I dunno. I like simple. One or two main colors, small tasteful graphics. Black, Red, Yellow maybe blue with the white stripe or titanium gray with red wheels. Classic Ducati stuff. I don't care much for crazy, swoopy graphics....or ridlin addicted teen with a crayon graphics either:
NO, the whole "blacked out" thing is boring and overdone. I do like the exhaust though. Personally I'd love to see some of the black painted body color, with gold wheels and the hint of an engine. Right now that gold slop in the middle where an engine should be looks more like generator or some other no-character mess of industrial machination.I hadn’t noticed it on this pic until just now, but they’ve blacked out the radiator components on this bike. Also, the support piece above the engine. What say you, is that an improvement?
Yes, much better I think. The only thing I hate are those fluid reservoirs poking up. Same for this one, which I really think looks awesome! They need to switch to coffin style reservoirs just for the looks.I hadn’t noticed it on this pic until just now, but they’ve blacked out the radiator components on this bike.

Since the bike pretty much killed Carlin Dunne I'm just not sure how that would be received. Personally I would feel it was in poor taste.Carlin Dunne - edition would be ideal for this model do a run of 500

This bike doesnt look too bad. First of all the black is glossy like real paint and secondly it follows the painted design started on the bodywork so it flows well, and the red wings add a nice bit of bright contrast. I like it.
