Holly Sh!t,



This was like asking a chick what dress she likes the best.



Why not have the bike custom painted when you order it and have Yami pay for it?

Wasn't the OW-M1 matte black? If that's the case, your local hardware store could help you out with $20 of spraypaint. It's the beautiful, deep solid colors (think Triumph Sprint ST) that really only look right when done in the factory.

I agree, in Yamaha's own words, words, the solid colors (especially silver) give the impression of a "clean [and] sophisticated design".

hell all the jap bikes have too many graphics.a bike is masculine and muscular.now like Arnold Schwarzenegger looks better in a tux or Armani and in punk styles and bright colors make him look like a sissy and makes us puke.so bike should have solid colors ,black silver ,carbon grey,ash grey,metallic blue,dark blue ,medium blue like current R1 but only solid singlecolor scheme and no graphics.Even the manufacturer & model logos should be in black/silver paint not in stickers,not in bright flashy yellow /pink red/orange.the only red yellow orange must be the tail lights,warning lights and turn signals.

Well, that`s easy. The colors should be 1) red 2) black/red 3) white/black.

Default I like solid colors too, but

The black with white is really nice! I think it accents the bike's lines better than just a solid color.

Default Re: Your favorite?

I debated between the solid red - very slick and clean... BIG Fan and the black and red flame - The kind of paintjob I'd PAY for... BIGGER Fan!
