So i've finally come up with the money and i'm going to be picking up an 09 cbr600 soon. Now comes the most important decision...what color do i get? i'm trying to decide between the all black and the green/black.

i was afraid the green would look too similar to the kawi ninjas, but actually seeing it on the bike it looked real sharp

yea dude get the color that puts the smile on your face. i just picked up the black/red 09. ive always wanted a red bike since i could remeber. ive had the 07 white/black and that was beautiful in my eyes. so get the color that u like most, dont worry about the critics.

enjoy the 600, and be safe.

As said above, get the one that YOU like the most; it's your hard earned money so don't worry about what others think.

In regards to the green looking like a Kawi, no way man. The Metallic Green looks so much nicer than the Kawi's lime green.

Personally, I prefer the subtlety of the Black, but every time I go to the dealership, I find myself checking out the green one.

I love my bikes colors but since I am the only one in Eastern CT, it does make it difficult to really have some fun. I just can't say "it wasn't me". You will be amazed how many people stop to ask if it is a custom paint job.

Sounds like your mind is nearly made up! The all black is sexy but once I saw the tri-color I knew that was the bike for me...then went down and bought one.

That tri-color is sexy. They have one at the stealership here that I go in and drool all over once in a while. I think the mids are a navy blue too right?

I have a black 07, and I was torn between that or a white one. I basically thought about it and just decided that it didn't matter what anyone else thought about the color. I wanted to like what I saw every time I opened my garage and saw the bike. Go with what you like. If you like both, flip a coin.

Also, know that with the amount of OE bodywork floating around on forums like this one, you can always swap, sell, buy, change out whatever body panel you want, and have a totally custom, if not one-off setup. It's really not as hard as you might think to take something off and swap for a different piece.

Lastly, black is a huge pain in the ass to keep totally clean. Turtlewax makes a great product called "The black box" (There are other companies that make similar stuff for black paint too) that is meant specifically for black bikes. It has a 3 step process in the box, and almost all the stuff you need to protect your paint, which I would recommend to ANY bike owner, regardless of color. Black is just more of a PITA because it shows every scratch, swirl, and fingerprint it ever gets.

get the green!
if im not mistaken, black is available every year while the green is available only in 2009
The man makes a good point, but it's not really about limited editions... Everyone has said it, it's about the one that makes you smile. I started out wanting the green, then went to the black, then signed the papers on a red one... I'm a sucker for a redhead! And to me, red just screams Honda!

go with the green/black, I did. If you think it looks good in the dealership wait till you walk in the garage everyday to take her out. It's pretty badass. And you sure do get the compliments

I'm in the same boat! From all my internet searching and dealer perusing I had decided upon black and green. Then I saw saw a tricolor and it perked my interest. The second time I saw the tricolor it was game over, bought and I haven't looked back. Got it for 7500 too. :eek:hyeah:

Of those two choices I'd go with the black and green if it were me. I've always been more of a fan of how multiple colors compliment/contrast each other than any one solid color. Makes for a more interesting product. :thumbup:

It's a very dark almost navy blue. Honda refers to it as a "Pearl Blue" but you have to get really close to it to see it.
