Picking the new color to paint the bike

Right now my bike is white with some red details, not really up to my liking especially the white rims. I'll post a picture in few days got nothing good right now.


Anyhow I've looked all over the gallery here and on google and I'm really split between the two options. I think I borrowed the pic from someone on the forum so excuse that part.


Option one is red, to me when I think Honda, besides Repsol, I think red and black and I'm really digging this look:





Buuuuut on the other hand, going all blacked out looks sexy as hell as well, I'd even paint the screws hah. I'm kinda leaning a bit more towards the all black but just slightly, with right shade of red it's gorgeous...


Here's some black examples:





I know this is really my choice and it's up to me but nothing is really pushing me either way too much so I'm open to hearing your opinion. Was thinking about doing maybe gold rims or some details as I always loved that R1 with that type of look but after seeing some pics of it done I wasn't feeling it anymore.

I have both a gloss black CBR600RR and a flat black CBR1000RR. I very much prefer the flat black because the gloss black will scratch just looking at it wrong.

Yeah I'd probably go with flat black too if I pick black, glossy just seems like it's inviting scratches, swirl marks in the paint etc.

I like the red black also.
Maybe cos I bought one myself.
I would not go flat black, they never look as clean as the gloss colours.

Decided to go with the red and black. Now to see what is needed all in all. I know all crappy parts can be mended but besides that need to do it right, good lines and good color quality, I know it needs to be sanded down plenty and other things. Also gotta see if i should just paint the rims or powder coat them

'08 600RR- Stripped trackbike. CRG shorty brake lever, goodridge front brake lines
'15 1000RR- weekend toy
