The bike is looking killer with that matte black treatment but the red is not providing the contrast it deserves. The red parts could have be silver or brush aluminium........ just my opinion. On the whole a job well Done!

the black paint job looks really good and agree with ripper here that the bike will look better if you could add some chrome/silver.

A bit of chrome will accentuate the bike's looks. The matte finish is good,but the red makes the bike lose out on some of the highlights that would otherwise be there with a bit of chrome. The tail pipe could be in chrome,for example. That would make the bike get a brighter look,yet have the 'stealth' with the black color.

I agree with some of the others, while the red looks,err.. different, i'd have preferred some chrome too, but hey, to each his own!

The Bike is from Mumbai.

Well , for people who dont like the color combi , i feel if you see the BIKE in real , you would really like the Red treatment added on , it gives a nice contrasting effect ... And its different than the regular black and chrome or entire black (i.e. smoked effect) Its not run of the mill job i can assure you of that .

The only thing lacking in the bike is smoked black alloy wheels, remove the red colour from the kicker arm and give it a matte black finish. and even the crash guard too return it too matte black.

EDIT: Mods please move this thread to motorbikes section.
