Default New colour scheme for CBR 954

Guys, anku is thinking of getting a new set of fairing with a new colour scheme. He wants your suggestions & photoshop ideas for it. I'm starting this thread on his behalf as his computers gone kaput.

This is the bikes colour at the moment.

how about a complete matt black make over? or does anku have any color in mind? my suggestion would be a single color scheme with contrasting smaller stickers that would make the bike more appealing.

It would be much easier to suggest if he likes any particular kind of colour/artwork . There is a huggge variety of colours/colour schemes to chose from. I personally would prefer one sinlgle colour, but he may like all the colours of rainbow on it . You see ?

Definitely, something like the Ducati's and the MV's. If not that, then maybe any of the below :

- Original Yellow / Black combination
- Original White / Blue combination

Here are some pics to help you choose better :

Where did you see this bike? I have a feeling you're talking about Stuarts bike. I know the guy. Was it a very loud bike?

The Repsol scheme is too common even in Bombay.

I have suggested this to him:

I would suggest go for some color combination or racing replicas. I feel in a single color paint job a bike looks like a prototype or under-testing bike. A bike should have some bright colors in combination.

Go for Nicky Hayden Repsol Racing Colors No. 69

I would say go for the current Honda F1 'Envoirnment' Livery! Its unique and should look good. It will stand out in the crowd and every mag in Mumbai would like to feature it.

Should always have something different.

Edit - @ Straight6 - thats 1000RR paint. It looks good too.
And about Repsol paint, yeah there are quite few in Mumbai, all are 46 fans, no one has 69, i guess!

No he doesn't. His jacket is red/black and the helmet is red/white so I've suggested he stick with those three colours.
