Also think it looks cool , so lots of options for those that don't want the "run of the mill " Tri colour that seems the most popular .

It looks as though the stripes are decals applied on top of the white and then clear coated on the tank. The other panels seem to have decals on top

Thanks Juha,
Great picture, that Africa Twin decal confirms what I was guessing. Greatly appreciated.

Diamondgeezer,


Check out the wraps or decals from SignatureCD that Rory sent in.
Maybe you'll like some of them better than the Cadbury wrappers.
Or maybe you just want to eat all the Caramilk bars....LOL

It's actually a mixture!

Rub your hand over the tank and it's smooth, possibly painted blue centrally, white on the flanks, and possibly a red decal all of which are lacquered over.

The front panels, and rear seat side panels are painted white, and all of the detail is a decal that is not laquered over.

All of the colours are metallic.

It isn't glaringly obvious of the two differing finishes, as the colour matches are exact. The lack of clear coat on the side panels is really only detected by rubbing your hand over them and feeling the edge of the decal.

Thanks Bob,


My bike is a silver DCT model which I'm not particularly excited about.
I was thinking of having the outer rims and bars anodized gold or buying
just the outside rim in gold, if I can. Then I'll paint all of my pieces the white colour, which almost looks like a white metallic pearl paint. My bike won't
be here until late June/Early July. Thanks very much for the information
you sent me, now I know what I have to do.
