There is also a 3rd option - red(gloss).

I will most likely go with gloss black , while I like the matte finish as well I prefer to have some contrast between the engine which is already powder coated matte and the body.

Denim black all the way for me :D
But I think the fairing will be gloss finish black tho ,that's a bummer when u buy a denim black & also red coz it looks out of place and cheapish :p
So one has to remove the fairing if they are not buying vivid black...

I think the current display/test rides have gloss fairing because of production issues , expect the final release to have uniform finish. Not sure about the red one though...

The fairing probably comes down a different production line, maybe even from a vendor, and it is just cheaper and simpler to paint them all one color. Simplifies production and inventory. They all get denim black radiator shrouds and battery covers too.

Mine is denim black too... :)

I might remove the fairing incase if the shade is different. Or atleast check the possibility of painting it to denim black.

they both have their pros and cons

matte black doesnt have to be polished or waxed but it can scratch and when it does it can't be fixed

gloss black needs to be polished and waxed to be maintained but when scratched can be fixed.

I really like the red option we've seen floating around the threads...



I don't particularily like the look of the black speed screen with the red tins, but c'est la vie I'll be swapping for a bikini fairing anyways. Should be able to color match from the bike itself, any painter worth salt can figure that out :D...
