New paint for the Ninjette?

I’m toying with the idea of having the Ninjette painted.

I absolutely adore the 1989 color scheme:

 

But y’all know me — I love red bikes.    So I asked STN to whip me up a Photoshop of the paint scheme inverted, and I really like this one too (I would have black wheel rims, though, don’t worry 🙂 ):

 

 

Hrmmmm.   The white in either case would be a shimmery pearl white (yum) and the red in either case would be a deep red, like the color of my 2001 SV650S, or probably pretty close to Kawasaki’s own Candy Persimmon Red.

Decisions, decisions!

    Sorry about teasing you a little bit with the pink and white option in that thread, but in all seriousness, there’s just something about a white bike – particularly white with a little metal flake in it. Your original photo above is really nice. I say go for it! 🙂

      No apology necessary! I actually did think about incorporating pink, but I love deep red so much and I think it would clash way too much. I’m definitely leaning towards the white. Maybe with thicker red lines.

        I agree! Maybe try removing the existing red stripes in Photoshop if you can, then play around with some different, more pronounced striping designs for the secondary red color.
