    Black seems to be a popular choice

    when I picked mine up on Saturday there were two people who were going to place an order for a black one after seeing mine. I have to say I did not know whether I would like black as much as the Lupin Blue but it really looks so much better 'in the flesh' I love it...

    We'll see ... one thing is certain ... both are faster than the Blue. :D

    The back bike does look gorgeous, but I still prefer the Granite Grey for the matte finish and the better match with the luggage and valve covers. But black bikes are sweet ... my previous bike was black.

    I have to say if Granite Grey was still available it might have pipped the black?

    No comment since it is your new bike. :D

    Hint - Andy doesn't like to admit it but the engine spoilers is what makes the Granite Grey faster than his Lupin Blue. Makes the bike more aerodynamic as it smoothens out the air under the engine. The Canadian Flag sticker on my side fairings makes mine even faster. :D

    Everything is faster than the grey one - obviously!

    You can still pick the Pearl White/Red Frame colour option. I did...
    And I must admit, I did not dare pick the Frozen Bronze because it looks like a "Chocolate Bike" on the computer screen (too afraid it might melt in sunlight)... But I'll bet it will look so much better in real life...
    Didn't have the guts for it and... the panniers and topcase just match so nicely with the grey of the Ducati Colour Variant of the RS..

    The Ducati Coloured RS comes with belly pans... ought to be at least just as fast as the Granite Grey, possibly somewhat faster as the Pearl White colour bounces off most fotons from the sun light (propelling it forward as the front area is smallest) where the Granite Grey absorbs most.

    You made a good choice. I think that the brown RS is a complete "fail" (as they say these days, grammar be damned) and will prove to be a loss leader (as if the RS needed any help among their lineup). The GS comes in a very dark metallic brown as well, but that is a whole 'nother story. Beautiful colour, even if it is a bit of an "elegant" colour given that bike's mission profile. Can't see what BMW bike this Frozen Bronze suits ...
