One can flexible rubber bumper primer (DON'T USE REGULAR AUTO PRIMER ON PLASTIC FAIRINGS OR THE FINISH WILL CRACK AFTER 6 MONTHS), 2 colour spray cans and 4 clear coat cans will do the entire bike.
You will also need a painting greaser, lint free rags, small flexible rubber sanding block and wet paper in 400, 800, 1200 and 2000 plus some fine after paint rubbing compound. Headlight restorer works as a course rubbing compound but something finer is also needed.
You can get the paint supplies at any auto paint store and they can mix you up a custom colour from any car colour you like, just give them the make model and year and they can look it up. Ex. Porsche Mexican Blue or Tesla Green, Kawasaki Spark Black (Versys 2010)
Professional primer and clear coat in a can is usually better than the cheap stuff at the hardware store.
Use a small tube of auto body glaze to fill in deep scratchs first and sand to 800 before primer. Auto paint will not stick without primer and an oil fingerprint free surface. Allow lots of cure time before sanding or differing coats. In total maybe half day of work plus two weeks for project with cure times.
After clear coat has cured, hit with a very light sanding with 2000 or finer grit to remove orange peel then fine rubbing compound then wax.
There are many how to videos on youtube.
