Those with huggers. Black or color matched?

I have decided to order a Ermax hugger and can't decide on color.
My visualization skills haven't been working on this one. Every time I look at the bike I am back and forth between black and matching.
Just curious what most have gone with given a choice.

I have a black Ermax hugger, but my bike is black.
A friend of mine has the red bike like yours and that has black as well

I am going to either go silver to match the swingarm or I am going to get the two color hugger that is silver with the imperial red to match the bike.

Yellow 2010 with the yellow/silver pyramid hugger. Looks great and fits like a glove.

My "09" with a 'skidmarx' Hugger.
I went with 'matching the swing-arm'.
I don't see it much and am happy with the results. The paint is Factory Ducati silver and was free as the shop had some left-over from painting a Ducati 1098!
A good match and free is always good.
hope this helps.

Black Powerbronze on my black V. However, hugger would be black whatever the colour of the bike was.

Mine is the Skidmarx gloss black version and I left it that color to make it as unobtrusive as possible. With the Givi V35 bags mounted it's hardly noticeable at all and I like that. It's there to do a job (in my opinion) and not to show itself off. The bike is proud enough of itself already. I don't want it to become arrogant.

I'd go for black matte. So they can't look THAT dirty.

That looks great! How was the customer service from Streetfighters by Design? So far they haven't gotten back to me on price/availability.

Yeah....sometimes they can be a little hard to get through to...but over all I'd say be patient.
I'd certainly do business with them again.
