Paintng the Side Fairings and Belly Pan

Hi! I've just bought a Blue Versys and was thinking about some colour options to make the bike stand out a bit more. I've used my friend's Orange Versys as a model guinea pig and did some Photoshopping to his bike. Pls note that my PS colour matching skill is very rough but i think you'll get the idea...What I've done here is created several colour options with the Givi Panniers, Belly Pan, Engine Side Fairing and the Radiator Side Fairing.. Pls feel free to comment...

I agree, but the silver cases ruin it for me.

I just don't like the look of it at all. There's no flow to it. It's too piece meal, particularly that colored belly pan. And, yeah, the silver panniers are just plain fugly. I like the black.

Just my opinion...

Yup.. I do agree the silver coloured panniers don't fit in. The blue which would seem like an obvious choice puts too much blue to the whole theme.. I think I'll go with a gloss black for the panniers then. As for the belly pan and the engine side fairing, it will be blue. And the radiatior fairing will be matt Black. We'll see how the finished product looks in a coupe of weeks time... Thanks for your input!!!
