Wink New member, Which Colour.

Hello All.
Had quite a shock last week.Woke up one morning to discover i was 50!! (Oh the shame!)
In order to take my mind off my advancing years,my very wonderfull wife is letting me swap my RSV FACTORY for a new F41000s!
But now i have a happy problem.....As in i do not know which colour to get.My local dealer has both "traditional" red over silver and a very "stunning" silver over blue.I have ordered the bike but told him i will confirm the colour choice on Monday.
The silver over blue appeals but would it be better regarding resale (a very long time away i must add) and spares to stick with the traditional colours.

Welcome Johns6809!!
My opinion for the colour.In Italy,You know there are so much Mv,red and silver are so much,blu and silver is more rare...
But in this weeks Luca Scassa go fast in Italian and world Superstock with R versin red and silver....
Both are fantastic,my opinion is to take your favourite color..

MV's always raced in red and silver so IMHO it's the only colour! In fact, it was only in the last few years of racing that the Count even allowed any advertising to spoil the colours!

The silver and blue looks fantastic They had both the red and silver and blue and silver side by side at the Cycle World show and I have to admit, my eyes kept going to the blue and silver. Although like every one has said, they are both extremely beautiful bikes. Can't go wrong

between those 2 colors I will go with red/silver... but do what your heart wants, resale value? how dare you even think about that?!?!?! j/k

I seriously doubt the color scheme matters to the buyers, but I remember in one of the thread a while back there were more traditionalist here liking the red/silver than hte silver/blue.

Yeah matte black gets my vote too. Out of the two on offer I think for me it would come down to flipping a coin.
