Photochop?

http://mvagusta.net/gallery/brutale910/GIX_6754

Look at the chain as it passes over the front part of the rear wheel.

That is weird, looks like they must've blackened the rims post photo shoot.

Thats what I thought at 1st, but if you look close, the black covers 1/2 of one link and 1/2 of another.

There you go I fixed it and while I was in there I painted it for you - you like it in green? [yuck] or Yellow - MV, Orange is not a good color for your bikes it belongs on a Harley or a Triumph imo.... no doubt I will change my mind once I see one... lol!

However, back to my intent of post... This is "supposed" to be and "official" color no? This site seems to bill it as such. If so, then why is it a photoshopped image?

A possible answer your question - I suspect they decided to go with dark wheels after they had already shot the new orange Brute in the studio, and it was too much of a nightmare to redo the whole job just because the bike had silver wheels - photoshop to the rescue. I used to shoot for Chanel - they would regularly pay me $5500 a day for raw images then put $80,000 into the photoshop work and $120,000 for a full page monthly add in Vogue. In this case to 'fix' the wheels cost $500 to reshoot $5000.
