matte black 1000

Saw two of the new matte black F4-1000 today at the dealership for the first time. hmmmmmm didnt really like it. tough to see the beautiful lines of the bike. looks dirty even when its clean. different than the SPR black, darker. well someone will love it. Still think the blue/silver is the nicest. (hides)

I like the black one, but it's difficult to clean I guess. Maybe the blue/silver one is the nicest at the moment.

The SPR is a much better matte black.

The 2006 F4-1000 matte black is a true matte black vs the SPR which looks more like a matte black/gray like a clean chalkboard.

I'm not a big fan of the 2006 matte black color as it is very sedate and doesn't pop out at you.

So is the SPR matte black a painted finish? does anyone know how to duplicate it?

It is a painted finish. Matte finishes are usually hard to replicate. That is why a lot of people paint their entire bikes when they wad them up vs buying new plastics. However, a OE plastic part should match well.

I don't know if the SPR or the 2006 Matte uses a Matte eggshell clear coat or not however. I would assume they do for durability.

Where can I find pictures of this bike on the net? Is matte black a production colour option in 06?
