Possible paint scheme

Any comments, been playing around with Photoshop, as I still can't make my mind up what paint scheme to go for.

It's based on the RC1000V scheme, just wanted to see if it worked on the RC51.

Ditto on the angle on the tank, kinda funky. The RC's lines are unique and smooth, new blocky paint schemes might not work. Id like to see some other options though! Too much white on that one Imo...

Still looks ok tho man. Wondering how it would look if you switched the black and white parts around? Keep the tyres black tho

Looks really good, so good that I might have to steal that theme when I get my DPC race fairings.

Top marks for efforts, but I don't think it works better than the original european colour scheme combined with a Joey Dunlop Replica tail TBH. The sharp angles just don't look right...

Looks good. Nice job.

Before I got my RC I had all these ideas for changing the paint job but every time I look at it in the garage I can't imagine changing a thing.
