Personally I chose white because it is to be the rare color, looks sick in person and in the light, and did not want to be mistaken for a 1098. I think a traditionalist would chose red (which I did like) but when I looked at the red black combo it looked like a red ninja. The white could be mistaken for a yamaha I guess as well but the thump thump thump will be the tell!:yo:
When it comes to Ducati you can almost say red is "common", that's not to say they don't look sweet in red!!! The white is the unusual in this case, which is why I went with it, not to mention (as everyone has been saying) the Pearl White looks AWESOME in all different kinds of light.
I think choice of colours depends on your personal views and your prospects on keeping the bike or moving it in the future.
Red is the choice if you want it to look good in the longtime (I personally think that white is a bit of a fashion-colour at this moment). Saw the two in the flesh today and must admit that white looks good. But would get red myself, will never go out of fashion and is the one that will be the easier to sell in a couple of years. Hope these pics help you:
changing it to another colour is always possible but quite intensive. White bike has different colour of frame so repainting it means a complete rebuild. Unless you don't mind mixing them up.
I would consider changing the front wheel cover anyway (Maybe painting it body-colour or going for carbon). In standard form it looks unpainted, same thing with the bottom of the fairing.
And if you are ever in the game for a different colour: Why not look for a complete exclusive paint-job. Ferrari-racing-red? Later GP7 have the same body-colour as the F1 Ferrari of late and F430 Scuderia. Don't know how much that would cost though....
