    I like the idea of my track bike and street bike matching. But I got new fairings for the Track bike and will need to paint. My brother in-law thinks I should go all black.
    What say you?

    White looks so much better. The black makes the bike look small.

    Thank you everyone for the input. When I went to buy the bike back in 2012 off the floor I was walking over to sign paperwork on a Dark EVO 848, but I was not liking that it did not come in a red frame. My wife saw the white one and and ask what about that one..
    The track bike I built from scratch so it’s my chance to have what I wanted.. and it’s the best of both worlds salt & pepper :)

    Nice looking bikes!

    My vote is white.

    I plan on never selling these, not like I’d get a fraction of what I put into them not even counting my labor. I pulled both engines, crated them up shipped the to Georgia to have them printed, more thank 4K per.. :/

    It’s not really a fair comparison as the track bike has track fairings and the bigger screen ( I don’t like the screen looks but it’s necessary). The street bike has the stock fairings, lights etc..

    I think the black one looks mean and the white one looks sexy. I like them both differently

    I would have left it white IMHO. Both bikes are looking good.

    IMO Ducatis only belong in white and red.

    Ducatis are the one bike that just dont look good in black to me.

    Ducati makes some of the sexiest bikes on the planet and showing off the bodies curves and lines mean you need to stay away from black. Black hides the beautiful and subtle bodywork.

    In the process of de-chroming....
    I have a 15' Monster 1200s in white. I want so bad to powder coat the frame red. I always thought the white and red was dead sexy. Nice looking bikes.

    Red has been there staple, and they've played with yellow. White I think is fairly modern, but they've done away with the trellis frame and that is sad..

    They really are not that hard to tear down to frame I've had both these to frame a few times.
