2013 STR - Graphite or White??

Hi to all.

So I am looking at putting a deposit down on a 2013 STR. I can't make my mind up between the Crystal White and the Matte Graphite.

I love white bikes and cars (modded) ... but the white STR looks a little to racerboy and, dare I say, a little feminine (no offense intended ... it's a beautiful bike).

The graphite feels like the right way to go, but the pictures available right now just aren't doing it justice. I would order with the flyscreen and bellypan ... other planned mods would be mirrors, tail tidy, removal of passenger pegs, removal of the hideous red accents.

So what do you guys think? White or Graphite??

Like I said - I did not mean to offend. I don't think previous models in white looked racey ... actually, I would have loved a 2010 in white. Perhaps it's the red accents I'm reacting to (which I don't like better on the Graphite either).

Fair enough ... in the end, that's what'll happen. Just interested to hear what others are thinking about the new look/colours.

I dunno....

A Street Triple is a fairly high performance motorcycle, with sharp handling, good acceleration and braking, all suitable for a really decisive rider....
