BMW F800GS (new) Color Options

I like many of you am waiting on delivery of a 800GS, hopefully by Xmas. I doubt I'm the only one who's blown away by the current color offerings by BMW. With that in mind I took it upon myself to offer up some alternate color suggestions. I ordered the magnesium/grey color and will most likely be sending my panels out for a custom paint job. I'm also toying around with the idea of customizing the "GS" decal.

I've narrowed down my color options below. What do you all think?




















…and one for all the KTM guys! ;)

I don't think you can make that bike look ugly, I'd take any of those! It's like the F650GS, they keep asking me what color I want and I keep telling them I don't care! I've never seen a bike that looks good in every color, but these do.

Ha! I'm definitely leaning towards the dark green. Perhaps the "GS" branding would need to be replaced by a WWII black star. :)

Sorry. End of a 12 hour shift, and my tolerance for ignorance was running on short supply.

The black looks good. If you want a earth, enviro frendly machine, (as the saying goes, GO GREEN). If you are having a hard time choosing between a KTM and the 800, goe orange. I thought they all looked good though.

I'd pick one of the two greens.

Probably the lighter one.

I like #2 or #3 but then again I'm partial to blue. The F800PD (Pimp Daddy) is definitely an aquired taste.

It is a coin toss between the two greens for me. Call it!
