- Black swing arm is an improvement - looks great
- Black radiator shrouds are a must - this is the reason I went for black in 2010. Silver painted plastic just looks cheap. That is, it looks like silver painted plastic.
IMO a blacked out headlight is all it takes to transform the Versys into a really nice looking bike. I look at it every day and recently discovered - hey - it doesn't look all that bad, actually. In fact, it looks hot. Where the only thing I did is have the silver plastic surrounding the headlight blacked out. And the MRA screen installed, which looks better than stock.
The new colors are both great though I think the yellow could easily do with a black swing arm, too. Very much like the black parts above the footrest, they're on both 2012 bikes.
The yellow also needs a blacked out headlight frame, of course.
