Solid or graphics?

Ramping up to upgrade to an Arai corsair X. I can live with some of the graphics, but they've always looked a bit outdated to me compared to other manufactures. Now I'm beginning to contemplate a solid color (black or black frost) and was curious on how many of you guys rock solid color as opposed to graphics on your lid?

The new 2017 Arai Corsair X "Schwantz" is nice. It's not out yet but it looks awesome. It's old school with simple graphics. Schwantz 93 You can see it on the Arai website.

Graphic. Hopefully someone you like. Solid color is too boring.

Being a Panigale owner with a Jap budget, I definitely wouldn't pay for the decorations that aren't even unique or individual. Way back when I had my Shoei airbrushed with a design of my own and the cost for plain black plus airbrush was still below the replicas'. The guy is still active. Here is a taste: Mike Tamás - Galéria - Sisak

I'm an Arai guy too...but I agree...nothing in their current line-up appeals to me aesthetically...and I'm due for a new bucket. I'd love to find someone on the West Coast to airbrush one!

This corsair X is appealing but dang, the mark up over the base corsair x is nutty....close to if not $1000 just for Ducati graphics!
