Off with the decals!

Got so motivated with this thread and the minimalist bare looks that I went ahead and ripped off the decals....well, not ripped off but carefully removed it. Did not even use a heat gun and they came off without any trouble or tears in five minutes. Only the belly pan created trouble and got the heat treatment that it asked for!!

Love the looks now. Plan to put some minimalist stickers on the tank sides.

Some pics (Sorry, but its a dreary, rainy day, Delhi is in the peak of Monsoons!):-









Cheers!

White Duke 390 No stickers

I haven't seen anyone else with a Duke 390 black or white that has no stickers but I rather like the look. Happy to receive advise on how to design it but if I don't find anything I'm happy with it like this.

The decal pack came with a larger variant, not sure if better. It will go edge to edge.

I was planning on taking all of the stickers off but when I got to the tank I changed my mind. I like the look of a naked bike but without any stickers it looks like China knockoff/replica.

100% agree. I've de-stickered many bikes in the past because I've always felt they looked better. The Duke needs them IMHO. It's a little bike playing in a big bike world. Taking the stickers off makes it look smaller and more subdued. No, this thing needs to jump up and down and scream "look at me, I may be small, but I can kick your a$$"
