That is exactly what BMW had planned as a way for new GT owners to be able to recoup the expense of a new bike. It would also be a safety feature since everyone would be trying to read the message, they would inevitably be more aware of the bike's presence.
What's the significance (and the point) of Japanese characters on a German bike??
Actually, it is entirely pointless to attempt a color scheme on a 3D object, with a 2D program like photoshop. The REAL bike is not a 2-D object. Shift your point of view slightly (in 3D) and the attempt at continuing the white stripe on the fairing, on to the tank almost a foot behind, and the result will appear like a total disconnect.
Personally, if I buy a bike this expensive, the last thing I'd want is to look like some boy racer. But that's just my take.
