Option 719 Midnight special edition

Do you like exclusive trips or do you strive towards something more exclusive? You decide. Our response: we have applied the complex water transfer process for the first time in motorcycle series production and this paintwork makes every bike unique. Option 719 Midnight depicts an entire galaxy. It represents an infinite number of places and spaces to discover. Each of its stars is unique and forms part of a bigger picture.

Insight into the factory

The time-consuming and labour-intensive painting process allowed us to carefully think through every step – from the very first pigment: the graphics have been calculated so that the overall picture is consistent after installation. Meteoric II dust metallic paintwork serves as the basis. The actual motif of the galaxy is applied from a backing film, which is activated in a water bath. In this process, pigments separate from the backing film and start to float.

As part of painting, we immerse the corresponding component in this bath to make pigments adhere to it. We are forced to manually carry out this process as a result of the water’s flow behaviour, the positioning of the graphic and the shape of the parts. Material sensitivity, immersion angle and speed are paramount. In other words: intuition. This makes each part a unique section of an entire galaxy. Finally, parts are finished with a high-gloss top coat.
