2. Rothmans Honda

Cigarette sponsors provided some of the coolest paint schemes in the 1980’s and the navy blue design transferred perfectly from the packet to coat the dominant Honda’s of the late 80s era of Grand Prix racing.

What would it look good on:  With the latest motorcycle offerings from Honda having a limited fairing canvas this design would probably be more suitable for the older modern superbikes from the Japanese manufacturer.

What about the Suzuki Telefonica's ?

Fantastic looking, I also happen to own a 2002 Telefonica.

the Rothmans scheme still looks amazing! Would have liked to have seen the Cadbury's Boost scheme in there though!

IVE JUST BOUGHT A HONDA ON AN 05 PLATE CBR FIREBLADE PAINTED UP IN THE 7 STARS COLOURS AND THAT IS WHAT ATTRACTED ME TO IT IN THE FIRST PLACE AS THE BIKE LOOKS TOTALLY AMAZING. ONE OF THE NICEST PAINT JOBS I HAVE SEEN FOR A LONG TIME ON A BIKE...BIG E

Not sure I'd make all the same picks - Telefonica was a great livery, so was the Go!!!!!!!!! livery that Rossi ran. If this pic link works, tho' here's a pic of my 600rr with Rothmans skins, and a set of white wheels - just like Mick. (Couldn't go for the gold - don't like Freddie Spencer nearly as much as I do Mick Doohan, and don't like gold wheels, much either).

Just finishing a 2003 GSXR 1000 Yoshimura replica. Marlboro's are all over same with telefonica's. Best color scheme you can put on a gsxr.
