I picked up a 2020 R1250R last year as a replacement for my beloved 06 Ducati Sport 1000, which advancing arthritis was making riding less enjoyable.
My R was factory black, and while beautiful, a bit boring. I missed the burnt yellow of my Sport Classic.
So, over the winter, transformed! Makes me happy!

Nice. Is it painted or wrapped?

Nice and nicely done. Didn't care for color at first glance but warmed up to it quickly, funny how that works.

There's an old quote out there somewhere about doing a full restoration of a classic vehicle, then being free to paint it any color you want, your work your choice, no harm no foul. While I get the thought of retaining the (or an) original color, I think that's a great reward for a resto well-done.

Well-done and Enjoy!

Cheers, Dave

Thanks everyone for the positive feed back.
Very much looking forward to less tinkering and more riding now.
Am still waiting on a rear hugger.
