You see they have used the blue bike and gold wheels, are they trying to copy the subaru's when they used the blue impreza and had gold wheels?

I dont know if its just me, but i personally just like either one or two colours. I dont seem to click with the three colours e.g. blue, black AND white. Blue and black would have been nice, but IMO the white breaks it up.
