+1 on the white one
Just talked to BMWNA Customer Service and the guy said they're not switching color schemes for 2010. He said he's gotten a few calls about this already and desn't know where it's coming from, because it's simply not true! Just internet forum rumor. Besides, these alternate color scheme pics are just horrible Photoshop jobs. You can plainly see the jagged pixel edges on the color transitions! LOL!
Everyone's so gullible!! If BMW was actually going to switch then they'd announce it and take some actual pictures of the real bikes with real paint on them. They wouldn't put out cheesy edited Photoshop pics!! LOL.
Umm, they are actually, I already have deposit on a arctic white '10, not sure if you're just trolling or trying to squash peoples hopes of something new. Why would the buildsheet say "arctic white"?
*edit...im too slow
You might want to check your source....2010 colors are artic white or orange/black. I was just at the dealer and could have ordered either of these colors
It is ALPINE white, not arctic, as far as I know.
But Griz knows all. He talked to the customer service guy!!
After seeing those pictures Orange is not SO bad. I could learn to live with it. It just makes me think of KTM when I see it.
At least then I could get this helmet to match!

Sorry guys, I'll stop. I'll believe the new colors thing when I see them at dealerships or riding around though.
In the meantime I'll kill my MinnKota..........
I've got my white F800GS on order at my BMW dealer and I'm supposed to be the first on the list but I was also the guy that had the 09 yellow one on hold until, oops, I showed up expecting it to be there!
I talked about this thread with the service rep and he estimated a $1,000 dollars to do whatever I want with out going crazy with the color scheme. That includes the painting and labor and the biggest labor cost is if I want the gas tank pulled off to be painted which I do.
They can also include the price of this in the "official sell price" if you want to finance it and do it before you take delivery of the bike.
Picking up my new 2010 white F800 tomorrow
Dealer has 1 orange F800 left
Post some trail worthy pix asap please.
I picked up an orange one this weekend. I like it a lot. The orange is metallic and changes colors slightly depending on the light. They had a white one waiting to get picked up and I liked that one surprisingly more than I thought I would. Both colors are better than last year which I thought was great.
Will do as soon as I transfer skid plate and crash bars off of my 09 f800
In the mean time just picture this one in white
First time for me off of asphalt. Rocky Mtn National Park's Old Fall River Road. Lots of fun except for the dust kicked up by the cages. The switchbacks had a lot of loose sand but the bike handled it with no problems.
Digging on the dark green one. Has anyone gone out for a ballpark quote on getting the panels painted?
Mine was originally shipped yellow. I wanted grey but was going to have to wait 2 extra months. I painted it charcoal:
Now I'm bored again. The bike is 90% sanded again and ready for a new color. I like orange but not the BMW shade, I'd like more of a KTM colour. Maybe a Kawasaki lime green? Can someone with photochop skills whip that one up for me?
Here Ya Go!
Thanks! It looked better in my head.... I'm leaning toward KTM orange at the moment but that will likely change 3 times today.
How are you painting GNP? Rattle can? Paint gun? How long does R&R of the panels take?
my F800GS / 2 cents : dealer was gonna paint it matte black ? I thought ... what a waste !! So told him 'Go with a royal blue' /// Do like that blue 'n white though
