paint on new r1??

i saw a new r1 photo, the frame and some body pannels were in black. does anyone know if the frame is a flat black, or a satin finnish? how about the body would it be considered flat black also?? i'm giving some thought to replicating this on my bike with some changes.. thanks

the frame is a satin finish.it's the same as my '02 r1.the body work is gloss.the red flames should be a decal,most likely not clear coated over.so far the only clear coated decal have been on the tanks.

my wife left our cammera outside one night a couple of weeks ago. you can guess it did rain too... i waited a couple of days before turning it on.. it worked but only on the charger.. the next day it didn't at all.. i just ordered a new bat. hopefully.... i just asked to borrow a friends cammera ... we'll see. i'd love to show some pix. the results were amazing..
