Carefully Considered pixelates Husaberg

Galleries -

By

We’re really digging the custom graphics UK firm Carefully Considered has created for the Husaberg FE 390. Referencing rather than copying digital camo, the design uses subtle touches of contrasting colors on the grips and spring to really pop the whole look. “Pixel” perfectly captures the purpose of dirt bikes while remaining just flashy enough to fit into the culture surrounding them.

    If by “referencing” you mean copying and enlarging
    and shifting color just slightly.
    This pattern is just a larger print copy, rip off MARPAT.

    It would have been cool like 10 years ago.

    I love it, MARPAT rip-off or not. Would’ve been cool 10 years ago, still cool today.

    Digital Camo Husaberg Super Motard here I come! Love the subtle contrast with the red grips and rear shock.

    Big thumbs up- love the contrasting grips/spring. Darker greens are utterly unrepresented on motorcycles.

    If I had the $$ (I don’t), that would be my next bike, with those graphics.

    Thanks for the pictures, though. I can still drool for free.

    God Wes, have you ever ridden a dirtbike, hit the local track? do you just stare at the pretty colors on the skid plate? if only the skid plate matched your boots… sigh

    PS. I’d love to ROOST you!

    So I showed this to my boss today at lunch. I’m work for a little shop called thumper racing, and in case you cant guess, we specialize in 4-stroke singles.

    The boss man is big into motocross, used to race desert, and represents your average dirt bike guy pretty well. He took one look at this thing, and just shook his head.

    As a GSXR riding canyon aficionado, I look at this, and see pure beauty. This is what I wish motocross bikes looked like.

    It’s kinda sad that todays dirt bikes are covered in barb wire/splatter/tribal crap/energy drinks/etc. If there was a way I could somehow eradicate this kind of crap, and force good taste and clean design onto unsuspecting customers, I would do it in a heart beat.

    Damn that thing looks good.

    If this pattern is available in thin vinyl, this shouldn’t be too hard to reproduce. I’m drafting a message to my local sign guy right now…..

    Yeah, I like it. It’l be killer on my KTM 525, too.
