Ah, je vous dis bienvenue au Forum Rebel 3 Fred! I got my "matte grey" last week, dealer found one sooner then expected, have been enjoying it already for some 500 km's. Hope your's will arrive soon!

Merci à tous

I tried the demo model and, even if I know that the Rebel does not match my requirements at all, I've been wanted it too much.
I have a NC750X, with integrated trunk and top case. I drive 30 miles of highway every day.

So you can imagine how far I am from the reason.

Fred, I traded in a NC700D Integra with top and side cases, so I know what you mean, there goes comfort and luggage practicality. I don't regret it one bit, this thing has the looks and is ultra manageable, you're not carrying around acres of plastic, back to the basics of motorcycling.

Thx.
No, and I don't see what "paint protection" can be. Sort of plastic film, maybe?

The only thing I really want to (but not sure to spend money on this) is to change that sad color (black or red did not suit me either).

Ah yes, and change the grips by Biltwell models.

Wrap it! I'll be doing that soon after I get mine so I can better assess color options. Since there so little to wrap and their fairly straight forward pieces, it'll be about $50, and take less than a day.

Welcome to the forums. Wrapping it is always a nice option as it's easier and cheaper then getting it painted and it will preserve the original paint. BUT if you were to get it painted... what color would you go for?

Paint protection film is like a layer of clear coat that you can remove and replace once its worn out or is beyond what any amount of polishing or maintaining can fix. But most guys that maintain the film keep it looking good for life

I think these kind of things are not common around here

I think I have a preference for light blue, like old cars.
But currently, it's like this:
