I prefer the snakeskin ones. They look good and are functional. Either way you go, you will be pleased.

At its core, the Ninja ZX-10R is a motorcycle built for the accomplished rider who can fully appreciate its capabilities--whether put to the test at a racetrack, or merely the focus of bench-racing conversation. It is, by all standards, the embodiment of the ultimate superbike.

I have the snakeskin ones and they do grip well... maybe too well... they are tearing up my new leathers. Would not recommend on the back of the tank. Both styles are a quality product.

I have the snakeskin but I actually didn't install the frame piece. Works excellent

I was going to get this, but I think it would pull the hair on my legs when I was wearing my shorts.
