Next I added dirt and scratches to the bike to avoid having a CG look and make it more grounded and convincing. I wanted to suggest the bike belonged to somebody or was used in the army (Fig.16 - 17). I used a combination of Hard and Airbrushes with Scatter parameters to achieve the desired look.

The nature of the materials of the bike are mainly shown through the highlights. The design required less of a polished surface to make it more stealthy and sharp. To me polished vehicles represent luxury rather than combat (Fig.17).

I added decals to represent that the bike has been manufactured by a company for a squad or a team (Fig.18).The lights I added were to augment the aggressiveness of the bike, which is very important for a combat vehicles (Fig.18 - 19).

I made the background darker in a manner to draw more attention to the vehicle. It's always better to have a plain background with depth to highlight designs. I also added a little color balancing (Fig.20).
