The red looks much more menacing. I'd wanna read the issue and see it in the context of the story before giving my opinion, though.

I will go with blue until proven otherwise.  Unlike what we see here there will only rarely be a red background to blend into.

I vote blue for now. I think it fits his cool attitude.

I say blue. Red makes him look meaner.

The blue is much more easier on the eyes (no, I'm not saying Dick is easy on the eyes, as I'm a guy) and less vibrant agianst the red outfit.
 
I do agree with huntress in waiting till the story to give context to decide completely

Well I guess in red he loses his stealth advantage.

I generally like the blue outfit. The red seems too forced in order to make Nightwing "more bad ass, yeah, awesome!" Because everyone knows red is far more aggressive and the color of blood. Yeah! 
 
With DC seemingly trying to young-ify, and up the 'bad ass' on the Universe with this revamp, I am wary of any changes similar (Harley Quinn) to this palette change. It almost feels like DC is attempting to appeal to a lower common denominator at some points.  
 
With that said, I actually like the red. Red and black is a tried and true color scheme, and the red eyes look groovy and intimidating. But it needs to work in the breadth of the entire book for me to accept it. How does that happen? Haven't a clue. At this point, I like it, but it doesn't feelright, if that makes any sense. So, hopefully, in the scope of the first few issues of "Nightwing" DC can make placate my neurosis and give me that 'all clear' feeling with the character.

I like the red, but I just want to point out that the anatomy on the new cover is really poorly done. I'm not an artist, but his legs are drawn very strangely -- they remind me of frog legs -- and the way that his neck is outstretched like that is unnatural. A really bad cover if you ask me. And I'm not a huge fan of the red skies that seem to be a feature of the Bat-covers. Gotham is best as a dark, rainy, dreary city.

I think the new Nightwing costume is the best thing about the relaunch
 
Kyle Higgins said in an interview that Dick is his favorite comic book character and that Chuck Dixon's run on Nightwing was what got him reading monthly comics and that....well I'll just quote it out
 

He's my all-time favorite character. I'm not saying that as lip service. Literally, he was my way into DC comics when I was younger and in grade school. I remember stumbling across issue #15 or #16 of the Chuck Dixon/Scott McDaniel book where it's Nightwing on the cover fighting Man-Bat and his clothes are shredded. From there, I went back and started finding the earlier issues. It's really the first book I started collecting every month. From that point on, I read every issue that was ever published. So Nightwing is what kept me in comics and reading comics.
 
We're really hitting the ground running, and we're starting with Dick Grayson as Nightwing. We're stating that he's the best he's ever been, simply because he was just Batman, but it's really a new start for the character.
 
That's a big part of what we're doing in the series. I don't think you could do a Nightwing book at this point without dealing with the fact that he was just Batman. I'm not sure I should say much more than that, except that one of the reasons he's Nightwing now is because of him just being Batman. You'll have to keep reading to find that out.

But in terms of his skills and confidence level, Nightwing has an even greater experience behind him now. So in our comic, he's become the best version of Nightwing that he's ever been. It's what has made him better.

@danhimself: That quote just sold me on the title.
 
I like blue, I don't want just about every member of the Bat-Family wearing red, Tim, Jason, Damian, and now Dick.
I feel it suits Dick better too, red makes him look very angry.

Red costume: 
 - Pro: similar to batman beyond costume 
 - Con: basically a modified version of the nipples movie costume 
 
But I think we all know what the best is, blue and GOLD: 
 

At the very least, bring back the hair.

I prefer the Blue but I'm thinking this is something to do with having the former Robins all in red.

I liked the blue. When they have the full range of Batfamily standing together on a cover or something, it looked better. Its obvious they are trying to inject all the former Robins into a red costume, but why? DIck has been his own man since his and Bruce's falling out, and i think his blue shows that. Red makes it seem like he's still trying to fit in...
 plus, if he wanted red, he would be Flamebird.

I like the red better, it seems a bit more of a homage to his past. Plus I think every hero needs a revamp in style every now and then. Doesn't mean he can't go back to blue later on or perhaps a new colour.

I like the blue... too much red in the Batfamily, lol. Plus the red (essp with the red lenses) makes him look so intimidating and mean... and Dick isn't a mean guy.

I like both, thus, I'm fine with the red. I thought the change in color had a reason behind it, though. Like, his tenure as Batman turned him into a somewhat darker character and he changed his suit a bit to reflect that. That would have made it better for me

Blue, the red reminds me of the costume that Chris odonell wore in the movie batman and robin.
