I like the Fizik Microtex Classic, myself. It's kind of a pain to wrap, but once done it stays put. It's neither sticky nor slippy, it cleans well, and it's comfy. It's a pain to wrap because it's not really stretchy, but on the plus side it's also tough so it's not a problem using a fair amount of tension to keep it flat around the curves.

With a red and white bike, I'd use white - in fact I DID use white on my red and white bike - because you'll never match the red. Same reason not to use red tires on a red bike.
