Is THIS colour scheme familiar?

  1. You probably have to be over 40 :LOL:

    Honda has tweaked the pait-job on the CB-400, CycleTorque Magazine announced in its latest edition

  2. Looks sorta familiar, somewhere in the dim and distant past...
  3. oooooooool skool

    u want 1, dont u paul :)
  4. Oh yes, it is SO familiar..


    Honda CBX550, 1982-85

    I have owned 3 of them, although none in the "Rothmans" colours.

  5. I love it!
  6. I'm confused... isn't it exactly the same as last year?
  7. Yes it is, Paul's just going senile :p
  8. going?
  9. CycleTorque says that it is a 'variation' on last year's design.....
  10. I like it
  11. Then I guess they just got what we had all along, because apart from gold wheels it is identical to the picture on Honda Australia page Notice this is a page for 08 model, then you can compare it with the current page, which shows unchanged colour scheme.
  12. The naked version of the original CBX550 had it too. The original VF750 (F) was the same combination but with a different layout. It bears some resemblance to one of the '09 VFR800 colours as well as assorted other models over the years which haven't made it to here.
  13. I have no choice but to like it.
