Well, the day has come for the Repsol Honda Team to move into a new season with a new set of team colours. Gone is the Blue and in comes the white.
The old scheme has been going for many years and am sure many will be think the old colours are still the best.
For me, its progress albeit with black and white go faster strips.
It does however a couple of issues.
Late last year Honda launched an array of bikes including the 2013 CBR1000RR in Repsol Colours. With the scheme change, this years bike has last years colours! I hope that they will offer new customers the choice of the old team colours versus the new team colours. If I hand just taken delivery of a shiney new Repsol CBR1000RR and found out that Honda has dropped the scheme, I would certainly be miffed!
For me it also represents a similar issue. Do I bring my bike in line with the 2013 CBR1000RR repsol colours or do I bite the bullet and go for a custom paint job based on the new the latest team colours launched today.
I think i will be sitting on the fence for a while until my other upgrades are complete.
