Any rumors of what will be in 2019 models?

Just curious if there has been any rumors about what if anything Honda may be thinking about in 2019 for the Rebel 300 and 500?

No, other than color for the ABS models went from BLACK to MATTE SILVER.

That, and the new blue color option.

Honda makes very few if any changes from year to year except color.

I'm expecting at least some changes made to the Rebel in the future. If not by 2019, then at least by 2020, seeing as there are some slight issues with the bike.
The speedo issue has been sorted out, but you still have the back fender issue with the friction, the recall for one of the breather tubes was it? Not sure if that's a thing in the past yet.
Many have issue with premature burnout of the headlight bulb, and the indicators as well, which Honda was looking into last I heard.
So there are some things to tidy up on.
Even if it's a Honda, it's not hard to see that the Rebel was made cheap in some aspects.

Apart from all the functional issues, will there be any cosmetic changes or upgrades within the next two years.

Haven't caught any info on that aspect, thus far.
And in my opinion, I don't think we can expect any changes made on that part either.
The Rebel was made to be changed and played with, so why would they make an effort doing anything different with it now? It wouldn't make sense, it would basically just be money out the window for Honda at this point.
No, Honda delivered what they said they would, a blank canvas.

Knowing Honda, they will probably stop making it in 2019 and then reboot it in seven years. I'm not sore about the VFR...
