Starting this thread off with some of the pictures Honda has been pushing hard as of late, just to get everyone acquainted with the Rebel as these are very high quality photos, no where near as good as seeing these in person but its a start.
It doesn't look bad at all indeed but I think what it could use is something more to carry on the theme. Honda probably knows this hence why the 500 has a bit more going on throughout the various color schemes. It's just the price some of us have to pay for buying the 300
Red is likely what i'll go with, being a color that better represents Honda (to me) and flowing with the overall darker tones + it probably scares way Yamaha riders
I really do like the red as well, it's a very "nice" red. Can't find the words to describe it at the moment lol. But I would want a couple more subtle hints of red somewhere on the bike. Can't figure out where though.
