That might depend on your country but I believe the white tank is a 300 only colour, the yellow is a 500 only colour and all the others are either model.

As to ABS or not ABS, only ABS models are available in the UK and that definitely includes the black, the silver (the one I have) and the red. The other colours could be here too but I havent seen them.

Same for Australia. All Rebels have ABS and come in red, black and grey. There are no 300 models. Also the bike here always comes with a passenger saddle and rear foot pegs.

my ABS is silver, no passenger equipment. I was told it only comes in silver but I haven't proven/disproven that. I really wanted black at first but the silver grew on me and now I don't regret it. It's a nice silver, much deeper color than the cheap silver you often find on cheap cars. I think they call it "matte metallic silver" or something.

HA!
I went to a Kawasaki dealer to look at the Z300. He had a black one and when I asked for green he said that's overseas and there are only black ones in Australia. Guess what? I checked on the internet when I came home and there are plenty of used and new ones around here from other sellers not only do they come in green but also in red.

guess dealer was just hoping you'd buy the one he had with no other colors in stock. most people research stuff online before ever setting foot in the showroom so how'd he expect that conversation to go LOL

I did look at the bike on the net before I went there. I am not going to argue with him if he tells me lies. I would just buy elsewhere (either used or from interstate) because I wouldn't want to do business with someone that lies to me. Also the prices he quoted were way more expensive than bikes from interstate even including the shipping interstate bikes would have been cheaper.

yeah mine is the 18 and my sales guy also said he had been asked that question many times before about people wanting different colored 18's but it's only silver on the current year

I agree, the silver is nice! Think that is what I'd get in a 500a if I am going to do this but no one has any really great specials right now on pricing. Dealers are saying they are selling nicely right now. Funny cause I saw 2017's in his showroom! Go figure!

2017 Rebel 500 ABS came in gloss black stock as the only color option
2018 Rebel 500 ABS comes in matte silver stock as the only color option
Figures that is how it would go. Silver is nice but I am not going to pay top dollar for a 2018!!!!! Grrrrr! :laugh:

I wanted black but I settled with the silver. It's starting to grow on me. I could've possibly gotten a 2017 ABS in black but it didn't even cross my mind honestly. Water under the bridge.

Is there any real difference between the 2017 and 2018 models?
