Been riding a PCX150 for months and am looking forward to getting a grown up bike with the 500 ABS. I wish it came in more than black on black though so I don't have to immediately wrap it. :surprise:

You can get the Rebel in 3 different color combos. The 500 ABS also comes in Millennium Red, and Matte Armored Silver.

Ohh I didn't know that, thanks. That sucks..

Well OP, if you're going to wrap it immediately, what color would you be going?

Not sure yet. Not a fan of military colors usually, but this bike is begging for some black and satin green. I did my PCX in a pearl satin white which I really like, but wouldn't work on the rebel.

A satin green like this I think would give the Rebel a real custom retro type of look to it. That would be dope.

I think that would do the opposite, making it seem more new age than anything else.
What would do a better job is a green along the lines of this:



but much like that example, the Rebel would need a multi-color scheme, not just all green.

Both of those look even better than what I was thinking. I think that speaks to the bikes potential for customizing, which Honda is touting as one of its features.

They may have made a little piece of crack here.

It can go either way, actually it can go any way, just depends on what someone wants out of the bike and what actually works on the bike. That example above was just me.

I was initially thinking something hot-rodder chopper style, but I keep going back and forth. The bike is just such a perfect canvas for going different routes it's tough to pick one!

its endless and with how much it costs to get one of these it opens the bike up to a lot of people so with that we're going to see a lot of color schemes, hopefully we see more that pay homage to previous hondas

I really like the PCX. I bought it as a commuter after having just relocated, and decided to get back on a 2 wheeler. I underestimated my 12 mile, 31 traffic signal commute. It is mostly 45-55 mph, with several long steep hills. I get uneasy climbing a 1 mile long hill at 55 (if I am able to start early enough), then have nothing left. It will hit 70 on the other side though,,:grin2:
