    Isn't the 2015 that lame dull black with the yellow X version? That's the one I'm seeing on the dealers' websites. Sometimes i think Honda US is afraid of color. I'd love it in that red (or even blue.)

    Any more pics of that red one, perchance?

    The Honda site says it's the European version. And doesn't have a U.S. price yet either for the 2015's.

    I like the dull black, but they should have more than one color per year. That seems weird.

    I do mean the new 2015 model year, not 2016. It is 2557 over here, I am getting confused.

    Hey, those pictures were taken here in Chiang Mai!

    BTW, the white to gray fade is, I think, a decal and not the paint job. Next time I'm in the shop or nearby I'll check.

    Any of those white ones headed to the US? I may have to pick up a white '14, not a fan of the black yellow combo.
