:shrug:A color question for the brain trust.
Is the 2008 Dark Red Metallic Wing color the same as the 2009 and previous years Candy Black Cherry????
Dealer says yes, just a different name.
What do you experts think? I'm trying to buy a new Wing and have
to decide soon.
Thanks to all. Steve

If Honda changed the name the color is different. It may be close but will be different. They don't change names on the same color.

A quick look on the Color Rite site tells me that the neither of the 08 Reds are the same as the 09 Red. They might be close but they are not the same paint code so they wouldn't be the same color.

I'd say the dealer is wrong.

Just give Honda a call and you will have the answer. I did the same thing on my 08.

The new dark red is a good bit darker than the Candy black Cherry.....

I have parked my CBC next to a couple of the new reds.......so I'm not just guessing.


It is still a very nice color but I'll keep my CDC....

you wouldn't consider black? I heard it was the fastest color. Could be wrong.

Check the color codes, that will tell you the truth. I suspect they are NOT the same.
The above is all you need to do...look inside the gas tank lid...

I wish I had bought that orange one I think it was a 2007, I did not realize I had made a mistake until I saw it in PERSON!! What a difference... Go look at all the colors you can, it WILL make a HUGE difference!!

HEY "SLOWPOKE",

As you can see my bike is RED and I'm no "SISSY".......thought I'd reply..

That's a very nice fender guard you have on your bike. Last time I was in Vancouver I rode a bike around Stanley Park near Burrard Inlet and I heard there was a place on the island that specialized in coloring fender guards. Nice part of the world there...
