Dawg needs as many shots as he can get in different light conditions of the New '07 RED, Black, and Blue bikes. Some have posted pics but I have been unable to capture the true essence of the colors.

The Honda web site does not give a true pic of what the colors look like.

I have a group of guys and gals getting ready to buy new Wings now, and I want to be able to show them some great pics. I promised them that you guys on the board would be able to help us out. None of the dealers within 100 miles of here even have an '07

Actually great shots of any of the '07 colors will work.

We are looking at 4 or 5 Bikes.

Guess who is getting the Blue Nav, Prem sound, Comfy package...LOL

Well, I had the same problem finding accurate colors.
Here's the most accurate one I could come up with. It's the blue one, in a coal mine, at midnight, with no moon.
Yeah, that's a black cat sitting on the seat.
I know, I shouldn't have gone to all the trouble, but, hey, you wanted different lighting conditions.:lol: :lol: :lol:
Seriously, I hope to see some good color representations posted. I have had no luck finding them on the web.

OK Dawg, it's supposed to be in the high 50's today with sunshine, I'll try and take several shots of my fast 07 Blue and get them to you...it's stock so you'll be able to see the true color in stock form....if the weather man didn't lie to me....again :wink:

The only way you can get a feeling of the true colors is to visit dealers with the color of one you have in mind and then look at it under their flourcescent lights and taking it outside..

With all the different cameras, lighting, and monitor settings available it is real hard to get the "true" color on computer..

I have seen the Dark Red and the Blue side by side on the showroom floor. In that lighting condition, the Dark Red got my attention more than the Blue. I was there mainly to see the Blue. I guess my history with Red caused me to like it a little better. Both are great loking bikes, though!

Dawg, The red carries the same color number as the 06. The silver is the same as the earlier bright silver. I have the 07 blue, 6,300 miles at this time. The spoiler box calls it Newport Blue, it is also called bright blue metallic. It is a darker richer looking color than Honda usually uses. It is dark and dreary here for the next few days. But in all honesty, it looks different in every picture I have seen. Nothing compares to viewing in person.

Try right clicking on the picture and you should get a menu that will let you save the photo to your pc in any directory and with any name you choose.
