Resale red as they say. My favourite color for that body style was white.

Did not see any white plastics for this model from the state side, guess this is a Canada version only ?. even if they did sell white plastics here for this model, i'd pass on them, shows too much dirt..lol. as you know, i'm not a mud person at all, at least not driving into it on purpose !..lol.

Shows dirt but it hides the scratches and dullness. I think it was around 2008-2009 they were offered in white.

Hey man! Now you're getting into what I know!

White was a 2008 color. 05-09 and 2011 (no 2010 model) are pretty much the same. The 05-06 had two tail lights and the 07-up had a single in the cargo box lid.

05-08 had a weak first gear. 09-11 they improved the design and if you're splitting cases it's easy to replace while you're in there. New gearset is about $50.

I got a parts bike a couple of years ago that was yellow. Couldn't give those plastics away (they weren't in great shape, but still).

Red, yellow, green, black, white, and camo are all available for that bike. Dark Blue too (only on the 05-06 2wd machines though, so no blue pod light cover is available as the 2wd didn't come with the top light).

You got a great deal on that if it's complete. Disc brakes, selectable 4wd, and the last of the air cooled Honda designs.

They offered the Rubicon in that blue also, so the pod cover should be available that way.

I take it you either strapped that quad to the roof of a VW Jetta or gas is much cheaper where you are at lol.
