Turn a 2019 Adventure Sports into 2018?

I don't know why Honda decided to make the 2019 color so ugly.

I wonder if, with the right parts, you can turn a grayscale 2019 model into a 2018 Red/White/Blue

- Front cowls
- Front fender
- Rear cowls
- Gas tank!! (This is the most expensive item, at around $1000)

I think

I don't understand this.

The 2019 is available in two colour schemes. the first is identical to the 2018. the other silver bike is new this year. (and looks great in the real world.)

The only difference between the red/white/blue 2018 and 2019 is the former has a 30th anniversary sticker. and thats it.

If you dont like the silver bike.. dont buy it.

Yup, I agree the 2018 colours are superb and the 2019 a letdown (I have a 2018!). If it matters to you surely just buy a 2018.

In the US Honda only offered the AS in silver/grey in 2019. Tho I do agree it does look better IRL LOL first picture I seen of the ‘19 I thought it just was a black and white photo

I got lucky and got the last one (2018) in Honda inventory in the US. Tho I’m sure there are still a few at the dealers on the showroom floor. Ended getting it for $13980.00 out the door a white/blue/red 2018 AS DCT..

Many of you wil NOT like this.

Sorry, but I view the red white and blue as butt ugly.
Do the Japanese do that with their cars? No. So why the bikes?
Seriously, it's SO 1970's, and tasteless.
Think what you will about my post, but I stand by my opinion and my taste.

You obviously don’t appreciate the history Honda has with those colours, nor the decade they represent.
As for comparing them to Honda cars....could you be more boring ?

The fact that it's so 1970's is EXACTLY why I want it 😂

I have yet to see the 2019 in person, but I doubt that I would like it as much as the 2018

If last year when I bought mine, both colour schemes existed, I would probably have had a hard time choosing....

Generally, I tend to prefer more subtle colours, but those ATAS white and blue shades are so bright you can's easily pass them....
