Level 3 Gold rims on 2016 Tan?
« on: August 25, 2017, 10:50:30 AM »
I am getting close to placing an order for a Level 3 upgrade for my 2016 with the tan color (is that USA only?).

My tastes generally do not go for bling and flash but I must say that all the photos of CB500Xs that have the gold rims look quite nice.

I do not recall seeing any photos of a tan CB500X with the gold rims.  Has anyone installed the gold on tan?  Please post photos if possible.

It appears not.

Makes my decision a bit scary.   I do not have photoshop capability or I would see what it looks like that way.

How about this question...is there any reason to believe that one or the other would hold up better in the long term with the abuse of adv riding?

I believe Jenny uses the gold rims and the way she rides the crap out of that bike I would think they hold up just fine!

A very pertinent observation SnowOwl.

It sure would make the black vs. gold rim decision easier if I could look at photos of both (on the tan).

I am always surpised at how much the gold rims stand out.  Just from a safety perspective I might get the gold because it seems to be much more visible.

I've got a tan 2016XA and will probably get gold if I go for the spoked wheels. My plan is to get the level 2 kit first and run for a while with the stock wheels, then decide if I really want to upgrade the wheels.
