Default Repsol cbr 600rr

Looking to purchase a new second hand bike and Iím just wondering if Honda released the cbr 600rr in the repsol colour scheme? Or have they just been put on after purchase?

Thanks

Donít think they did a factory repsol on the 600rr until the last model. The rest are spray jobs/kits of various types.

Think they started whoring them out left right and centre along with HRC colours after
Almost certain the first Repsol 600RR was 2013 model

And the only way to check your potential new bike was a repsol from day one would be? Frame number? Or are they any little giveaways?

Call Honda with a frame number and theyíll tell you straight away. Be very careful handing over the hard earned money a lot of them have been down the road and fitted with them Chinese body kits

Im not sure if there was a cbr 600rr in repsol color.
Honda made only made 1550 of CBR1000rr Fireblade (2004-5) in repsol color. So last four digits in VIN should be bellow that number.

Anyway repsol was just fancy color scheme....nothing else.
