    Hello all, New member here just doing on to say hello.

    I'm looking at purchasing my first blade, a 2008-2010 hopefully. I have one question that sometime may be able to help with. I've seen a nice one for sale. A 2010 model but in the dark blue HRC colours, I thought this colour scheme didn't appear until 2011, so I'm thinking replacement Chinese fairings. Anyone have any thoughts or know if that colour scheme made an appearance in 2010.

    Cheers
    Jason

    Hi and welcome Jason :)

    the dark blue hrc scheme was a 2011 only, if the vin says RR-B it’s legit, if not, then it’s not.

    mine for reference:

    Howdy, wise to ask before you buy. Take your time to find the right bike. And beware some dealers are scammers.

    Thanks for all the greetings and advice. Much appreciated.

    I don't mind if they are not original fairings as long as the price reflects that and hpi is ok for accidents. Just have to be wary of people trying to pass it off as something else.

    Plenty of good ones about though, rather take my time and get a nice one.

    I waited around 2 months for mine. I wanted that specific scheme, all original, or with all original parts included with less than 15k on the clock. Got mine from Blackpool Honda with 10.5k totally bog standard at a decent price. Went up there (fair play trek from Cambridge) and done the deal. The rest is history. Take your time, make sure you buy something that feels right. Lot of experience and help on the forum, don’t be afraid to ask.
