    Am I right in thinking a repsol bike should have the gold/bronze calipers?
    I looked at a mint low mile 2015 model but couldn’t help wondering why they’ve been changed? If they have?
    Is there anything else to look for on a repsol?
    Cheers

    ABS Bikes have the Bronze calipers.

    Non ABS have black calipers.

    Cheers,

    Bit off topic, but speaking of calipers, I snapped this from the RC213V at the NEC:

    Seems mostly 15 plate has black or bronze (abs) or brembo for sp
    13 standard bike downwards had gold calipers as most of us know about from older model, so prob where confusion came from. Seems they changed it now to 1 colour for non abs. Makes sense manufacturing wise, but the gold with gold forks on the repsol look nicer.

    Cheers mate,
    I have the new hel calipers to go on but just thought there might of been something wrong to put the black on. The gold do look nicer I agree
