Thinking of buying a 600TA and have seen this one https://www.gumtree.com/p/cars-vans-motorbikes/honda-transalp-600-rally-touring/1294269216

The owner has sent me a photo of the frame number (looks exactly how it should) to check with hpi. However the bike is registered as blue, when I would say black/grey...
Seems odd to me, I did check the mot history and it did mention loose body panels, I wonder if the whole lot was changed due to breakages?
Anybody got thoughts on this?
Thanks
Rich

It may just be Honda's naming of the silver/blue lower half, there will, or should be a colour code sticker under the seat, perhaps you could do a search on it?

It looks ok and the colour scheme looks right for the age/model

I had a colour change according to HPI on my RD04, initally listed as blue then multi-colour it is red white blue, checked with Honda UK they came back a week later and confirmed it was originally RWB.
If the colour code sticker is still on the bike that woll tell you the original colour

All the numbers match the v5c and hpi report just the colour doesn't match...
It will look slightly purple through rose-tinted spectacles....:cool:

Don't buy it sight unseen...'minor corrosion' on the rims could add £500+ to a rebuild.


Speaking of colour changes.....Everything else is cheap as chips...

Looks good for the money. the colour could be listed as blue as the dvla seem colour blind!. I have had a grey bike listed as blue!. go take a look., they are fantastic bikes. and you wont get better for the money. ;)

I've just looked at the pics,
the bike is clearly two tone blue,
have you ever been tested for colourblindness,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,?
