I don't believe we did but it's a well known fact Honda made the Red Ones faster Laugh

The yellow ones may have been slightly slower but they always handled better !

unless you give the new owner the power to massively adjust the Ohins rear shock in which case handling invaribly gets f**ked up with each twiddle Laugh

I think I'll challenge your theory but not because of Honda intenral colour politics messing with the engineering department but physics Grin

Red absorbs more light so not only will the bike run a bit hotter reducing power but it'll be pushed backwards** by the extra photons it absorbs from the sun compared to the superior yellow bike

*note: the converse may be true if riding away from the sun


but the Yellow ones attract all the bugs who stick to it and therefore decrease the power to weight ration and the aerodynamics Laugh
