Looking at the 2018/2019 GL1800, the colors are pretty disappointing. There were some very outstanding colors used on the GL1500 that made it stand out in a crowd. Sulfur Yellow in 1976 and then carried over to the 1st generation GL1800. Pearl Bermuda Green and Barbados Blue are attractive on the GL1500. The awesome orange, illusion blue and illusion red on the 1800. Two tone painting of the GL1200 Aspencades and GL1500.
2020 needs a stand out color. That's my opinion.

I agree, they seem to have lost their imagination when they moved production to Japan. I went to a dealer last week and had my first look at the new goldwing. They had 2 blue ones and a white one, I had a hard time just spotting the Goldwings in the show room, don't stand out at all. Besides the bland colors they look like sport tourers.

Honda of Russellville has the colors. Now that's what I'm talking about, outstanding colors for the Goldwing.

Pretty happy with mine. And judging by the comments of people who come up to me, so are a lot of others. But Honda--living on the edge as always--decided to replace the color in 2019 with.....wait for it....black. Really imaginative.

But I got mine:wink2:

Up close it looks like molten copper infused with gold dust. Spectacular!

The 2020 Goldwings should soon be arriving and my guess is the only thing different will be the colors. :crying2:
Even HD has some lousy colors for 2020.

Wish I had waited for the 2020 model. Some of the issues I have with the 2019 seem to have been addressed. Oh well !

I have to admit the color choices are good, but the F6B version is unhappy looking compared to the others.

That's why they don't announce any changes until the new model comes out, so they can sell the older ones.
