New colours for Honda’s most popular European commuter models for 23YM

  • Three new colours for the range-topping SH350i

  • Five new colours for the SH125i and SH150i

  • Both the PCX125 and the Vision 110 gain two all-new colours

  • The SH125i and PCX125 are Europe’s top selling commuters this year

  • Black design touches for CB125R

  • In 2022, over 54,000 customers have chosen the SH family, CB125R, PCX125 and Vision 110

Five of Honda’s wide range of fuel efficient and technologically advanced commuters receive new looks for 23YM, guaranteeing a new splash of colour in the towns and cities of Europe next year.


The SH ‘brand within a brand’ represents commuting royalty. Manufactured at Honda’s factory in Atessa, Italy, the SH125i, SH150i and range-topping SH350i provide riders stylish, fun and fuss-free transport as they continue to evolve to customers’ needs and desires.


For 23YM the SH350i will be available in three all new colours; Crescent Blue Metallic, Matt Lucent Silver Metallic, Matt Coal Black Metallic, which take their place alongside Matt Ruthenium Silver Metallic, Pearl Cool White and Black in the line-up.


The SH125i and SH150i also benefit from new colours, with Pearl Falcon Gray, Matt Pearl Cool White and Matt Pacific Blue joining the classic Nightstar Black. The two new sportier colour options, Coal Black and Hyper Red, both feature black wheels, different SH badge on the front fairing and large SH logo on the floor step side panel.


In 2021 the SH125i was Europe’s most popular commuter model with over 20,000 customers choosing Honda’s classic big-wheeled, flat-floor scooter. This year, the SH125i sits in second place in the European sales chart behind the PCX125, whose blend of agility, all day comfort, practical storage and enjoyable enhanced Smart Power Plus engine has made it a perennial favourite. Taking its place alongside the PCX125 in Honda’s line-up is the Vision 110, which continues to represent outstanding value for the European commuter with high build quality, LCD instruments and convenient Smart Key operation in a lightweight, agile package.


For 23YM, both the PCX125 and Vision 110 gain two contemporary new colours as Pearl Jupiter Gray and Matt Suit Blue Metallic join Pearl Jasmine White and Matt Galaxy Black Metallic in their respective line-ups.

After receiving a new 4 valve engine and major front suspension upgrade in 21YM, the gateway to Neo Sports Café ownership, the CB125R, gains a new darker look for 23YM. All four colours, Matt Gunpowder Black, Matt Crypton Silver Metallic, Candy Chromosphere Red and Matt Jeans Blue Metallic are now enhanced with black belly pan and fairing shrouds.


Overall, in 2022, over 54,000 customers have chosen the SH family, CB125R, PCX125 or Vision 110 as their choice of commuter.

Honda’s CB650R and CBR650R receive new visual updates for 23YM

  • Two new colours for the 23YM CB650R including a dramatic all-black version

  • CBR650R receives graphical updates increasing road presence and desirability

Since their introduction in 2019, Honda’s CB650R Neo Sports Café middleweight and its sibling, the CBR650R have established a popular position within the European motorcycle landscape thanks to their seamless combination of exhilarating four-cylinder engine performance, light, refined handling, rich specification list (including 41mm Showa Separate Function Big Piston USD forks, HSTC, assist/slipper clutch and LCD display) and distinctive, head-turning looks.


The CB650R was Honda’s best-selling motorcycle in 2021 and is second only to the Africa Twin in the 2022 motorcycle sales chart. For 23YM the Neo Sports Café middleweight, as well as still being available in Candy Chromosphere Red and Matt Jeans Blue Metallic, will come in two all new colours – Matt Dim Gray Metallic and Matt Gunpowder Black Metallic. The latter dials up the ‘stealth’ look to the maximum, with all-black detailing throughout including cam cover, engine cases, fork stanchions, side shrouds, levers and footpegs.


The CBR650R also benefits from a refresh for 23YM, further accentuating the desirability of the best-selling sports bike in Europe in 2021. Still available in both Grand Prix Red and Matt Gunpowder Black Metallic, for 23YM both colours feature new black engine cases and cam covers, as well as striking updated graphics.


The Matt Gunpowder Black Metallic colour scheme features new blue highlights on the tank, tail, and fairing and a new red shock spring. The Grand Prix Red comes with a new black front mudguard and belly pan which features a bold red Honda logo that chimes with the new red fork spring.



New Model: Honda’s brand-new Hornet reveals its sting. Carrying zero excess mass, class-leading power-to-weight ratio is delivered by a 67.5kW and 75Nm engine driving a 190kg package. The all-new, eight-valve parallel twin-cylinder unit delivers both top end buzz and heaps of mid-range usability, combining with a new ultra-lightweight frame for supremely agile side-to-side performance and instant, riotous acceleration. Throttle By Wire (TBW) serves up 3 riding modes and 3-level Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) with integrated Wheelie Control, plus 3 levels of Engine Braking and Power delivery. The new frame wears full Showa suspension: 41mm Separate Fork Function Big Piston (SFF-BPTM) USD forks and rear shock working through Pro-Link. Dual, radial-mount four-piston calipers bite hard. The premium specification includes 5-inch colour TFT instrument display, with Honda Smartphone Voice Control (HSVC), full LED lighting, auto-indicator cancel and Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) technology. An A2 licence option will also be available.

  • The CB1000R Black Edition is now also available in Mat Jeans Blue Metallic

  • New Bordeaux Red Metallic for CB1000R itself

  • The CMX500 Rebel line-up features a new Titanium Metallic ‘S’ Edition and three new colours

  • New colours for the Monkey pay homage to the classic original of the 1960s


Three of Honda’s most visually distinctive models receive updates for their 2023 year model iterations. A new CB1000R Black Edition joins the Neo Sports Café family line up; the CMX500 Rebel, Europe’s most popular model in the custom category for the last two years, receives a complete new range of contemporary colours and the ‘S’ Edition is available in a new dynamic colour. The delightful Monkey receives colour updates that pay homage to the classic designs of the 1960s.


A new Mat Jeans Blue Metallic CB1000R ‘Black Edition’ joins the existing Black Edition version at the head of Honda’s Neo Sports Café family. Both colours feature a new silver accent on the tank to match the carefully selected machined aluminium details on the wheel spokes, swingarm plates, engine covers and handlebar clamps. The sleek and aggressive final look is completed with the colour matched pillion seat cover. The standard CB1000R also features a new look for 2023, available in a classy new Bordeaux Red Metallic paint scheme.


The CMX500 Rebel, Honda’s A2 licence-friendly 500cc parallel twin-cylinder compact cruiser, has been Europe’s best-selling model in the custom category for two years. Accessible, easy to ride and easy to live with, the Rebel features an attractive standard specification that includes assist/slipper clutch, LED lighting and gear position indicator.


For 2023 the CMX500 Rebel receives three brand new contemporary paint options: Mat Gunpowder Black Metallic, Pearl Smoky Gray and Candy Diesel Red.  The CMX500 Rebel ‘S’ version, which features a range of practical and attractive factory-fitted accessories including a headlight cowl, all-black fork covers and gaiters plus diamond-stitch style seat, is now available in dynamic new Titanium Metallic.


The Honda Monkey has been continuing to cheer up roads across Europe since its reintroduction last year. For 2023 the Monkey will be available in new Pearl Shining Black and updated Banana Yellow and Pearl Nebula Red. All three feature colour-matched frame, forks, swingarm and rear suspension, plus tartan seat cover and stylish tank infills that reference the classic Monkey style from the late 1960s.
