2003 Limited edition RC51??

Hey guys, need some help,

according to wikipedia, (second last para)


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_RC51


its mentioned that there are 6 limited edition RC51's in 2003, with yellow and chrome enkei rims.

Is it true? Or did they release normal models with these specific rims straight outta the factory?

If anyone has any info, on anythin related to this, plz post!


Thanks in advance

- '00 RC51 SP1

It was the first and only time I've heard mention of it.
I do not know if it is true or an urban legend.

Its urban legend. From everything I've read Honda denies these 6 limited editions. Bad thing about wiki is anybody can add anything they want....

So true...there's no real validation of the data.

yeah I read this too and was wondering. Does anybody know if gold wheels were an option in 2003? I just bought an '03 with gold wheels, red paint scheme, added watsens signals, untertail, full jardine exhaust, gold accents all around and more. It came with the gold wheels and they look factory but Ive seen so few RC's with the gold wheels I dont know if they are factory can anyone help me out with this?

yeah, as soon as mines out for the shop for the summer I'll post some pics. I wonder if there's a way to contact Honda and find out this information...
