It came in one of two color schemes: Candy Wineberry Red with Bramble Red Metallic or Nimbus Gray Metallic with Achilles Black Metallic. The stripes on the red bike were red; but on the gray bike they were black. The “HONDA” and “SILVERWING” emblems were gold. The seat and trunk system had a modular design like the 1981 GL500.
