After riding a new ZX and my 2012 CBR there's no question I made the right decision.

The fact that it has a higher retail value probably means that you paid more for it initially so nobody is winning there but Honda. I bought my bike to RIDE, not to trade or re-sell, and I dont give half a shit about a few hundred dollar difference on resale. Very few people care if the title says repsol. People are going to remember an auctmart repsol just as much as they will remember your authentic one. Spend more money on a repsol from honda-you have a blade that's been repainted. get a blade and make a repsol replica-you have a blade that's been repainted. WTF.
You just proved my point. Cheap plastics make a fake repsol. Thanks

And the fact that my bike is a real repsol means just that. Its not a fake and is worth more. And when I sell or trade I will get more. Guaranteed by myself.
You're talking in circles. I guess everyone is. The one fact out of all this. Cheap knockoff plastics or even oem replacements does not a repsol make.. that makes a replica off a repsol. Maybe you're not understanding the simplicity of this. i dont give a shit if you dont give a shit

Throwback Jerseys = Throwback Motorcycles and now Repsol can be found on the side of a wheel barrel
Right you are! Couldn't have said it better.

In the end the Repsol brand is nothing but an extra sticker and sponsorship; *mind-blown*!
Good point! However, if my bike was a Repsol, I think it would still bug me.
