yes they are the same color, a quick google confirms. I believe its called ion blue in australia.

Also i came across this picture of a white CTX, dont know what market is supposed to get that...

That's actually not too bad looking. Not a color I'd want for myself, which doesn't matter because I couldn't get it anyway even if I did. That would look particularly nice with the blacked-out bits.

I can see a police model for here in black and white... with a special box on the pillion and a few extra lights :)

If I'm not mistaken,Honda already makes a Police Edition in a black and white configuration,but I'm not sure just which model they're usin.I think, the ST1300,but again I'm not sure.And it's WAAAAAAAAAY better then the HD versions.But,and unfortunately,buyin these Police units depends on who knows who,if ya follow me.New Hampshire State ran Kawasakis for years,then suddenly,[new governor] they're now runnin Harleys.And more often then not,I see these Police Harleys in the back of a pick up truck cause they're broken.I know,I know!A HD that breaks down?? Unheard of!! lol lol lol Dave!!!

Hey! My first bike was a Harley... so I know :D
There are Police ST1300 in some communities still. It is the most current ST1300 produce at this time. Also, there is a post on the ST-Owners site about ST1300 in the news in Tucson that is about the police bikes cracking down on speeding and other traffic offences there. Video shows the Black and White ST units on I-10.

If ya look at the left muffler on the Police unit in the above picture,where the pipe and muffler come together,you'll note it's gold in color.That's a sign of a lean condition.So I suspect he's been pushing that thing pretty hard through the gears.Dave!!!

But it's mounted the wrong way. Set up like that they have to stop and get off before they can snag it and start firing at the bad guys. How inefficient is that.
I was thinking the same thing. Noticed that it would be easier for some passer by to try and snag it and fire it off in the attempt shooting the officer in the leg :eek:

I was thinking the same thing. I have seen an ST1300 police bike at my local dealer, and it is awesome! There are a number of departments in the US that have switched to the Honda police bikes due to their better reliability and reliability. This white model seems perfect for that, and for keeping that market segment for Honda. If it's like the ST model, though, only police departments will be able to purchase them.
