This is the 2016 model for $600 in orange or blue?

There seems to be quite a difference in the components between the two.

I think marking a 2016 bike as a 2017 one is deceptive and would usually entitle the buyer to a refund as the goods do not match the description of the product (check your local laws). It can also lead to the customer over paying. If it was marked as a 2016 bike then the customer may try to haggle for a lower price (last years model and all).
Correct, they had $600 orange bikes listed as 2017s, which you can see should only be available in blue and for $550 for 2017 according to that site.

Same deal with black base models, 2016s are $520 and 2017s are $500, but they had $520 black ones listed as '17s.
