Discs Look Rusty

Hi,

I've had my 2017 Justa for about two months (3000 kms). After my weekly wash today, I noticed the discs look rusty. Is this normal? Should I be worried?
TIA.

Nope, its normal after a car wash. All cars do this.
Drive around the block, and they will clean up!!

Totally normal. A little paint where the pads don't grab adds a bit of flash.

all you are seeing is 'brake dust' that has reacted to the water of the wash ... as soon as the brake pads hit it, GONE

Typical to most any disk brake system ...
