First impression

The Rebel is a great all around fun/commuter motorcycle. The Rebel is just a fun machine. It won’t go 0 to 60 in but 3 seconds but it handles 70 mph with no problems and every time you ride, it will put a smile on your face.

If you want an overall great bike, this one is for you. It’s light and responsive. It’s light enough to move around the garage easily. The mileage is awesome. This bike is fun even for an experienced rider.

It is an amazingly comfortable bike. The ride is smooth, and the bike has enough power for freeway and city rides both. Riding this bike is a pleasure, and I would recommend one to beginners and veterans alike.

It handles well, gets great gas mileage (about 80-90 mpg) and is quiet. For the beginning rider, there is no substitute. It’s light weight (306.4 lbs) and nimbleness makes for a pleasurable ride.

The suspension gets a little tight after 50 miles or so. It doesn’t really look that good with bags, as it is a bit small. The 234CC engine is as reliable as can be and nearly "bullet proof". I don’t think there is a better "first bike" out there anywhere.
