The Honda Rebel may not be as good looking as its more upscale siblings, but certainly has what it needs to make you look cool while riding it.
As far as looks are concerned, the Rebel features a timeless design with a fat rear tyre, a big headlight and an old school fuel tank. On the comfort side of things, the Honda Rebel rewards you with a spacious saddle and a modern handlebar which offer a pretty relaxed riding position.
The bike is built around a 234 cc four stroke twin engine which offers a decent amount of power and is paired with a smooth five speed transmission.
One of the biggest advantages offered by the Rebel is its fuel consumption which is rated at only 86 mpg.
The bike rides on a 33mm front fork (4.6 inches of wheel travel) and rear dual shocks with five-position spring-preload adjustability (2.9 inches of wheel travel).
