It Has A Sportier Look And A New Attitude

Honda brought one of its most recognized model families into the 21st century with a complete overhaul of the much celebrated Rebel range in 2017. Available as the Rebel 300 and 500, this reworked line features water-cooled mills and fuel-injection induction control to meet modern and near-future emissions standards. A sportier look greets the eye this time around, though the Rebel still targets the same small-[cruiser-mot392], entry-level market.

Here’s Why Honda’s New Rebel-based Scrambler Could Be A Game-changer

With its new bikes, Honda will resurrect its iconic ’CL’ moniker

Earlier in the year, we reported rumors suggesting Honda’s foray into the baby scrambler lineup. Since then, these rumors have cemented thanks to patent filings from the Japanese giant with everything pointing towards two promising scrambler models, CL250 and CL500, based on the lauded Rebel 250 and Rebel 500, respectively. How will they be promising? Well, here’s how.

Check Out The Chinese Twin Of The Honda Rebel 500

Check Out The Chinese Twin Of The Honda Rebel 500

Surprisingly, the Rebel’s Chinese twin trumps it in a few aspects

Instead of making a name for itself the right way, Chinese bikemaker Xiang Shuai is going in the opposite direction. First, the bikemaker whipped up a clone of the Harley-Davidson Iron 883, and now it has backed it up by copying the Honda Rebel 500. Unlike the Iron 883 clone, though, this one draws a lot more than just the design from the Rebel.

It has the body of a Rebel and the heart of an Africa Twin with nice electronics suite

Honda swings for the back fence with its new-for-2021 Rebel 1100 taking its place at the head of the Rebel family. A prime candidate for both the entry-level riders and ones looking for their first upgrade, the engine on this largest Rebel comes out of the globetrotting Africa Twin. Ride-control and safety electronics come off the top shelf and it comes in a choice between a standard transmission and Honda’s DCT gearbox that delivers automatic-transmission functionality. This new ride rolls for less than $10k to cement its status as a contender in the U.S. cruiser market.

Built by FCR Original, this Rebel 1100 motorcycle will be part of Honda’s stall at the 2022 Wheels & Waves festival

Honda took the wraps off the Rebel 1100 in November 2020 intending to take on American cruiser giants like Harley-Davidson and Indian Motorcycles. Like its American competitors, the motorcycle was quick to gather attention from several custom bikemakers.

One such bike shop was Europe-based FCR Original, which prepared two custom Rebels - CMX Bobber and CMX Sport - and here we’ll deep dive into the details of the former.

Before getting into it, though, let us tell you that Honda has compiled the ten best custom Rebel builds for the 2022 Wheels & Waves bike festival, and both FCR builds are part of it. You can check out all ten bikes on Honda’s website.

Honda Rebel 250 & Rebel 500 Re-Imagined As Scramblers

According to Japanese sources, Honda could soon add two new scrambler bikes to its lineup

With exponential growth in the popularity of scramblers, almost every major bike maker has a Scrambler of some sort in their line up. However, one manufacturer that is yet to add one though, is Honda.

According to the latest rumors in Japan, this could change soon as the company is looking to introduce not one but two new scrambler offerings based on the popular Rebel 500 and Rebel 250 platforms.

Accordingly, Japanese artist Shinji Miyakubo has used his rendering skills to give us an idea about what these upcoming Scramblers could look like.

2016 Honda Rebel

2016 Honda Rebel

Honda got it right when it released the original CMX250 back in 1985, evidenced by the fact that the overall design has changed so little in the past three decades. I look at the 2016 Rebel — a straight-up carry-over model from 2015 — and it takes me right on back to my youth and an ’87 Rebel that I bought for a girlfriend.

The first thing she did was to drive that Rebel into my Sporty, breaking a few pieces off, so I was obliged to ride the undamaged Rebel for a while. I don’t blame the bike (much); it was much lighter and less powerful than my Harley. Still, it was still fun to ride, and the maintenance such as valve and point adjustments were easy to perform. Ever since then I have regarded the Rebel as good fun and reliable around-town transportation, so let’s take a look and see if it upholds the family name.

Honda is considered one of the best motorcycle manufactures and there is no wonder why, as its products are reliable, modern and very capable. The Rebel 250 CMX250C was designed for those who put comfort on the first place and is powered by a pretty cool air cooled 234cc parallel twin-cylinder engine.

2012 Honda Rebel

2012 Honda Rebel

Classic cruising has never been a problem for the Honda Rebel. When you boast of a retro design that’s complimented by a fuel efficient commuter engine, then you can ride around town with the kind of confidence befitting the name of your bike.

The Rebel is not all about power, although it offers plenty of that in its own regard. The bike also features a design that a lot of riders can be proud of. The low-lying stance greatly accentuates the classic styling cues, including the prevalent use of chrome on the make-up of the bike. The low seat height of the Rebel is both comfortable and confidence inspiring, exuding a no-frills, all-business look that’s just right for the taste of a wide range of consumers.

Then there’s the engine. For the 2012 Rebel, Honda fitted the bike with a proven 234cc twin-cylinder SOHC four-stroke engine that’s smooth, quiet, and relatively easy to maintain. The engine is also mated to a five-speed transmission while an electric starter allows you be on your way at just a push of a button. Plus, you get the kind of reliability and low maintenance Honda is known for – all at a shockingly low price.

There is also a semi-double-cradle frame with a hydraulic front fork with dual Syntallic bushings and dual rear shocks that feature five-position spring preload adjustment, bringing together a bike that has taken the long and rich history of the Rebel name to a whole new level.

You don’t expect anything less from Honda.

2011 Honda Rebel

2011 Honda Rebel

There’s a reason why novice street riders have had nothing but high praise for the Honda Rebel: it’s got the type of good looks that lasts the test of time and it’s light and comfortable enough to make for easy maneuverability. But the best part about the Rebel is that it’s one of the most durable street bikes on the market today.

The all-new Honda Rebel is no different. Dressed in delicious Matte Silver and Candy Red colors, the Honda Rebel is the kind of street bike that you’d want to be seen riding around town in. On top of that, the bike comes with a 27" seat height to keep both feet flat on the ground for better control at stops to the classic cruiser style. But the best thing about the Honda Rebel is that it has the performance to match whatever stunning good looks it exudes.

The Rebel is powered by a 234cc engine that starts with an electric push-button starter, mated to a five-speed transmission with a ridiculous 80 plus miles per gallon fuel capacity.

On the front, the Honda Rebel comes with a 33-mm fork suspension on the front and dual shocks with five-position spring pre-load adjustability on the rear. The brakes on the front features a single disc with twin-piston calipers.

Anytime you need an entry-level street rider on your garage, the only thing you need to do is get acquainted with the Rebel and you won’t have to look elsewhere for other options.

Honda gets the bad boy out of each one of us with the 2009 Rebel. Considering the fact that people are most likely to buy it in order to save up gas money, that’s quite an accomplishment and yet only a part of the small cruiser’s big character. With a reliable and docile four-stroke engine, comfortable accommodations and great handling, I bet my money on the fact that after being introduced to cruising by this entry-level bike, all riders will see the Honda Shadow as their next goal.

What a radical transformation! The way in which the crew at Heiwa modified this series motorcycle – one related to which you don’t hear many “wows” – is simply amazing and it shows that sometimes the real challenges consist in what is unappreciated and left behind.

Details such as the raw heat-forged shifter, the switches on both sides of the oil tank as well as the satin-finished megaphones and fittings make all the difference, but adding a N.O.S system to a 250cc engine is an idea I couldn’t have got not in a thousand years.
