Meet the modern classic

Features may include:

Engine & Drivetrain
  • Cruising power

Honda engineers tuned the Rebel's engine and exhaust system to perfectly suit the cruiser riding style, resulting in strong low-end torque, a wonderfully smooth powerband, and an ear-pleasing sound.

  • Strong low-end torque

The Rebel’s 471 cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin-cylinder engine is drawn from the sporty CBR500R. For cruising duties, revised PGM-FI fuel injection mapping and different valve and ignition timings mean its character is shifted away from the high rpm-focused performance of the CBR to torque-heavy bottom-end output, with smooth and linear delivery throughout the rev range.

  • Smooth and compact

Engine vibration is kept to a minimum by using crank pins phased at 180 degrees and a balancer shaft behind the cylinders, which also contributes to the engine’s compact size.

Chassis & Suspension
  • Distinctive chassis design

Combining elements of bobber and chopper styling in its iconic fuel tank design, narrow frame, raked-looking front end and black-out components, the Rebel has a raw, no-nonsense appearance that’s bound to get noticed.

  • Comfortable riding position

The Rebel’s seat has been redesigned for improved comfort, while its low 690 mm (27.2 in.) height allows most riders to easily put both feet flat on the ground at stops for added confidence. The riding position is relaxed and neutral, with gently outstretched arms matched to mid-mounted footpegs. Want to bring a friend along?

  • Improved front and rear suspension

For 2020, revised fork spring rates and oil quantities result in more compliant damping for a smoother ride. At the back, the twin shock absorbers with five-step preload adjustment are now nitrogen-charged, with revised spring rates and reshaped damper rubbers for more consistent damping.

  • All-LED lighting

All lights are now LED, and the evocative round headlight features a compact 175 mm diameter lens and die-cast aluminium mount. The new ultra-thin oval

  • New instruments

New for 2020, a gear position indicator and a fuel consumption display join the compact speedo with negative LCD display, keeping you fully informed of the bike’s operation.

  • Customize your ride

Want to make your Rebel uniquely your own? Now there are more ways than ever to customize your ride. For 2020 the accessories lineup has been boosted, with a new rear rack, backrest, tank pads and instrument visor. A nylon saddlebag option is also now available alongside the existing leather bags.
