2022 Honda® Rebel 500 ABS

Meet the modern classic.

Features may include:

  • Tuned for cruising

The engine’s high-tech features and light and compact design contribute to the Rebel’s impressive power-to-weight ratio. Special tuning accentuates low-RPM power and torque, making the Rebel perfect for bopping around the city.

  • 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.

  • Crisp Response

Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) continuously monitors several variables to help ensure the correct fuel mixture for the current riding and atmospheric conditions. The system delivers optimal performance and remarkably crisp throttle response over a wide range of operating conditions. The PGM-FI system also incorporates an Idle Air Control Valve (IACV) to smooth responses to small changes in throttle position.

  • Slipper clutch

Not only does the Honda Assist Slipper Clutch help to prevent rear-wheel lock up on downshifts, it also reduces clutch lever operation effort by 30%, making the six-speed gearbox even smoother.

  • High-tech design

A light and compact roller-rocker-arm assembly and shim-type valve adjustment allows a lower valve-spring load for reduced friction and a compact cylinder head. And to ensure precise cylinder shape, the engine uses centrifugal-cast thin-wall sleeves.

  • 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.

  • Improved front and rear suspension

The 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 nitrogen charged, with spring rates and damper rubbers for more consistent damping.

  • Bold, oversize tires

Oversize tires (130/90-16 front; 150/80-16 rear) help to contrast the narrow frame and add to the Rebel’s strong, confident stance.

  • Standard ABS

Front and rear disc brakes provide confident stopping power. Standard ABS provides exceptional braking performance and added peace of mind.

  • 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 taillight and licence plate light match the Rebel’s low-down stance and the new mini circular LED indicators measure only 55 mm in diameter, offering great visibility in a compact package.

  • Ample range

Chopper-style fuel tank looks compact, but its 11.2-litre capacity combines with the engine’s excellent fuel efficiency to help let you ride far and wide between fill-ups.

  • Side-mounted key

The side-mounted key location adds to the Rebel’s retro character.
