Honda Rebel Design
The Honda Rebel takes its design cues from the iconic 1100cc Rebel, although it is unavailable in the Philippine market. Its low-slung profile and all-black colour scheme give it a dangerous yet undeniably attractive look.
This model exudes a modern and sophisticated aesthetic, with its simplistic round LED headlamp adding an elegant touch. The amber-hued, round LED turn indicators on the sides of the front fascia further contribute to its eye-catching look.
The split seat theme of the Honda Rebel is an eye-catching feature, with the pillion seat being mounted on its rounded rear fender. Its design has been minimalistic and contemporary, boasting a simple tail lamp assembly as part of the motorcycle’s aesthetic and doubling up as a mudguard.
Although its small fonts can be difficult to decipher when you’re on the go, the meter panel features only your essential data – such as speedometer, trip meter, odometer, fuel gauge, and clock.
Honda Rebel Ride & Handling
Staying true to the cruiser tradition, the Honda Rebel does not contain complex mechanical hardware. This motorcycle is equipped with a 41mm conventional hydraulic telescopic fork up front and a Showa Pro-Link Mono-Shock in the rear, providing an unparalleled ride.
The Honda Rebel has a single disc brake system on 16-inch tubeless tires, 110mm section at the front and 150mm section at the rear. This provides superior control and stability for riders.
