2017 Honda Rebel Cruisers

Nov 22, 2016

Category: Rides

Several decades ago the Honda Rebel was one of the more accessable and road-friendly cruiser bikes for entry-level riders. Now, Honda decided to give the little bikes another shot at the motorcycle market with their release of two 2017 models hosting either a 500cc parallel twin engine or a 300cc single.

The goal here is not to tear through the streets with angst or put your life on the line with every downshift. Instead, Honda’s looking to offer an affordable bike that’s suited for efficient commuting through the town or countryside. It sits atop thick 16-inch tires with a lowered seat and a redesigned steel diamond frame. The Rebel also features a bobber-looking fuel tank, a suspension hosting non-adjustable forks, a set of rear shocks with 2-step preload settings, a small screen functioning as the speedometer, and a rear rack. Both the 500 and the 300 will make themselves available next year here in the US for $5,999 and $4,399 respectively. [Purchase]
