When Honda introduced OG Rebel decades ago, the motorcycle company’s idea was to make the bad boy cruiser aesthetic, tone it down a bit and tighten it up a little. Put a mellow engine and make the seat low enough so that anyone can easily swing a leg over it without teetering. It was apparent that Honda wanted to remove as much of the limitations as possible with just enough of the Hell’s Angels vibe so that riders will still think it cool.
The Rebel 2017 is pretty much of the same concept with a fuel injection, a slightly forwarded raked riding position and more than decent brakes. The idea is likely to gain mass appeal for the Rebel 2017 because bikes are certainly outnumbered by cars on the roads. Bikes you can see on the roads today are more specialized which best describes Rebel 2017. Honda’s Rebel is the closest thing to a single bike that can be appreciated by different riders.
While it is too early to consider Honda’s Rebel to be the harbinger of the whole motorcycle industry, it is certainly in a position to attract more people to motorcycle riding. The more bikers, the more innovations will be made on new models of motorcycles that are introduced to the global market.
Practically speaking, if you are about 5 feet 6 inches in height, you can sit on the Rebel with both feet on the ground because the seat’s height is only 27.2 inches, remarkably low for a new motorbike model. The weight of the Rebel is only 408 pounds and a few more if you order the ABS version.
The Rebel’s chassis design does a great job of keeping the rider’s weight close the road. The Rebel excels when used for city commuting, beach highway cruising and short tours along back roads because you can let the wind wash over you.
