Introducing Honda’s big new Rebel
Honda Motor Europe is pleased to announce a further addition to its model line-up for the coming 2021 season: the CMX1100 Rebel.
Honda’s unique take on custom cool, the Rebel 500, gets a big, bold sibling. Using the same formula - classic bare-boned ‘bobber’ with a modern-day twist - the CMX1100 Rebel offers to relax and excite in equal measure. Serious performance is on tap from its 1,084cc parallel twin-cylinder engine, plus a meaty character and evocative exhaust note; Honda Selectable Torque Control, Wheelie Control, Cruise Control and 3 default riding modes working through Throttle by Wire to make up a comprehensive package of supporting electronics. High-quality running gear includes 43mm cartridge-style front forks, ‘piggyback’ rear shock absorbers and four-piston, radial-mount front brake caliper. All lighting is LED, with negative LCD instrument display. A Dual Clutch Transmission option will be available.
Increased cubic capacity for Honda’s range-topping SH brings with it faster top speed and improved acceleration. The engine is also now EURO5 compliant. A refined frame design saves weight while all-new bodywork evolves the style and includes LED headlight, taillight, indicators and LCD meter panel. There’s also now a USB Type-C socket under the seat.
One of Europe’s favourite all-rounders gets a well-rounded evolution: more power for the engine, plus higher redline and revised gearbox ratios, which come hand-in-hand with Throttle By Wire management, 3 riding modes and refined, expanded Honda Selectable Torque Control. Its renowned fuel efficiency is maintained, and a full 6kg has been shaved from the kerb weight. A redesigned frame is clothed in sharper-edged styling, the unique up-front storage compartment is usefully larger and seat height 30mm lower. The Dual Clutch Transmission variant continues to offer a technology unique to Honda on two wheels. A new screen, LED lighting and LCD dash round out the update.
