It seems Japan’s motorcycle builders try to up every single cruiser especially the entry-level one not only Harley-Davidson is far from it, but also due to the that motorcycle buyers (at least the ones that go for a are more interested in getting to destination alive rather benefiting of a lot of horsepower and big dimensions.

from that idea, delivers the air-cooled, 234cc, twin, SOHC; two valves per powered Rebel, a machine for who prefer finesse. Being with a 26 mm carburetor and mating the motor to a five-speed gearbox, cruiser is simplicity itself. combined with a 331 lbs wet weight, inches low seat height, not makes the Honda Rebel to handle, but a perfect commuter very often, the choice of riders.


But the Rebel by far a new arrival. This bike has than two decades behind its and a change of identity so it is quite a digging into its past.

Honda had first introduced quarter-liter cruiser under the name back in 1984 in to be part of the frenzy that together with the style. the bike was an air-cooled, 234cc, OHC twin that was electrically and fed through a 26mm carburetor with accelerator pump. featured even the bore and of the engine you can find on the Rebel so the five-speed, constant mesh was nothing out of the ordinary.

Neither the drum brakes. In its first of production, the CM250C was pretty a lame replica of the Honda There was even the Black and Red scheme on the tank and side

Starting 1985, they name turned into Honda refined the inappropriate for such a small motorcycle, but the still seemed like too high mounted. At least a brake was mounted on that wheel.

Colors available were Supreme Red and Pearl Stellar and the side panels were now plated.

In 1986, the handlebars lowered and the bike ended up pretty much as the one that is sold today. The Candy Red color was replaced by Candy Blue while keeping the Stellar Black. That model year saw the addition of a edition model called the

It was only available Pearl Black painted, but added striping on the gas tank and rear Also, the gas tank cap and carburetor were gold while the cases, fork legs and levers were chrome

For 1987, colors were Black or Wineberry Red. Honda ceased production of small cruiser model.

1996 was the year of new beginnings as an irony of faith the all-new Rebel was Magna Red colored. have lowered the seat and the gas tank, but the engine was the same.

2001, the Honda Rebel was what you will buy today and colors and small details as graphics were to be later and/or changed.


motorcycles offer a more decent alternative to the Rebel, the V Star 250. Previously Yamaha Virago, the bike is for the 249cc, air-cooled, 60-degree engine, a low seat (27 inches the ground) and retro looks.

But more to be said about small powerplant. For starters, any V-Twin, it delivers low-end and smooth acceleration all through the range. A 26 mm Mikuni carburetor has to do with that as well as the transmission. Also electrically and getting an awesome 78 mpg, Star is a great cruiser to on.

But probably the best of it is the $3,790 MSRP.

No matter a motorcycle is created to do, looking is a must and the 2009 Honda stays true to its name. on bigger models, this is definitely designed to attract than a few looks with its chromed pieces (headlight, signal lights and instruments rims, exhaust, rear and fender ornaments) and also the new paintjobs, Red and Blue.

Very I happen to hear considerations the fact that a cruiser brought to motorcycles that is not by a V-Twin engine only them standard models, but for me, are much simpler. So as long as the is sold as a cruiser by the company created it, I won’t argue that. Furthermore, featuring a of standard spoked wheels and a but classic design, the Rebel to convince me of its cruiser roots.

Also, with a 30-degree 40’ you can’t call it anything but a cruiser.

The fenders and gas tank smooth while the foamy indicate that you and your will be riding in comfort all day Indeed, a V-Twin engine definitely make it stand out more, but this high-revving is at least a good replacement if not the thing for it.

Apart from the new Honda also ads some graphics on the sides of the gas tank in to enhance the aggressive look try to bring on the 2009 model


Honda may not bring a engine on the scene, but their success is an undisputable fact and it is due to a good marketing strategy into a $3,399 manufacturer’s retail price.


The rest is just and Honda life long For reviving this old model doesn’t deserve our appreciation as it simply not stop producing it in the place, but because they the possibility to properly learn how on a machine that could become the ideal Christmas for our girlfriends (or wives)oh, you get the point.
