Honda Rebel 250 Review

not surprising that Honda’s is one of the most frequently researched on this site. With gas likely to rise again the giant economies of China and start pulling back their power band, and traffic choking most of the metro areas, the idea of on an affordable little motorcycle is to more and more people.

these small 250s well over 60 mpg, are serious fuel savings even though the purchase of the Rebel ($3,999) will buy you gallons of gas at $3.50 per, and you over 68,000 miles at 60 Obviously, if it’s just the of gas that motivates you, is not the answer. But if affordable and fun transportation is you’re looking for, keep reading.

As a 6-foot-5-inch tall man weighing 218 I am not the greatest match for this It is compact, light, and has a small, seat. Still, even I a find a reasonably comfortable for rides of moderate length, and I the 331-pound ready-to-ride weight to be a advantage during slow and when manhandling the bike.

The is a cinch to ride. The 243cc starts willingly and soon to a point where throttle is quick and eager. The clutch is a pull, and its engagement is gradual and sensed.

There are only speeds in the gearbox, but their is light and positive.

Topping all is a seating position that is a compromise between the pronounced style of bigger cruisers and the stance demanded by standard The only drawback to the Rebel’s layout occurred when I a lot of steering lock and the handlebar back to contact my knee. shorter riders, this happen.

My first ride home Honda’s HQ made me feel the Rebel was seriously underpowered and But then I put a few miles on it and started it quite a bit higher. Although no tachometer to help you gauge speed, it’s not difficult to the surge of speed provided by the 18.5 horsepower peak at rpm, nor the tingling vibrations that suggest it’s to shift.

Launching hard and the little bike out will get you ahead of the traffic as long as guy in his BMW M3 doesn’t think your is a challenge to his masculinity. And you can normally along with traffic without much effort.

I even took the bike up the 405 freeway in the South Bay in LA, where drivers with homicidal move along at over 80 mph chance they get. To my the rebel would run an indicated 80, and pull to its last numerals on the mph_when held wide This with a big, rider aboard.

The 243cc four-valve twin is a well-proven It’s been around 1985, and there wasn_t wrong with it then. So periods of wide-open use probably do it any harm at all, but riding at full throttle and elevated speeds seems a bit like and unusual treatment.

I found it easier to back off the a bit to relieve the engine of this flogging, slow to an indicated 75 and then cruise with mental and mechanical stress.

what cruiser-style motorcycles are to be about, anyway. And that’s nice thing about the While few hardcase cruiser are likely to take the Rebel_s styling seriously, it’s a option for beginner riders who the Harley look particularly there’s hardly any tradeoff in the department.

With comparatively and skinny tires fitted (a up front and a 130/90-15 on the back), the would not seem particularly to fast cornering. But it does well. Its handling is light and and the bike leans about as far as I’d to lean a bike on modest with this sort of position.

While the rear shocks five-position spring-preload collars, the is not adjustable. Both ends are soft, and allow fairly pitching motions on the brakes, but not enough to spoil the ride. The comprise a single front which is just about to the task, and a rear drum, which not much is asked

That just about up the Rebel’s role in life; an inexpensive machine suited to light duty use. one should not underestimate the mechanical or assembly quality of the Rebel. a Honda, and that means it likely run way longer than expect, given the requisite of maintenance.

The Rebel’s natural place in the is as a starter bike, but I’d make the that it works as well or than a comparable scooter. For of us who’d prefer to swing a leg a bike and shift our own gears, the natural choice. That light and maneuverable is just the on the cake.
