The Honda Rebel — an All Good Motorcycle

The Honda CMX motorcycle, popularly known as the Rebel, is an entry level that has all the zip necessary to keep up larger and more expensive

I purchased the Honda Rebel new in 07 for $3200 and have been satisfied. I had not ridden a motorcycle in 40 years and wanted a bike was inexpensive, light, zippy and maintain speed in moderate around town as well as be to make road trips of miles to view parts of the US. I am not mechanically inclined so I wanted a that was known to have few problems and would last for a time with minimal

My car is now 20 years old and I have no intention to it.

The Honda Rebel fits the perfectly. I joined a local club and made several day of 150-250 miles and the Honda had absolutely no problem keeping up the Harley, Goldwing, Kawasaki or BMW as well as the assortment of other that are operated by this riding club.

The Honda Rebel can easily a 50-60 MPH pace and while on the Interstate for short durations it was able to maintain 75MPH. The 234 cc air twin cylinder engine has manufactured by Honda for more a decade and has been proven Surprisingly, there was some left although as a light it does get a bit hairy when or being passed by big rigs on the

I would not recommend this for lengthy high speed riding. However for roads in the MPH range, it is perfectly adequate and smoothly. I consistently achieve 65 miles per gallon so the fuel is minuscule.

The Honda Rebel fuel holds a generous 2.6 gallons so the is in the order of 150-170 miles refueling is necessary.

The Honda ride is smooth and the position of the is upright. I did not even consider where the rider is positioned in a leaning position. At 5′ 10 and 175 I find that my legs and are positioned comfortably and the bike is to control.

The seat height is a little shy of 27 inches and the Honda tips the scales at just a over 300 pounds.

In the past 8 I have ridden a little 3,000 miles. I have frequent safety and maintenance on the bike to insure the chain is lubricated, all nuts and bolts remained tight and the oil level is In fact I have changed the oil not because it needed it, but because it takes a few minutes and I am of the opinion a well lubricated engine last a lifetime.

Other than the oil changes, and that tire air pressure is there has been no maintenance

The Honda Rebel has virtually no produced accessories available so an has to search a bit to find the right I did add a windshield and a small rear rack. I recognized the need for a after swallowing a few unknown that meandered into my That bitter aftertaste me that a windshield was probably a

The windshield was simple to install and the ride much more as it diverted the wind over my As the colder months have I also noted that it was warmer with the windshield

The bike rack lets me small items on the back down with bungee I stress small. I have a small overnight bag that I use to a jacket, hat, a few tools and paraphernalia that I can’t home without.

I intend to purchase a sissy not because I want to carry a but it will add a way to secure baggage for a trip. I have taken the Rebel on one overnight trip to a park about 200 miles where my route across roads enabled me to enjoy the air and foliage. I brought my sleeping a small tent, a change of some camping meals and hit the

All fit nicely when tied to the and the weather cooperated for my short jaunt.

I wanted to capture the of the open road and the Honda was just the bike for me. Inexpensive, to maintain, reliable and nice

It is recommended that if parts or are needed that Jacks Warehouse ( ) be examined as appear to have the most selection available and cater to the Honda Rebel market.

Are any drawbacks to the Honda Rebel? For me are none, however, it is not a Harley and have the trademark varoom. is limited, but in reality, how much one want to carry on a motorcycle?

It is a bike so it becomes a bit squirrelly at in excess of 65MPH. The electrical is just sufficient to operate the turn signals and such, so it is to add additional lights.

The bottom line is that if you are in the for economical transportation and want to the option to take to the open at an inexpensive price, you might to include the Honda Rebel as one of considerations.
