Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > Rebel 500
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The Rebel 500 recycles Honda's 471 cc parallel twin into an interesting cruiser platform. It might not be for everyone, but Honda's gambling this bike will bring in younger riders. Honda doesn't list the official horsepower and torque numbers on its website, but we know it makes a bit less horsepower than the CBR500, and makes peak torque sooner. The MSRP is up for 2018, but ABS is now standard.
