Honda CMX 500 Rebel

Raw, aggressive styling and a narrow, sexy frame

Everything you need and nothing you don’t, the Rebel comes loaded with attitude from fender to fender. Blacked-out and stripped down quality components around a rising fuel tank deliver its signature aggressive stance and a fat tyre provides a powerful presence.

The name says it all, one that won’t conform to the “norm”

Reviews

“while looking the slow and laid back cruiser, it can hustle along through the corners despite the massive 130/90 section front tyre.” Driven

“This is a small bike that does it’s best to feel big, and it is a rewarding ride for it.” Driven

“The Rebel proves that you do not need a 200 horsepower superbike to enjoy riding, you just need a cause” Autocar  

“It’s an easy bike to manoeuvre at walking pace and this, combined with its low seat height, makes it reassuring, easy going and perfect for less experienced riders” Motorcycle News

Smaller sized riders – this is the bike for your NZ adventure!
