Honda has pulled the cover off from two new bobber-inspired models aimed at younger/newer riders: the Honda New Rebel 300 and Rebel 500 for the US market. The motorcycle is good for young riders who wish to keep the expenses under check.

The new bike features a trellis frame, and a liquid cooled parallel twin, which already vastly set it aside from the older model. The motorcycle offers true cruiser style riding to riders with least driving experience

Honda Rebel 300 uses the motor from CBR300R, keeping the 286cc, single cylinder engine under little stress due to cruiser body style and running dynamics

If we talked about Rebel 500 which comes with a more powerful twin cylinder, 471cc engine from the CBR500R. It is even tuned for better pulling power and targets riders with a bigger budget and more power requirement.

Honda’s new Rebel models are exercises in straightforward, minimalist design where every detail matters. Low, lean silhouettes are crowned by iconic fuel tanks, aggressively raked front ends and fat tires on large-diameter wheels, along with a stamped-steel rear fender and narrow frame body, resulting in stripped forms that express offbeat individuality from every angle. The evocative round, glass headlight sits up high in a die-cast aluminum mount, the speedometer is a compact dial with negative LCD display and blue backlight, and the ignition is housed below the left side of the fuel tank.

In both cases, the bikes’ riding positions are relaxed and neutral, with arms gently outstretched and feet dropping straight down to the mid-mounted pegs. Both the Rebel 500 and Rebel 300 are available in standard and ABS versions.

Honda describes the pair as “progressive customs that fuse tradition with groundbreaking new ideas and perspectives while providing ample scope for owner customization”

The Rebel 300 has been tentatively priced at $4,399(INR 3.0 lakh, approximate), whereas the Rebel 500 has been tentatively priced at $5,999(INR 4.10 lakh, approximate). Honda says it will announce the official MSRP next month. The bikes are expected to hit dealerships in April 2017.
