2021 Rebel 500 ABS SE Honda Cruisers – Features and Price

2021 Rebel 500 ABS SE Honda Cruisers


Blacked-Out Style

The Rebel is a canvas for your creativity. However, unlike the canvas you get from an art shop, this one is not plain white. The blacked-out engine components, chassis, and bodywork features of the vehicle look terrific during the day and are much more attractive at night.

Blacked-Out Muffler

Forget polishing chrome; the Rebel’s blacked-out exhaust system complements the bike’s entire appearance. And maybe the most significant benefit? The incredible sound is crucial to the riding experience.

Classic Instrument Shape

The Rebel’s instruments are another unique piece that combines the old and the new by using a classic design and filling it with thoroughly modern LCD information. The gauges feature a display for gear position and fuel economy.

Four-Bulb Headlight

Another critical component of motorcycle design is the headlamp. The Rebel combines the advantages of both worlds. The lamp is bright and accurate, and the circular nacelle, aluminum-cast headlight mount, and glass lens give the Rebel a distinguished appearance.

All LED Lighting Package

LED lighting is the current standard. LEDs may be lighter, brighter, and need fewer replacements during their lifespan compared to incandescent lamps. Therefore, the Rebel 500 has an LED headlight, taillight, turn signals, and license plate light.

Color Choices

Steel Rear Fender

All-new Real steel never goes out of style. The Rebel’s rear fender is either color-matched to the tank or matte black and made of steel. The paint looks fantastic, and the steel fender helps to give a sturdy base for the detachable and optional passenger seat.

Wide 41mm Fork

The most important aspect of styling is the front, and the Rebel hits it out of the park. The front suspension provides accurate steering and a comfortable ride, but the 41mm fork tubes also give the bike a notable appearance.

Refined Rear Suspension

The rear shocks of the Rebel 500 are nitrogen-filled and feature a unique spring rate. Like the front suspension, it aims to improve the rider’s comfort and performance.

Wide Front Wheel

Not only does the Rebel’s wide 130/90-16 front tire look beautiful, but it also contributes to outstanding handling and stopping power.


Low Seat Height

Virtually everyone prefers seat heights to be lower. The Rebel features one of the lowest seats in any lineup, measuring just 27.2 inches. It is comfortable when riding and makes walking easy at stoplights and in parking lots.

Light Weight

The Rebel 500, which weighs only 408 pounds with a full tank of gas, is much more enjoyable and user-friendly to ride than some larger machines, making it ideal for beginners or those seeking a nimble bike—additionally, the small total weight and low center of gravity aid performance.

Super-narrow, particularly at the crucial tank/seat junction, the Rebel makes it easy to mount and dismount the motorcycle, as well as place your feet on the ground during stops. In addition, the Rebel accommodates a range of riders.

Roomy Rider Triangle

Three points of contact exist between the rider and the motorcycle: the seat, the handlebar, and the footpegs. The Rebel’s rider triangle finds the ideal mix between relaxed cruiser and more spirited sports riding. You have a dominating presence when you ride, and the moment you seat on a Rebel at your dealership, you’ll realize it.

Single Seat featuring Optional Passenger Seat

Are you traveling lightly and independently? Want to bring a companion? Like the superficial appearance of a solitary seat? Are you interested in the adaptability of a passenger seat? The optional passenger seat, footpegs, and footpeg hangers for the Rebel are all simple, bolt-on components.


Slipper/Assist Clutch

The slipper/assist clutch, developed and refined in Honda’s racing bikes, allows for a lighter clutch pull at the lever yet a strong lockup when the lever is released and power is applied. This technique decreases clutch effort at the bar by about 30%.

Superior Handling

Many of today’s motorbikes are attractive while parked but underwhelm on curvy roads. The Rebel exemplifies the high standards that Honda sets for how its motorcycles handle and feel; we’ve devoted as much attention to how this bike curves and heads as we have to its striking appearance.

2.9-Gallon Fuel Tank

The gasoline tank is an essential component of motorcycle design. The iconic fuel-tank shape of the Rebel, which holds 2.9 gallons, is timeless, but it also works in tandem with the bike’s excellent fuel economy to provide ample range.

Die-Cast Aluminum Rear Subframe

Here is an opportunity for Honda’s designers to make a functional motorcycle component look extra cool. The aluminum subframe/fender mounts are sturdy, understated, light, and provide a stable base for the removable/optional passenger seat.

Wide Rear Tire

The low, fat 16-inch rear tire on the Rebel provides excellent traction and helps reduce the bike’s overall seat height and stance. And it appears challenging as well.


Sporty Engine

Twin-cylinder engines are an excellent choice for the Rebel 500. Honda twins are renowned for their versatility, and the Rebel 500’s 471cc engine is among our best. The narrow parallel-twin engine helps reduce the overall size of the motorcycle. In addition, it offers a great deal of low-rpm torque and a great deal of high-rpm performance.

Cast Aluminum Wheels

Front and rear cast wheels are lightweight, functional, and simple to keep clean, giving the Rebel an appearance that belies its retro design. The bike’s wide rims and tires also contribute to its appearance.
