Riders worldwide enjoyed how the new Honda 2020 Rebel 300 ABS Cruisers blends a fresh, modern style with classic characteristics like a low seat height, lightweight, narrow 286cc single-cylinder engine, and user-friendly power band when we first introduced it a few years ago. We preserved all of the finest components for 2020. Still, We added some savory updates, including LED illumination (headlights, taillights, turn signals, and more), new instrumentation, a slipper/assist clutch that reduces clutch pull, updated suspension, and a whole slew of new Honda accessories. In a nutshell, this fantastic bike is even better than before. That is a revolution we can all support.
The Rebel 500 and Rebel 300, the industry’s best-selling small-displacement cruiser models, are designed with a motorcyclist’s necessities in mind. The models are stylish and user-friendly, with a simple appearance, configurable components, and outstanding performance in every situation, from city streets to twisty back roads. The 2020 models expand on an existing strong feeling of pleasure with LED lighting front and rear, performance-enhancing technologies for the chassis and engine, and a growing selection of accessories while keeping the classic fuel tank and narrow-style frame.
Honda 2020 Rebel 300 ABS Cruisers – Features and Price
New For 2020
In stop-and-go situations, the new assist/slipper clutch decreases clutch-lever operating load by 30%, resulting in less effort and improved controlled deceleration.
For increased handling and comfort, the updated fork incorporates fresh polishing on the inner pipe for smoother operation, as well as a higher spring rate and revised oil levels. Nitrogen gas is now used to maintain damping force in the shock damper tube, while a higher spring rate enhances handling and a reworked bump rubber optimist’s response force. To enhance the classic appearance, are positioned and reshaped LED headlamp is teamed with new LED turn signals and a revised LED taillight. The rider can get important information from the updated LCD meter, including gear position indication and fuel economy. For added comfort, the seat has been given a new thickness and solidity.
Chassis / Suspension
Arms are softly extended and feet drop straight down to the mid-mounted pegs in both models’ riding stances, which are calm and neutral. Sporty lean angles are possible with good ground clearance. The Rebel’s beautiful tubular-steel frame carries the engine in three locations. It is meant to be as small as possible around the rider’s inseam to accommodate the low-slung aesthetic. The trail is 110mm wide and has a 28° rake. The bottom legs are blacked-out, and the 41mm fork stanchions are positioned wide at 230mm apart for rigidity, comfort, and aesthetics. With a 30° fork angle, a 58.7-inch wheelbase, and a 27.2-inch seat height, the steering is balanced and neutral.
The frame body is thin, with a unique rear loop that separates the seat from the stamped-metal rear fender. On 16-inch cast-aluminum wheels, Dunlop tires (size 130/90-16 front, 150/80-16 rear) are installed. Standard and ABS versions of the Rebel 500 and Rebel 300 are also available. From every angle, the iconic peanut-shaped fuel tank, aggressively raked front end, and fat tires on large-diameter brand new wheels result in stripped forms that express offbeat individuality. Twin standard, side-mounted dual shocks with two-step preload adjustments are placed on a blacked-out 45mm tubular swingarm. Ignition is located underneath the fuel tank’s left side.
Engine / Drivetrain
A 471cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine with powerful bottom-end torque and a smooth, linear power delivery powers the Honda 2020 Rebel 300 ABS Cruisers. Roller rocker arms are used in the Rebel 500 cylinder head; shim-type valve adjustment enables them to be light, decreasing valve-spring load and less friction.
The Honda 2020 Rebel 300 ABS Cruisers features a silent (SV Chain) cam chain with Vanadium on the surface of its pins to minimize friction and boost dust resistance. The diameter of the inlet valve is 26.0mm, while the exhaust valve diameter is 21.5mm. Striations on the piston skirt of the Rebel 500 have been added to minimize friction. After isonite nitriding, an AB 1 salt bath procedure creates a protective oxidization membrane. The main couple-balancer lies behind the cylinders, near the bike’s center of gravity, and the Rebel 500 crankshaft pins are phased at 180°. Scissor gears are used in the primary and balancer gears to reduce noise.
The crank counterweight is designed to be couple-balanced, and its modest weight enables the engine to spin quickly and with little inertia. Centrifugally cast thin-walled sleeves are used in Rebel 500 crankcases. The “pumping” losses that might occur with a 180° phased firing sequence are reduced by their internal design. The capacity of a deep oil sump is 3.2 liters. A mighty 286cc single-cylinder engine powers the Rebel 300. A six-speed transmission is intended to provide smooth gear shifts. Mechanical components are blacked out for a robust, minimalist design, and a specially constructed muffler produces a pulsing exhaust tone.
For the Rebel 500 and Honda 2020 Rebel 300 ABS Cruisers, a comprehensive variety of approved Honda Accessories are available to assist them in creating their unique style. The attractive main seat, headlight cowl, meter visor, fork cover, and new saddlebag that can be removed without tools and comes with shoulder straps for simple usage when you leave the bike are among the available accessories.
