Honda 2021 Rebel 500 ABS Cruisers Review Specs Price

The Honda 2021 Rebel 500 ABS Cruisers is a motorbike that departs from conventional motorcycle design and flees the monotonous boulevard drone. The tiny 471cc twin-cylinder engine, which has plenty of approachable power, is where it all begins. Everywhere, the low seat height, lightweight, and blacked-out appearance are wins, while extras like the Honda’s brand new slip/assist clutch add to the fun of riding. And the Rebel 500 is eager to turn it up, unlike other cruiser-class motorcycles that are only enjoyable when you ride slowly. Even anti-lock brakes are an option. Additionally, for 2021, we’ve introduced new colors and our new Rebel 500 ABS SE, which has some of our most popular accessories already fitted, including our Black Diamond-Stitch Seat, Black Fork Boots and Covers and a Black Headlight Cowl. So don’t let anybody lock you up; get a new Rebel 500 and break free from the mundane.

Honda 2021 Rebel 500 ABS Cruisers – Features and Price


Blacked-out style

The Rebel is a canvas on which you may paint anything you want. But this canvas isn’t dull-white, just like the one you buy at the art supply shop. Its new blacked-out engine parts, frame, and bodywork components look amazing during the day and at night.

Blacked-Out Muffler

The Honda 2021 Rebel 500 ABS Cruisers’ blacked-out exhaust system reduces the need to clean chrome and flawlessly complements the motorcycle’s overall design.

Classic Instrument Shape

Another impressive design fusing old and new is the Honda Rebel 500 ABS’s instruments that take a classical form and fill it with modern digital LCD data. The gauges have a fuel usage display and a gear position indication.

Four-Bulb Headlight

The headlamp is yet another impressive component of motorcycle design. You may have an ideal of both worlds with the Rebel. The Rebel has a style that oozes sophistication thanks to the glass lens, round nacelle design, and aluminum cast headlight mount. The lamp is brilliant and accurate.

All-new LED Lighting Package

The current trend is toward LED illumination, and as compared to incandescent lights, LEDs may be lighter, brighter, and may need fewer replacements during their lifetimes. The Rebel 500 has an all-LED lighting kit featuring the license plate light, turn signals, taillight, and headlight.

Your Rebel 500 is elevated to a higher level with the addition of our Brown Diamond-Stitch Seat, Black Upper Fork Covers, Black Fork Boots, and a Black Headlight Cowl.

Steel Rear Fender

Accurate and robust steel is always in trend. The Honda Rebel 500 has a steel rear fender that is either matte black or color-matched to the tank. The steel fender supports an optional/removable passenger seat, and the paint job is fantastic.

Wide 41mm Fork

The Honda 2021 Rebel 500 ABS Cruisers excels in the front, which is the most important aspect of style. The thick 41mm fork tubes provide a considerable presence and offer excellent steering and a comfortable ride, thanks to the front suspension.

Superior Rear Suspension

The rear shocks of the Honda 2021 Rebel 500 ABS Cruisers feature a unique spring rate and are loaded with nitrogen. It aims to expand your riding experience in performance and comfort much like the front suspension.

Broad Front Wheel

The front tire of the Honda 2021 Rebel 500 ABS Cruisers is wide (130/90-16), looks beautiful, and contributes to better handling and stopping power.


Low Seat Height

Most riders prefer low seats when it comes to them. The Honda 2021 Rebel 500 ABS Cruisers boasts one of the lowest seats i.e., 27.2 inches. When someone is riding, it’s incredibly comfy, and it’s highly simpler to flat-foot it at stoplights or in parking lots.

Light Weight

The Rebel 500, which weighs only 408 pounds with a full tank of gasoline, is far more enjoyable, loveable and approachable to ride than some larger vehicles, making it ideal for those just starting or seeking a quick bike. Performance is further supported by the low center of gravity and overall light weight.


The Honda 2021 Rebel 500 ABS Cruisers’ extreme narrowness makes it immensely more straightforward to get on and off the cruiser and to put your feet down while stopping, particularly at the crucial tank/seat junction. The Honda Rebel 500 ABS also accommodates a variety range of riders.

Spacious Rider Triangle

The handlebars, seat, and footpegs are the three places where a rider makes touch with the motorcycle. The rider triangle of the Honda Rebel 500 ABS finds the ideal mix between leisurely cruiser riding and more arduous sport riding. You have a commanding presence when you ride, and you’ll realize that when you sit down on a Honda Rebel 500 in your showroom.

Single Seat with Optional Passenger Seat & Footpeg Kit

Were you traveling alone and light? Do you want to bring a friend? Since the Honda Rebel 500 ABS’s optional passenger seat, footpegs, and footpeg hangers are all straightforward, bolt-on components and one can simply have it both ways.


Slipper/Assist Clutch

The slipper/assist clutch developed and refined in Honda’s racing vehicles gives you a softer grip pull when you draw the lever yet a firm lockup when you release it and apply power. It decreases the clutch effort at the bar by around 30%.

Superior Handling

Many modern motorcycles appear bizarre from a standing position but fall short on winding roads. Honda sets new standards for all its motorcycle’s handle and feel, and the Honda Rebel 500 ABS is an excellent example. We gave the Honda Rebel 500 ABS’s handling and cornering as much thought as designers did its eye-catching design.

2.9-Gallon Fuel Tank

The gasoline tank is a vital component of motorcycle design. The Rebel’s classic fuel tank form, which holds 2.9 gallons, is ageless, but it also serves a practical purpose by working with the bike’s excellent fuel economy to offer you a lot of range.

Aluminum Rear Subframe Die-Cast

Here’s an opportunity for Honda’s designers to add more style to a cruiser component. The new optional/removable passenger seat is supported by strong, discrete, light aluminum subframe/fender mounts.

Wide Rear Tire

They have plenty of traction on the Honda Rebel 500’s low, wide 16-inch rear tire, which also helps to reduce the bike’s total seat height and posture. It also seems to be tough.


Sporty Engine

A vehicle like the Rebel 500 is a fantastic fit for twin-cylinder engines. The 471cc of Honda Rebel 500’s engine is one of our greatest ever, and Honda twins are renowned for their adaptability. The compact parallel-twin engine contributes to the smaller overall bike size. Additionally, it has a lot of low-rpm torque and high-rpm performance.

Cast Aluminum Wheels

All-new cast wheels up front and down provide the Rebel a built-in classic aesthetic while being lightweight, practical, and simple to maintain and clean. The bike looks better because of its wide rims and tires.
