The new Honda 2022 Rebel 1100 Powerful Cruisers will revolutionize your perception of cruisers. Nevertheless, it has the classic features that have kept cruisers in style for decades, like a low seat, a twin-cylinder engine, and a comfortable riding posture. Yet it offers something that most cruisers don’t: actual arm-straightening performance and a chassis and suspension that enables you to ramp up the speed when the route becomes tricky. We also avoided the common pitfall of making a high-performance vehicle appear like a toy for kids by giving the Rebel 1100 a sleek, modern design. Throw off your notions of what a cruiser should look like and replace them with this Rebel.
Our anti-lock brakes and cruise control are standard on every model. And they all perform thanks admirably to our Unicam motor. Choose between our state-of-the-art automatic DCT gearbox and a classic 6-speed manual. Go on weekend rides on it. Take a nighttime ride down the canyon or the boulevard. Honda offers a wide variety of aftermarket parts and accessories to let you personalize your ride. You can do it all with the new Rebel 1100, and you’ll have a great time doing it.
Honda 2022 Rebel 1100 Powerful Cruisers – Features and Specs
1084cc Twin-Cylinder Engine
Compared to other modern cruisers, the Rebel 1100’s engine is quite powerful. The thin parallel-twin design produces constant torque from idle to redline. In addition to having the same low-end power as our Africa Twin, the Rebel 1100 also revs higher than any other bike in its class, makes for a comfortable cruise, and is a joy to ride.
Unicam Engine Design
The Honda Rebel 1100 utilizes Honda’s proprietary Unicam® engine design, which allows for a compact cylinder head. The cylinder heads were designed to improve the efficiency and the engine’s overall power output. That’s like having a double dessert!
When possible, a twin set should use a 180-degree crank. The 270-degree phasing of the Rebel 1100’s exhaust produces a terrific sound, and the power delivery is innovative.
The brand-new Rebel 1100 is the kind of bike that makes you want to go for a spin. For this reason, we’ve included a cruise control system, much as on our Gold Wings. Want to use the weekend to relax and drive aimlessly? Not at all!
Throttle By Wire
Our throttle-by-wire technology substantially augments the capabilities of the Rebel 1100. First, the Honda Selectable Torque Control has four settings. Second, there are four different modes of power supply available: Standard, Rain, Sport, and a user-defined option. Throttle-by-wire, which Honda first used on the RC213V MotoGP motorcycles that won the World Championship, is an excellent illustration of how Honda’s technology can benefit you.
Six-Speed Manual Transmission
The clutch lever on the Rebel 1100 is conveniently located on the handlebar. It’s a tried-and-true, durable construction that also helps the bike save some weight.
The slipper/assist clutch (on the manual-transmission model) was developed and refined in Honda’s racing machines. It allows for a lighter clutch pull at the lever yet a strong lockup when the lever is released and power is applied. Technology has been developed that reduces clutch effort by roughly 30 percent.
Many modern bikes are impressive, but they fall short when the road turns curvy. As a company, Honda is quite particular about how its motorcycles ride and handle. The Rebel 1100 is a prime example of this: the designers and engineers behind this bike put as much care into the way it turns and is handled as they did to give it its striking appearance.
Low Center Of Gravity, Compact Mass
The Rebel 1100’s small engine design and the low placement of heavy components like the crankshaft contribute to the bike’s good handling.
The frame of the Rebel 1100 contributes significantly to the bike’s excellent handling and also serves as a critical design feature. From the steering head to the pivot point of the swing arm, the trellis pattern creates a diagonal solid theme line.
Cast Aluminum Wheels
Front and rear cast wheels are lightweight, functional, and simple to maintain, and they give the Rebel 1100 a modern appearance that belies its vintage design. The bike looks great, partly thanks to the giant rims and tires.
Powerful Disc Brakes
The radially placed front brake caliper of the Rebel 1100 provides the superior stopping force. The radial-mount construction strengthens it, improving brake feel and control, and holds a single, enormous 330mm disc. At the back, a 256mm disc provides equally impressive stopping power.
The Honda anti-lock braking system is standard on the automatic DCT and the manual-shift Rebel 1100. It’s a handy tool for when you need to stop safely in less-than-ideal situations, such as when you’re riding in traffic, in the rain, or on unfamiliar routes. Simply put, it’s a must-have for a bike of this caliber.
With the same Honda Selectable Torque Control and front and rear wheel-speed sensors as our cutting-edge CBR1000RR-R Fire blade, the Rebel 1100 can maneuver with incredible agility (HSTC). There are three distinct degrees of wheelie control available with the system. The Rebel 1100 is not a low-tech cruiser, as some others may be.
Wide Rear Tire
The Rebel’s low and squat posture is facilitated by the bike’s large 16-inch 180/65 rear tire, which also provides enough traction. Its physical appearance is also one of strength.
Wide Front Wheel
The wide 130/70-18 front tire of the Rebel 1100 improves not only the bike’s aesthetics but also its handling and stopping ability.
We welcome you to express yourself freely within our diverse and welcoming Rebel family. Yet they aren’t the standard white color of art shop canvas. Its blacked-out engine components, frame, fork, and bodywork parts look stunning during the day and are more striking when illuminated by headlights. The final-drive chain was even black-plated.
The Rebel’s blacked-out exhaust system complements the bike’s overall appearance and eliminates the need to clean chrome or turn exhaust pipes. Maybe even more crucial, though? The thrilling roar completes each ride.
The motorcycle’s headlamp is also an important component. You can have it all with the Rebel 1100. The Rebel 1100 has a spherical nacelle that is three inches in diameter with an LED light that is both brilliant and pinpoint accurate.
All LED Lighting Package
Nowadays, light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are standard in the industry. LEDs have the potential to be more portable, more energy efficient, and less wasteful throughout their lifespan compared to incandescent lamps. Hence, the Rebel 1100 has an entirely LED lighting kit, including the headlight, taillight, turn signals, and license-plate light.
Seamless Fuel Tank
The gasoline tank on the Rebel 1100 has a flange at the bottom; can you see it? False alarm! The reason is that there simply isn’t such a thing. We manufactured the gasoline tank without a flange, like on the finest custom-built motorcycles, to improve the bike’s aesthetics by eliminating unnecessary curves and sharp edges.
3.6-Gallon Fuel Tank
The gasoline tank plays a crucial role in motorcycle construction. The classic design of the Rebel 1100’s 3.6-gallon gasoline tank stands the test of a time, and the motorcycle’s exceptional fuel economy enhances its practicality.
Left-Side Ignition Switch/Storage Access
The Rebel 1100’s simplified dashboard is made possible by moving the ignition switch to the left. The same button may open a handy three-liter storage space behind the seat.
How about some fantastic color options for the year 2021? Look at some available bikes: You may choose from two different metallic hues: black and Bordeaux red.
Steel Front and Rear Fenders
There will never be the better time to invest in natural steel. The front and rear fenders of the Rebel 1100 are made of steel. A shorter front fender is also an available extra.
Premium Rear Suspension
The Rebel 1100 is designed for severe canyon riding and relaxed cruising, so we fitted it with a set of nitrogen-filled, remote-reservoir shocks with a special spring rate. Similarly to the front suspension, this component aims to improve the rider’s comfort and the vehicle’s handling.
Low Seat Height
Seat heights in cruisers are generally preferred to be lower. One of the lowest seats available is on the Rebel 1100, which measures only 27.5 inches. You may relax while riding, and it’s simpler to walk at red lights and parking garages.
Light Overall Weight
With a full gas tank, the Rebel 1100 only weighs 487 pounds (manual transmission model), making it over 80 pounds less than some of its rivals. Compared to bigger bikes, its light weight makes it simpler to control and more enjoyable to ride. Its lightness and low center of gravity also contribute to improved performance.
Narrow Overall Width
The Rebel 1100 is very slim, particularly at the pivotal tank/seat junction, which facilitates getting on and off the bike and resting one’s feet while stopped. Not only that, but the Rebel is adaptable to a broad range of riders.
Roomy Rider Triangle
There are three main contact points between a rider and a motorcycle: the seat, the handlebars, and the foot pegs. Riders may choose between a relaxed cruiser experience and a more intense sport riding position on the Rebel 1100. Sitting on a Rebel at your neighborhood Honda dealership will confirm that you are a rider of dominating presence.
