The CMX1100 Rebel receives two brand-new contemporary colours for 24YM
The A2 licence-friendly 500cc twin-cylinder CMX500 Rebel, released in 17YM, fused tradition with ground-breaking new ideas to capture younger riders for whom a motorcycle is so much more than just transport – riders for whom their motorcycle is a lifestyle, an attitude and an expression of individual identity.
The Rebel’s combination of a timeless ‘bobber’ look and unique, forward-looking, contemporary style earned it immediate popularity in its first sales season. And it has been far from a one-year wonder: in both 2021 and 2022, the CMX500 Rebel was the best-selling custom style machine in Europe. Accessible, easy to ride and live with, by going its own way the Rebel proved an accomplished success in standard trim. And as a blank canvas for customisation, it has been a machine more than ready for whatever its owner’s imagination has had in store for it.
For 21YM, where the CMX500 Rebel led, a new motorcycle followed - the CMX1100 Rebel. It took the essence of what’s made the smaller bike so special and added more performance, more character and a wealth of Honda’s most advanced technology.
Armed with all of the above, and a keen price tag, the CMX1100 Rebel offers a step up – or across from a different segment altogether – for a wide range of riders looking for something that extra bit different.
For 23YM, the family expanded once again with the introduction of the CMX1100T Rebel, a dedicated touring version ready for the call of the open road.
This combination of performance, specification and accessibility has clearly resonated with riders across Europe. The CMX1100 Rebel sits second behind its smaller sibling in the custom bikes sales chart for 2023 year to date.
For 24YM, it carries on mechanically unchanged but the standard model gets two striking new colours and the CMX1100T benefits from a new colour combination to maintain its broad appeal.
