- Non-adjustable Showa 41 mm fork

You can think of the Rebel as a blacked out Bobber style CB500F with improved low down power via new fuelling, fat tyres and a nice low seat.
The minimalist negative LCD dash sits in the middle of the bars, with the ignition on the left under the tank and the rear Aluminium sub-frame is removable with only two bolts to easily achieve a Bobber look.
Honda have also made the pillion pegs easily removable for maximum style. The 10-spoke 16" wheels are fitted with a Dunlop 130/90 tyre at the front and 150/80 at the rear.
Accessories include a 12V socket behind the dash, tubular luggage rack, saddlebags and fly screen.
- 2017-2018: Black (our fav), silver, red
- 2019: Matt black, blue
It's also known as the CMX500 and the project lead had previously designed the funky Vultus.
