From the moment of its release in 2017, the Honda CMX500 Rebel hit the ground running, becoming the best-selling factory Custom bike in 2021 – and it continues to go great guns.
As soon as it became clear that this mid-range bobber would homage its 1930s-heyday roots while encapsulating Honda’s modern-day desire to innovate, it was born to succeed. Of course, the globally admired Japanese bike maker has never rested on its laurels. Which is why Honda quickly set about making an already great motorcycle even greater. Following recent revisions, it’s now become even more comfortable to ride, thanks to redesigned suspension and seating.
Possessed of gorgeously chunky good looks, this easy-riding bike offers terrific value for money, whether you’re a relative newcomer to the bobber scene or a seasoned veteran.
