Honda CMX500 Rebel
45bhp | 190kg | Seat height 690mm
The beating heart of the Rebel is a 471cc parallel-twin taken from the CBR500R, but retuned for more bottom end torque. The final result is 32ftlb at 6000rpm (and 45bhp at 8500rpm), which makes it ideal for A2 licence-holders. The twin has a 180-degree firing order that Honda say, combined with the 2-1 exhaust and shotgun muffler, gives it a heavy-duty pulsing feel. It has been blacked-out wherever possible, and amid the old-school looks does live some modern technology, such as ABS.
