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.
