    Honda Rebel gets an upgrade. 300 & 500cc's and Fat Tires.

    I recently got to ride a Honda Rebel 250, while taking the Motorcycle Safety Coarse.

    They had a couple TW's there, but I wanted to try the cruiser, since I've been riding the TW for a year already.

    The Rebel 250 was fun. I could easily whip it around, and I was scraping the pegs in the turns.

    It looks like the 2017 gets upgraded to 300 or 500cc's and has fat tires. The price doesn't seem too bad either.

    Honda use to make a 450 Rebel years ago, that 250 engine is proven tho. Same as the nighthawk 250 I thought?

    Honda did a good job updating the styling.
    It should be a fun bike to ride around town.

    More motorcycles I won't be able to own! Almost looks like a Harley Sportster.

    I might actually consider a cruiser if the pricing on the 500 was right. I like the 500f and x a lot, but like the styling on this better. and after using a nighthawk at my msf class I'd love to see a revived line of those but that's probably asking to much.
