Ready to upgrade your current ride? Then it’s time. Time for something completely new. Step up to the new Rebel CMX1100. A bare-boned motorcycle that pays homage to the fat-tyred ‘bobber’ silhouette of days gone by, but lays down contemporary design details everywhere. Sure, it’s one great looking bike, and will casually cruise an open boulevard. But, by design, it’s so much more than that.
OLD SCHOOL’S NEW COOL
The Rebel CMX1100 is something special…
With its individual looks – as well as easy, nimble handling and fun engine response – riders, many new to two wheels, have enjoyed and customised the Rebel CMX500 the world over. But now’s the moment for more. The family resemblance is instant, but the Rebel CMX1100 has a great deal going on. The torquey, characterful parallel twin-cylinder engine features Throttle By Wire management, 4 riding modes, Honda Selectable Torque Control and Wheelie Control. Cruise control is standard and our unique, six-speed Dual Clutch Transmission an option. And this cool cruiser is also made for corners – 43mm cartridge-style front forks, piggyback rear shocks and a radial-mount four-piston front brake caliper see to that.
SOHC, 8-valve, parallel twin-cylinder powerplant
Whether you want to cruise or hustle, this engine rewards. 64kW peak power with 98Nm peak torque are strong numbers, and will exhilarate every time you wind on the throttle. But, less obvious, is that compact dimensions centralise mass neatly, making for a low centre of gravity with maximum ground clearance.
4 riding modes, 3-level HSTC and Wheelie Control
You are in charge of this engine’s output; STANDARD mode, at low speed is relaxed but as rpm rises it unleashes much more potential. RAIN transmits low engine power and engine braking, matched to high Wheelie Control and HSTC for extra reassurance, or a relaxed ride. SPORT gives aggressive power delivery, with low Wheelie Control and HSTC intervention. USER mode allows complete customisation.
Six-speed manual gearbox or Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT)
You can choose either a six-speed manual transmission or unique, six-speed DCT, which offers manual gear changes (from trigger shifters on the left handlebar) or smooth, automatic performance with shift character reflecting riding mode selection.
Flexible seating and USB Type-C charger
You can ride solo or carry a passenger, as the rear seat pad quickly and easily unbolts. Under the seat there’s a useful 3L storage compartment, which features a USB Type-C charging point.
Full LED lighting
The evocative, low-set 175mm diameter circular headlight houses four direct emitting LED bulbs with thick inner lenses. The small, 55mm turn indicators have classic looks, while the oval, clear-lensed LED taillight strikes a contemporary note.
High quality suspension front and rear
The cartridge-style front forks feature blacked-out 2-piece lowers (manufactured from both extruded and die-cast aluminium) mated to 43mm stanchions, finished in a dark navy oxide titanium coating. Twin, spring preload-adjustable rear shocks feature pressurised piggyback reservoirs for consistent damping.
Big brakes and tyres
Braking power is served up by a front radial-mount mono-block four-piston caliper biting a 330mm floating disc and rear, single-piston caliper and 256mm disc. Both are managed by ABS. Cast aluminium wheels feature sporty Y-shaped spokes and wear fat tyres; a 180/65B-16 rear and 130/70B-18 front.
Nothing less than undiluted, thrilling motorcycling.
The Rebel CMX1100 is built for the pure pleasure that two wheels bring, a blacked-out 21st century roadster-meets-bobber, designed from the ground-up to be an engaging, enjoyable ride, with engine and handling performance potential to spare. Every detail makes it different; the flangeless fuel tank features two-tone paint, both front and rear mudguards are drawn from 1mm-thick steel and mount with die-cast aluminium brackets. Seat height is just 700mm, and the soft-density material contoured to give support under hard acceleration. An offset, 120mm diameter negative digital display offers intuitive information delivery while wide, uncluttered handlebars mount with substantial, 1-inch clamps.
