Honda has just released a bigger sibling to park next to its Honda Rebel 500. This cruiser bike aims to be a motorcycle built for the open highway that can also lean into the turns when the road starts to hug the side of a mountain. The Honda Rebel 1100 allows the rider to sit low thanks to engineers tilting the 1084 cc engine by 35 degrees, thus lowering the bike’s center of gravity. This is also the first Honda cruiser motorcycle to offer a six-speed semi-automatic transmission, allowing riders to change gear by flicking a shift-button on the handlebar.
The engine produces 87 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 72 lb-ft of torque at 4750 rpm on a motorcycle that weighs less than 500 pounds. Riders can choose from four different modes: Standard, Sport, Rain, and User. ABS braking system and wheelie control technology comes as standard on the 2021 Honda Rebel 1100. The bike is available to order right now and will be arriving in showrooms by January 2021. It is worth a mention that if you opt for the available six-speed semi-automatic dual-clutch transmission it will add to the motorcycle’s base price.
