You might say this bike is the ultimate balance of performance and style. Designed for riders of all skill levels, it’s equipped with a sporty engine and has an optimal lean angle so it rides great. It also looks terrific with its blacked-out touches, compact frame and low-slung seat. And this year, it’s available in a stunning Candy Lightning Blue. As perfect as the Rebel 300 seems stock, it’s going to be hard to resist making a few tweaks. We say go for it.
Hondas are famous for their engines, and we’ve given the Rebel 300 a great one. First, the facts: it’s a single-cylinder with fuel injection, double-overhead cams and a counterbalancer. Because it’s a single, it’s light and super narrow, which helps reduce overall bike’s weight. It also offers the kind of torque and midrange power that’s well suited for all levels of riders.
The Rebel is a blank canvas for your self expression. But unlike the canvas you buy at the art store, this one’s not boring white. As is, its black-out engine pieces, frame, and bodywork elements look great during the day and even better at night.
When it comes to seat heights, almost everyone likes them lower. At just 27.2 inches, the Rebel has one of the lowest seats in anyone’s lineup. It’s comfortable when you ride, and it makes it easier to flat-foot it at stoplights or in parking lots.
A lot of today’s motorcycles look great standing still, but disappoint once the road gets twisty. At Honda, we set high standards for the way all our bikes handle and feel, and the Rebel is a perfect example—we’ve paid just as much attention to the way this bike corners and handles as we have its knockout styling.
