A chopped ’bobber’ styled motorcycle that links authentic, traditional looks with modern technology.
Make your mark on it.
The CMX500 Rebel is all about freedom for all motorcyclists, particularly A2 licence holders. With a strong, liquid-cooled, parallel twin-cylinder engine cradled in low chassis, it’s a stunning looking bike – a blank canvas – and one that’s ready for whatever your imagination has in store for it.
AN EASY RIDE
The Rebel takes a different road.
Powered by the proven parallel twin-cylinder engine, the response is friendly, smooth and linear – ideal if your stepping up from a smaller bike. The riding position is relaxed as you sit, arms outstretched, into the low seat height, ready for the highway; it’s comfortable and easy to manage at low speeds too.
The ‘one button’ speedo is a compact 100mm dial with negative LCD display and blue backlight; it’s striking and effective.
Like many traditional machines, the ignition is housed below the left side of the fuel tank.
Set high up front, evocative of an earlier era, the round headlight features a 135mm diameter glass lens. The whole assembly is fixed with a die-cast aluminium mount.
Stop on sight
The fat ‘bobber’ style rims and rubber are matched nicely with a twin piston caliper up front. The rear is a single piston type and the two-channel system ABS brakes, come as standard.
A smoother ride
The 41mm front fork stanchions are set wide apart for sure footed stability, comfort and style. The 45mm diameter, tubular steel swingarm works twin Showa shock absorbers that feature two step preload settings.
A natural ride
Footpegs are mid mounted, for a relaxed riding position. They combine well with the Rebel’s slim proportion and low seat height for superior comfort – reducing fatigue on a longer journey.
Placing your feet firmly on the ground instills more confidence when you’re on and off the footpegs in town traffic.
