Honda rebel 250 is heavily inspired by the bigger siblings Rebel 300 and 500 from 2016 Long Beach International Motorcycle Show
Honda has showcased the Rebel 250 at the Osaka Motorcycle Show, which is heavily inspired by its bigger sibling Honda rebel 300 and Honda Rebel 500, which were unveiled at the Long Beach International Motorcycle Show in November last year.
The Bobber-ish motorcycle comes sporting similar design like its bigger siblings. The youth focused urban cruiser takes design cue from the original 1985 Rebel. It sports a low-slung design with the chunky and muscular fuel tank sitting on the frame like a crown. The round-shaped headlamp features a chrome bezel and the Rebel 250 also gets a single-pod instrument cluster, just like its bigger siblings.
The low slung rider seat is well cushioned to give the rider a comfortable riding position, while the pillion rider too gets a cushioned split seat offering comfort. The pillion seat looks like sitting loosely on the rear mudguard. The compact LED taillight enhances the style further, while the motorcycle also comes with a machinegun muzzle like Blackened exhaust canister sporting a chrome finished tip. Overall, the Honda Rebel 250 looks very attractive and eye-catching indeed.
The Black and Grey painted Honda Rebel 250 borrowed the powertrain from Honda CBR250R. The 249 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission and it is well capable of churning out 29 PS of peak power at 9,000 rpm and 23 Nm of peak torque at 7,500 rpm.
