1084cc TWIN-CYLINDER ENGINE
The Rebel 1100 sports an engine that redefines what a modern cruiser can and should be. The parallel-twin design is narrow and delivers torque everywhere from idle to redline. Proven in our Africa Twin, you’ll have plenty of power grunt down low, but the Rebel 1100 cruises easy and revs like nothing else in the class.
UNICAM ENGINE DESIGN
Honda’s exclusive Unicam® engine design helps us give the Rebel 1100 a compact cylinder head for optimal engine placement. But the engine also benefits from superior performance, thanks to the entire cylinder-head layout. It’s the best of both worlds!
With a bike like the Rebel 1100, you’re going to want to get out and ride. That’s why we’ve equipped it with cruise control, just like our Gold Wings. Want to kick back and cruise on the open road all weekend long? No problem!
THROTTLE BY WIRE
Our throttle-by-wire system greatly expands the Rebel 1100’s versatility. First, you get four levels of Honda Selectable Torque Control. Second, you can choose from four power delivery modes: Standard, Rain, Sport, and a fourth that’s user-programmable. First used on our World-Champion RC213V MotoGP bikes, throttle-by-wire is an excellent example of how Honda’s technology works for you.
Our family of Rebels are blank canvases for your self expression. But unlike the canvas you buy at the art store, they’re not boring white. As is, its blacked-out engine pieces, frame, fork and bodywork elements look great during the day and even better at night. We even black-plated the final-drive chain!
Forget about having to polish chrome or exhaust pipes that turn—the Rebel’s blacked-out exhaust system blends perfectly with the bike’s overall look. And maybe the biggest plus? The awesome sound that's so important to the riding experience.
LOW SEAT HEIGHT
When it comes to cruisers and seat heights, almost everyone likes them lower. At just 27.5 inches, the Rebel 1100 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.
LIGHT OVERALL WEIGHT
Weighing just 487 pounds with a full tank of fuel (manual transmission model), the Rebel 1100 is close to 80 pounds lighter than some of its competition. That makes it easier to handle and a lot more fun and friendly to ride than some heavier machines. The light overall weight and a low center of gravity help performance, too.
