2012 Honda Rebel 250 CMX250C Review
Own the road for less than you think.
For years and years, the Rebel has remained a favorite among entry-level street riders-and for good reason. Its stylish good looks maintain an enduring appeal, it's comfortable, light in weight and easy to maneuver, and its durability has grown to legendary proportions. Whether you're running errands around town or heading out of town for a riding adventure, the tough Rebel serves as a great riding partner.
Whether youre looking for classic cruiser styling, a fuel-efficient
commuter, or flat-out fun, all roads lead to the Rebel. It boasts a 234cc
four-stroke engine thats approachable enough for new riders, yet powerful
enough for more experienced motorcyclists. A low seat height that is both
comfortable and confidence inspiring. A five-speed transmission thats
pretty much foolproof. And an electric starter that gets you going with the
push of a button. Plus, you get the kind of reliability and low maintenance
Honda is known for all at a shockingly low price. No wonder the Rebel
has long been one of our best selling bikes.
