2014 Honda Rebel 250 CMX250C on

Own the road for less than you think...

Whether you’re 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 that’s approachable enough for new riders, yet powerful enough for more experienced motorcyclists. It also features a low seat height that is both comfortable and confidence inspiring, a five-speed transmission that’s 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.

Performance, Style And Value Comes In All Sizes

Performance isn't just about power, although the Honda Rebel has it in ample supply. Handling, comfort, fit and finish, advanced technology—like our three-valve cylinder-head design—is all part of the Honda Rebel. And that's precisely why, when you're looking for a new cruiser, Honda's not only the best choice—it's the only choice.

The Rebel® remains 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. Perhaps best of all, this is just about the best way to first discover the fun and freedom you can find only on two wheels. Whether you're running errands around town or heading out of town for a riding adventure, the rugged 250 Rebel serves as a great riding partner. Colors: Black, Candy Red; Price: $4190; Availability: November

2014 Honda Rebel 250 CMX250C Key Features

Low Rider.

Everything about the Rebel is superbly crafted with the rider in mind, including the sub-27-inch seat height, allowing you to put both feet flat on the ground at stops.

Style Meets Savings.

Sure, the Rebel has classic cruiser looks, but moreover it gets phenomenal gas mileage, so you can cruise by the pumps and look good in the process.

Power When You Need It.

The proven four-stroke powerplant is perfectly suited for the 250-class Rebel, giving you smooth riding in the city and a powerful punch on the highway.





2014 Honda Rebel 250 CMX250C Features and Benefits

234cc SOHC Engine

The proven four-stroke powerplant is smooth, quiet, fuel-efficient and easy to maintain. Screw-type valve adjusters simplify engine work, while the automatic cam-chain tensioner and solid-state CD ignition are both maintenance-free.

Automatic Cam-Chain Tensioner

The automatic cam-chain tensioner requires no maintenance and helps make an already low-maintenance motorcycle even better.

Screw-Type Valve Adjusters

Screw-type valve adjusters are simple, proven, reliable and help to simplify maintenance.

Classic Styling Accents

Custom-styled, chrome-plated headlight, taillight and turn signal casings add gleaming touches to our classic Rebel package. Pullback handlebar, teardrop fuel tank, two-piece custom seat and bobbed fenders evoke the classic look of yesteryear.

Constant-Velocity Carburetor

The constant-velocity (CV) carburetor gives excellent throttle response and helps contribute to the Rebel’s awesome fuel economy.

Solid-State CD Ignition

The Rebel’s maintenance-free, solid-state CD ignition never needs adjustment and is super reliable.

Front Disc Brake

A front disc brake with twin-piston caliper provides great, predictable stopping power and is self-adjusting.

Spoke Wheels

The Rebel’s spoke-type wheels with chrome rims add a real custom look to this sharp machine.


A semi-double-cradle frame allows for a long wheelbase and extremely low seat height (26.6 inches). A hydraulic front fork with dual Syntallic bushings and dual rear shocks with five-position spring-preload adjustability deliver a smooth ride and light, agile handling.

Electric Starter
