Tuned for cruising
The engine is light and compact, contributing to the Rebel’s impressive power-to-weight ratio. Special tuning accentuates low-RPM power and torque, making the Rebel perfect for bopping around the city.
Fun to ride
The engine produces a remarkably broad torque curve for strong low-RPM performance, and peak power kicks in well below redline. This wide spread of power makes the Rebel easy and confidence-inspiring to ride in both stop-and-go situations and on the highway, while also returning impressive fuel economy ratings.
Smooth for comfort
A gear-driven counterbalance shaft helps quell engine vibration for enhanced rider comfort. It’s located so close to the crankshaft that the balancer weight passes between the two crank weights to keep the engine as compact as possible while improving mass centralization.
Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) continuously monitors several variables to help ensure the correct fuel mixture for the current riding and atmospheric conditions. The system delivers optimal performance and remarkably crisp throttle response over a wide range of operating conditions.
The Honda Assist Slipper Clutch makes shifting the six-speed gearbox even smoother, while reducing clutch lever operation effort by 30%. It also reduces tire lockup on hard braking, improving safety.
Distinctive chassis design
Combining elements of bobber and chopper styling in its iconic fuel tank design, narrow frame, raked-looking front end and black-out components, the Rebel has a raw, no-nonsense appearance that’s bound to get noticed.
Comfortable riding position
The Rebel’s seat is designed for comfort, while its low 690 mm (27.2 in) height allows most riders to easily put both feet flat on the ground at stops for added confidence. The riding position is relaxed and neutral, with gently outstretched arms matched to mid-mounted footpegs.
The front suspension offers precise steering and a plush ride, but the fat 41 mm fork tubes give the bike a substantial presence too. At the rear, the shocks are nitrogen filled, and have a special spring rate. Just like the front suspension, it’s about adding both comfort and performance to your riding experience.
Bold, oversize tires
Oversize tires (130/90-16 front; 150/80-16 rear) help to contrast the narrow frame and add to the Rebel’s strong, confident stance.
Front and rear disc brakes provide confident stopping power. Standard ABS provides exceptional braking performance and added peace of mind.
All lights are LED, and the evocative round headlight features a compact 175 mm diameter lens and die-cast aluminium mount. The ultra-thin oval taillight and licence plate light match the Rebel’s low-down stance and the mini circular LED indicators measure only 55 mm in diameter, offering great visibility in a compact package.
Customize your ride
Want to make your Rebel uniquely your own? Now there are more ways than ever to customize your ride. The accessories lineup has been boosted, with a rear rack, backrest, tank pads, saddle bags and instrument visor.
Chopper-style fuel tank looks compact, but its 11.2-litre capacity combines with the engine’s excellent fuel efficiency to help let you ride far and wide between fill-ups.
The side-mounted key location adds to the Rebel’s retro character.
2024 Honda Rebel 300 ABS Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
The Rebel is a blank canvas for your self-expression and customization. But unlike the canvas you buy at the art store, this one’s not boring white. As is, its blacked-out engine pieces, frame, and bodywork elements look great during the day and even better at night.
Forget about having to polish chrome—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.
CLASSIC INSTRUMENT SHAPE
Another iconic element combining traditional and new, the Rebel’s instruments take a classic shape and fill it with totally up-to-date digital LCD information.
Another critical item in motorcycle design is the headlight. The Rebel 300 features a headlight with a round, three-inch nacelle that gives the bike plenty of character.
ALL LED LIGHTING PACKAGE
LED lighting is where it’s at now. LEDs can be lighter, brighter, and require fewer lifetime replacements than incandescent bulbs. That’s why the Rebel 300 features an all-LED lighting package—headlight, taillight, turn signals, even the license-plate light.
Check out the bold colors you could be styling: Pearl Black, Nitric Orange.
OPTIONAL Honda ACCESSORIES
The Rebel 300 has an extensive line of accessories, ready for you to personalize your bike. For example, check out the diamond-stitched main seat, saddlebags and a carrier, passenger seat with footpegs kit, backrest, and much, much more.
STEEL REAR FENDER
The Rebel has a steel rear fender that’s color-matched to the tank. The paint looks great, and the steel fender helps provide a solid support for the optional/removable passenger seat.
It’s what’s up front that counts most in style, and the Rebel knocks it out of the park. Of course the front suspension offers precise steering and a plush ride, but the fat fork tubes give the bike a substantial presence too. We fine-tuned the fork for even better comfort and performance, and everyone loves the result.
REFINED REAR SUSPENSION
The Rebel 300’s rear shocks are nitrogen filled, and have a special spring rate too. Just like the front suspension, it’s about adding both comfort and performance to your riding experience.
WIDE FRONT AND REAR TIRES
The Rebel’s low, fat rear tire gives you plenty of grip while helping to lower the bike’s overall seat height and stance. The wide front tire not only gives the bike a great look, but it helps provide superior handling and stopping power. Plus, the wide profile perfectly complements the rear tire’s look.
LOW SEAT HEIGHT
When it comes to seat heights, almost everyone likes them lower, and the Rebel has one of the lowest seats out there. It’s comfortable when you ride, and it makes it easier to flat-foot it at stoplights or in parking lots.
One of the things you’ll notice the first time you sit on any Rebel is how narrow it is at the critical tank/seat junction. That design makes it easier to get on and off the bike, and much easier to put your feet down at stops. Plus, it helps the Rebel fits a wide variety of riders.
The Rebel 300 is a lot more fun and friendly to ride than some bigger machines—perfect if you’re just getting started, or if you’re looking for a nimble bike. The light overall weight and a low center of gravity help performance, too.
ROOMY RIDER TRIANGLE
A rider makes contact with the bike at three points: the seat, the handlebar, and the footpegs. The Rebel’s rider triangle strikes the perfect balance between laid-back cruiser and more active sport riding. You ride with a commanding presence, and the minute you sit on a Rebel in your dealership, you’ll know it.
SINGLE SEAT WITH AVAILABLE ACCESSORY PASSENGER SEAT AND FOOTPEG KIT
With the Rebel 300 you can easily set your bike up for riding solo, or take a passenger along in style: the optional passenger seat, passenger footpegs and footpeg hangers are all simple, bolt-on parts.
This is technology first developed and perfected in Honda racing machines. The slipper/assist clutch means you get a lighter clutch pull at the lever, but a solid lockup when you release the lever and apply power. It’s technology that reduces clutch effort at the bar by about 30 percent.
A lot of today’s motorcycles look great standing still, but disappoint once the road gets twisty. At Honda, we set high standards for the way all our bikes handle and feel, and the Rebel is a perfect example—we’ve paid just as much attention to the way this bike corners and handles as we have its knockout styling.
One of the key items in motorcycle design is the fuel tank. The Rebel’s iconic fuel-tank shape is timeless, but functionally it also teams up with the bike’s great fuel efficiency to give you plenty of range.
DIE-CAST ALUMINUM REAR SUBFRAME
Here’s a chance for Honda designers to take a functional part of the motorcycle and make it look extra cool. The aluminum subframe/fender mounts are strong, subtle, light, and provide a solid foundation for the optional/removable passenger seat.
At Honda, we’re famous for our engines, and we’ve given the Rebel 300 a great one. First, the facts: it’s a single-cylinder with fuel injection, double-overhead cams and a counterbalancer. Because it’s a single, it’s light and super narrow, which helps reduce the overall bike’s weight. It also offers the kind of torque and midrange power that’s well suited for all levels of riders.
CAST ALUMINUM WHEELS
Cast wheels front and rear are light, practical, easy to keep clean, and give the Rebel a look that tells you this is not built like a retro machine. The wide rims and tires add to the bike’s appearance, too.
