– 2003 Honda CMX250C Rebel
The Rebel may be our smallest cruiser, but just because it doesn’t weigh 350 kilograms doesn’t make it any less of a Honda.
Where many econocruisers make do with a single-cylinder powerplant, the Rebel boasts a high performance twin. Light and nimble, the Rebel is the ideal entry-level cruiser for anyone new or returning to the sport. The seat height is an extremely low 675mm, and the single front disc brake provides exemplary stopping power while the 234cc parallel twin is powerful enough to keep up with the big boys. Above all, the Rebel is affordable, dependable and built with the same legendary care as our most expensive cruisers.
