2009 Honda CMX250C Rebel 250

Who says you need a big-bore machine to appreciate the joys of motorcycling? Not a Honda CMX250C Rebel rider, that’s for sure. A user-friendly combination of light weight and comfortable size has made the CMX250C Rebel an enduring favourite among riders looking for an easy-to-handle cruiser. The good stuff begins with a high-output twin-cylinder engine that runs more smoothly than a single, yet is thrifty on gas and easy to maintain. A front disc brake brings you to a halt quickly, and that’s when you’ll notice how easy it is to put your feet flat on the ground, thanks to a low seat height.

This is a bike that instills confidence on every ride.

Rebel riders agree, this bike makes you look good no matter how long you’ve been riding. It’s an entry-level bike, sure, but it boasts big-bike styling with its timeless cruiser looks and nifty chrome highlights. Its reliable 234cc four-stroke twin delivers smooth power, and its five-speed transmission is a no-brainer to shift. Why pay more for a lesser bike? The Rebel’s sticker price is as unbelievable as its outstanding fuel economy—proof positive it’s a Honda.
