- 2021 Honda Rebel 1100 unveiled
- Powered by 1100cc, parallel-twin engine
- Could be launched in India sometime next year
Honda has taken the wraps off the all-new Rebel 1100 for international markets.
The Rebel 1100 is armed with the Africa Twin’s 1048cc, 270-degree, parallel-twin engine. And just like the adventure-tourer, the Rebel 1100 comes with an option of a manual six-speed or a DCT (dual-clutch transmission). In terms of electronic riding aids the Honda Rebel 1100 comes with Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), three-level wheelie control, ABS, cruise control, throttle-by-wire and four ride modes- Standard, Rain, Sport along with a customisable mode.
As for styling, the Honda Rebel 1100 doesn’t stray far away from the Rebel 500’s cruiser design. In fact, the Rebel 1100 is only slightly longer and wider than the 500. It rides on an 18-inch front wheel with twin 330mm discs while the 16-inch wheel at the rear uses a 256mm disc. Suspension hardware includes telescopic forks upfront and a pair of shocks at the rear sourced from Showa.
Nonetheless, the motorcycle is offered in Metallic Black and Bordeaux Red Metallic colours and a vast list of accessorieslike a batwing fairing, saddlebags and different seats. The Honda Rebel 1100 will go up against the Harley-Davidson Iron 1200 in most markets and we can expect it to be launched in India sometime next year.
