  • Rebel Yell !!!!!

    Oct 7, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Considered by many motorcycle magazines as the "best entry level cruiser"
    Cons: Height of a rider may become a problem for some

    Summary: I was fortunate to test drive this bike and the Suzuki GZ250 during the MSF safety class. This bike may be a bit more crampt than the GZ250, but not by much. One motorcycle magazine gave this bike the honor of "Best entry level cruiser" If you look ... read more

  • If you drove a Civic, well consider this the Civic of motorcycles.

    Jul 18, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Smooth and delightfully peppy engine (when new), easy to ride and easy to use.
    Cons: Some minority problems, breathless engine at times, easy to forget fuel mileage.

    Summary: If you drove a Civic as a first time driver, then a Honda Rebel is just about the same way for a beginning rider. Riding a Rebel is like riding a bicycle, but with a strikingly smooth and mildly torquey 234cc Parallel Twin SOHC 2 valve p.c. engine. Think ... read more

  • Most reliable motorcycle!! Love it!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Highly recommended 4 reliability, good looks, easy maintenance. Fun! and it's lots of fun!!!
    Cons: Small Bike, 72 mph max, lots of plastic parts

    Summary: This Bike is just my size! I've been riding my 2004 Honda Rebel since May 2004, when I first purchased it. (I can proudly say that I paid all of the $3000.00 plus taxes in cash, which is always better than any financing plan the Honda dealer or the bank ... read more

  • 2006 Honda Rebel - Great Value, Great Bike

    Nov 12, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Value, Very Good Handling, Nice Styling
    Cons: Not a good choice for tall riders, Some riders may want more power.

    Summary: Overview: My quest for an inexpensive, fuel efficient commuter vehicle began by looking at scooters. Although my commute is primary surface streets, I did need a vehicle capable of traveling the freeways occasionally. After looking at scooters capable ... read more

  • Easy To Ride, Cheap, Reliable

    Jun 22, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fuel Economy, Reliable, Put Together Well
    Cons: Can't drive it 120 mph (but why do you want to with a 250cc engine?)

    Summary: I bought my 2002 Rebel as a used motorcycle a month ago from a Honda dealer. It has proven to be a very reliable bike. I'm 24 now and haven't ridden a motorcycle since I was 16. I heard all of the internet rumors about how it was dangerous because it ... read more

  • Simple, efficient, and powerful enough for commuting

    Apr 20, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Even and smooth acceleration, gas mileage, resell values, relatively small and light in size.
    Cons: the design in the gear selection requires frequent shifting in stop-and-go commuting.

    Summary: This is actually a review for a 2004 model. I have just passed the MSF safety class and bought a used Rebel with 700 mi for practice. I would like to share my experience from a beginner’s point of view. I must admit that the only other motorcycle ... read more

  • Nice scooter upgrade

    Apr 27, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Not too expensive, easy to handle and to learn with.
    Cons: Feels definitely underpowered for driving at highway speeds comfortably.

    Summary: Please find at the end an update to this review. Apr-28-2004 After driving a scooter many years ago I took the MSF class last fall and I used the Suzuki 250 the first day and the Honda Rebel the second day. I like it so after a few months I got ... read more

  • Beware the emission control system.

    Mar 14, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good handling, looks cool
    Cons: Emission control system, under-powered. Manual choke.

    Summary: A nice looking shiny bike which is easy to handle. The seat is low and with the forward peg position and high handlebars gives a sit up arms out riding position. The bike is really quite heavy for a 250cc and strains a bit going up ... read more

  • Not looking back

    Jan 24, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: great gas mileage, affordable, reliable, good performance, excellent for women and the vertically challenged
    Cons: not for the power hungry, can be uncomfortable for tall people

    Summary: never thought I would ever ride a motorcycle, even less own one and actually enjoy it! I upgraded from a 50cc scooter to a 250 cc Honda Rebel 2002 and I'm not looking back. I finally have the ability to keep up with traffic, get on the ... read more

  • GREAT BIKE

    Nov 8, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap, EASY to ride, nice looks and oh yeah... CHEAP
    Cons: Screams at Speed

    Summary: I purchased my little Rebel not too long ago amidst warnings that I would find it underpowered and too small for me. I'm 5'9" and I feel very comfortable on it, not at all cramped as I was led to believe. The seat is comfortable and the handle bars are ... read more

  • Not great for tall people on long rides

    Aug 22, 2007 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: fuel economy, fun, nice looking, easy to operate
    Cons: small, slow acceleration

    Summary: I recently bought a used 2004 rebel. I'm using it to commute 10 miles to work and it is great as a short distance commuter. I'm 6 feet tall and when I rode to my parents place (about 30 miles) the other day I ended up really cramped in my hips. I sat ... read more

  • over priced scooter

    Rated Show
    Pros: Looks cute. Ok for around town.
    Cons: DANGEROUS MACHINE. TOO slow.

    Summary: If you want a bike to toodle around town on --this is the bike. Anything else forget it. I had my Rebel for a little over a year and felt it to be a real road hazard. There is NO get-up-and-go when you really need it and it whines like a baby when you ... read more
