Japanese motorcycle manufacturer Honda recently showcased the updated 2019 Rebel 300 cruiser motorcycle at the 2019 Bangkok Motor Show. The upgraded 2019 Honda rebel gets a few upgrades including three new clour options - Pearl Cadet Grey, Candy Energy Orange and Matte Axis Grey Metallic along with a new ABS module.
The launch of the 2019 Honda Rebel 300 cruiser motorcycle in Thailand comes at a time when the brand is facing increased competition from Royal Enfield. The Indian motorcycle brand has built a new assembly plant in Thailand to help bring down the prices of its entry-level cruisers.
The launch of the new Honda Rebel 300 shows us what the cruiser motorcycle could look like if Honda does bring it to India. Considering that the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer has patented the Rebel 300 name in India, the chances of the Rebel 300 coming to India do look quite strong.
The Honda Rebel 300 is powered by a 286cc, liquid cooled, single cylinder engine. The fuel-injected DOHC engine kicks out 26.9bhp and 27Nm of torque, which is sent to the rear wheel via a 6-speed gearbox and chain drive. The Honda Rebel 300 weighs in at 165 kilogrammes.
The Honda Rebel's suspension setup features 41mm conventional forks up with 121mm of travel and twin shock absorbers at the rear with 5 steps preload and 96mm of travel. Braking duties on the Honda Rebel 300 are handled by a single 296mm disc up front with twin-piston callipers. The rear brake unit is a 240mm disc with a single piston calliper. The brakes of the 2019 Honda Rebel 300 are aided by ABS. The Rebel 300 sits on 16-inch alloy wheels that are wrapped in 130/60 (front) and 150/80 (rear) tyres.
In terms of design, the 2019 Honda Rebel 300 hasn't changed much. The pocket cruiser motorcycle features a circular headlamp along with a heavily raked front end. The tear drop shaped fuel tank gives the Rebel a rather distinct look and it drops on the rather low rider's seat which sits just 691mm off the ground. The front set footpegs add to the comfotable and forward seating position of the bike while the tiny pillion rider's seat is placed on top of the rear fender and looks to be more of an afterthought than anything else.
