Honda has unveiled its new Rebel 1100 cruiser motorcycle for the global markets. The new (2021) Honda Rebel 1100 comes packed with a host of features and equipment, a powerful engine based on the Africa Twin and a design similar to its lower displacement siblings in the cruiser lineup.
Talking about the design, the new Rebel 1100 will carry forward the same styling as the other models in the lineup. This includes the Rebel 500 and the Rebel 300. The new range-topping Rebel 1100 features the same sculpted fuel tank, trellis frame, single-seat and rear fender.
The motorcycle also features circular LED headlamps, LED taillights and a single-pod digital instrument cluster. The motorcycle offers a comfortable riding ergonomics as well, with forward-set footpegs, a raised handlebar and a low seat height of just 698mm.
The engine on the Honda Rebel 1100 comes in the form of a 1084cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled unit based on Honda's flagship Africa Twin adventure-tourer offering. However, Honda has tuned the engine to better match the cruiser characteristics.
The company has also used different camshaft profiles and ignition timings for both cylinders, giving the motorcycle a wide torque band, along with plenty of grunts available from lower rpm itself.
The engine is said to produce around 100bhp and will come mated to either a six-speed manual or a DCT automatic transmission unit (borrowed from the Africa Twin). However, the DCT-equipped cruiser will be 10kilograms heavier than the standard model, which tips the scale at 220kg.
In terms of electronic rider aid, the Honda Rebel 1100 features a throttle-by-wire, cruise control, wheelie control, four-levels of traction control, Honda Selectable Torque Control and four riding modes: Standard, Rain, Sport and User-Programmable (Individual).
The motorcycle also comes with 43mm inverted forks at the front and dual-shock absorbers at the rear. Braking is handled by a single 330mm disc up front and a 256mm disc at the rear, supported by dual-channel ABS as standard. The motorcycle further rides on 18-inch and 16-inch wheels at the front and rear, respectively.
Thoughts On The Honda Rebel 1100 Global Unveil
There is no official word on Honda bringing in the Rebel 1100 to the Indian markets anytime soon. If the Honda Rebel 1100 does enter the Indian market, it will rival Indian Motorcycle range and will retail via the brand's BigWing premium dealership network.
