The Rebel is one of the easy-riding bikes in Honda’s lineup. It sits low and is easy to straddle, and it’s not too heavy even for beginners. But should that stop Honda from upgrading the Rebel further to make it even more comfortable to ride? Of course not.
Check this out: the CMX1100T Rebel. This is the ultimate tourer version of the popular cruiser. What Honda has done here is take the Rebel 1100 and add an aerodynamic half fairing up front and hard panniers at the rear, making it even fitter for long rides. A new Iridium Gray Metallic finish was added to the color lineup in the process, too.
