Both the motorcycles come with brand new trellis frame, two rear shock absorbers, 41mm telescopic front forks, big 16-inch wheels and optional ABS for better safety. The bikes feature seats that are great for shorter riders as well. According to the company, the Rebel 300 weighs 165kg and the Rebel 500 weighs only 185 kg. The main USP of these Rebel motorcycles are their lightweight nature and the easy maneuverability even in peak traffic.

According to Lee Edmunds, Manager of Motorcycle Marketing Communications at American Honda, for many riders who have grown up through the digital age, motorcycles represent a lifestyle and an attitude and is also a way of expressing their individuality. 

Throughout the years, the Honda Rebel has seen quite a bit of success as a beginner's bike in the US, that offers cruiser styling and a decent motor which will not intimidate new riders and also in the meantime provide brilliant fuel economy.
