The development of the Rebel began in North America, with an approach aimed at awakening the imagination of a younger generation of motorcyclists in a different way than traditional cruiser motorcycles. Propelled by a 471cc parallel twin-cylinder engine, with a strong low-speed torque and smooth, linear power delivery. It is also narrow, with the seat at low height, and therefore easy to handle at low speed. The riding position is relaxed and neutral, with the arms slightly stretched in harmony with the footrests anchored in a middle position.

The tubular steel frame of the Rebel draws clean and current lines in a bare ‘bobber’ style and with wide tires. With a ‘blacked out’ look, dark to the maximum, and with a minimum of paint, you can also pass from car to passenger with two screws.

For 2020, the Rebel offers more comfort and functionality thanks to the revised seat and suspension settings, as well as a gear indicator. Both the headlamp and the rear light are new, and the incorporation of LED turn signals provide full LED lighting.
