Feel free

Make your mark on it.

The CMX500 Rebel is all about freedom for all motorcyclists, particularly A2 licence holders. With a strong, liquid-cooled, parallel twin-cylinder engine cradled in low chassis, it’s a stunning looking bike – a blank canvas – and one that’s ready for whatever your imagination has in store for it.

An easy ride

The Rebel takes a different road.

Powered by the proven parallel twin-cylinder engine, the response is friendly, smooth and linear – ideal if your stepping up from a smaller bike. The riding position is relaxed as you sit, arms outstretched, into the low seat height, ready for the highway; it’s comfortable and easy to manage at low speeds too.

Slim enough to nip through town traffic with a low seat height for comfort and sure-footed control.

Moving away from the high rpm-focused performance of the CBR500R, a revised PGM-FI fuel injection map has given the Rebel’s engine a totally different character. It has beefy, bottom-end output with more muscular torque of 43.2Nm@ 6,000rpm and – combined with peak power of 34kW @ 8,500rpm – provides satisfying acceleration and strong cruising performance.

Sounding right

The 2-1 exhaust is designed with two resonator chambers along with a 120mm diameter ‘shotgun’ style muffler. The sound produced has a deep- pulse thanks to the 180° phased firing order. Take it through the 6-speed gearbox and you’ll be surprised at how strong this motor feels.

Take a ride and a taste of freedom – the Rebel way.

Free to ride where you want when you want. The CMX500 Rebel bridges the gap nicely between a smaller machine and a larger capacity motorcycle.
