2020 Honda® Rebel 500 ABSRIDE YOUR OWN RIDE
When the Honda Rebel 500 debuted just a few years ago, riders everywhere loved the way it combined a fresh, blacked-out look with timeless features like a low seat height, light weight, narrow 471cc parallel-twin engine and user-friendly powerband. And for 2020 we kept all those best parts, but have given the Rebel 500 some impressive upgrades, like a LED lighting package (headlight, taillight, turn signals and more), new instruments, a slipper/assist clutch that lightens clutch pull, new suspension, and a whole bunch of new Honda accessories available too. So yeah, a great bike got even better. Now more than ever, express yourself on a Rebel!
Features may include:STYLE
- BLACKED-OUT STYLE
The Rebel is a blank canvas for your self expression. But unlike the canvas you buy at the art store, this one’s not boring white. As is, its blacked-out engine pieces, frame, and bodywork elements look great during the day and even better at night.
- BLACKED-OUT MUFFLER
Forget about having to polish chrome—the Rebel’s blacked-out exhaust system blends perfectly with the bike’s overall look. And maybe the biggest plus? The awesome sound that's so important to the riding experience.COMFORT
- LOW SEAT HEIGHT
When it comes to seat heights, almost everyone likes them lower. At just 27.2 inches, the Rebel has one of the lowest seats in anyone’s lineup. It’s comfortable when you ride, and it makes it easier to flat-foot it at stoplights or in parking lots.
- LIGHT WEIGHT
Weighing just 408 pounds (414 pounds for the ABS model) with a full tank of fuel, the Rebel 500 is a lot more fun and friendly to ride than some bigger machines—perfect if you’re just getting started, or if you’re looking for a nimble bike. The light overall weight and a low center of gravity help performance, too.ENGINEERING
- SLIPPER/ASSIST CLUTCH
New for 2020, this is technology first developed and perfected in Honda’s racing machines. The slipper/assist clutch means you get a lighter clutch pull at the lever, but a solid lockup when you release the lever and apply power. It’s technology that reduces clutch effort at the bar by about 30 percent.
- SUPERIOR HANDLING
A lot of today’s motorcycles look great standing still, but disappoint once the road gets twisty. At Honda, we set high standards for the way all our bikes handle and feel, and the Rebel is a perfect example—we’ve paid just as much attention to the way this bike corners and handles as we have its knockout styling.PERFORMANCE
- SPORTY ENGINE
Twin-cylinder engines are a great choice for a machine like the Rebel 500. Honda twins are famous for their versatility, and the 471cc Rebel 500’s engine is one of our best ever. The parallel-twin engine is narrow, which helps reduce overall bike size. Plus it offers lots of low-rpm torque, but plenty of higher-rpm performance.
- CAST ALUMINUM WHEELS
Cast wheels front and rear are light, practical, easy to keep clean, and give the Rebel a look that tells you this is not built like a retro machine. The wide rims and tires add to the bike's appearance, too.
