Table of Contents
2023 Honda Rebel 500 – The new Honda Rebel 500 is a bike that comes out of the world of traditional motorcycle style and escapes the boring drone boulevard. It all starts with a narrow 471cc dual cylinder engine with lots of user-friendly power.
The dark look, lightweight, and low upholstery height are winners everywhere, and features such as Honda’s slip/assist clutch to make driving more enjoyable. And where some cruiser-class bikes are only fun if you drive slowly, the Rebel 500 will happily improve.

You can even get anti-lock brakes. Plus, for 2023, the Rebel 500 has fresh new colors, and the new Rebel 500 ABS SE, comes with a selection of several accessories, such as the Black Diamond-Stitch Seat, Black Fork Boots, and Cover, and the Black Headlight Cowl.
The Rebel is a blank canvas for your self-expression. But unlike the canvases you buy in art stores, these ones aren’t boring white. Therefore, blackened engine parts, frames, and bodywork elements look good during the day and even better at night.
2023 Honda Rebel 500 Features
Forget about having to polish chrome — the blackened Rebel exhaust system blends perfectly with the overall look of the motor. And perhaps the biggest plus? Awesome sounds are essential for the driving experience.
CLASSICAL INSTRUMENT SHAPES
Another iconic element that combines traditional and new, rebel instruments take a classic form and fill them with the latest digital LCD information. Instruments include gear position indicators and fuel consumption displays.
HEADLIGHTS 4 BULBS
Another important item in motorcycle design is headlights. With Rebels, you get the best of both worlds. The lights are bright and precise, while the nacelle round shape, cast aluminum lamp mount, and glass lens give rebel characters a class-emitting.
ALL-LED LIGHTING PACKAGES
LED lighting is the place to be now. LEDs can be lighter, brighter, and require fewer lifetime replacements than incandescent lights. That’s why the Rebel 500 has an all-LED lighting package— headlights, taillights, sein lights, even license plate lights.
Matte Grey Metallic or Matte Pearl White.
OPTIONAL Honda ACCESSORIES
Rebel 500 has a large selection of factory accessories. For example, check out special seat options, backrest, saddle pockets and rear carriers, passenger seats with footpegs kits, backrests, and more.
REBEL SPECIAL 500 ABS SE
New in 2023, it offers a limited edition Rebel 500 ABS, SE version. It features some of the most popular accessories, factory installed. You get Brown Diamond-Stich Seat, Black Fork Boots, Black Upper Fork Cover, and Black Headlight Cowl — a knockout combination that takes your Rebel 500 to the next level.
STEEL REAR FENDERS
Original steel is never out of date. The Rebel has a steel rear fender that matches the tank or solid black. The paint looks good, and the steel fenders help provide a solid support for optional/removable passenger seats.
WIDTH 41mm FORK
What lies ahead is most important in style, and the Rebels knocked him off the park. Of course, the front suspension offers precise steering and a luxurious ride, but the greased 41mm fork tube gives the motor a substantial look as well.
PURIFIED REAR SUSPENSION
The rear shock of the Rebel 500 is nitrogen-filled and has a special spring level as well. Just like the front suspension, it’s about adding comfort and performance to your driving experience.
WIDE FRONT WHEEL
Rebel’s 130/90-16 wide front tires not only look good but also help provide superior handling and stopping power.

2023 Honda Rebel 500 Comfort
LOW SEAT HEIGHT
In terms of seat height, almost everyone likes the lower height. At just 27.2 inches, the rebel has one of the lowest seats in anyone’s ranks. It’s comfortable when you’re driving it, and makes it easier to set foot at a red light or in a parking lot.
Starting at £408 with a fuel-filled tank, the Rebel 500 is much more fun and friendly to drive than some of the bigger engines —perfect if you’re just starting out, or if you’re looking for a nimble bike. Its light overall weight and low center of gravity also aid performance.
Super-narrow, especially at critical tank/seat intersections, rebel makes it easier to get on and off the bike, and puts your foot on the stop. Plus, Rebel is suitable for different types of riders.
Honda Rebel 500 Techniques
SLIPPER / ASSIST CLUTCH
Developed and refined in Honda’s racing engines, the slipper/auxiliary clutch means you get a lighter clutch pull on the lever, but a sturdy locking when you release the lever and use power. This is a technology that reduces clutch power in the crossbar by about 30 percent.
Many motorcycles nowadays look good in silence, but it’s disappointing once the road is winding. Honda set a high standard for how to handle and feel all bikes and the Rebel is the perfect example.
2.9-GALLON FUEL TANK
With 2.9 gallons, rebel’s iconic fuel-tank shape is timeless, but functionally also works together with the bike’s incredible fuel efficiency to give you plenty of range.
DIE-CAST ALUMINUM REAR SUBFRAME
This is an opportunity for Honda designers to take a functional part of the motorcycle and make it look cooler. The aluminum subframe/fender mount is strong, smooth, lightweight, and provides a solid foundation for optional/removable passenger seats.
WIDE REAR TYRE
Rebel’s low, greased 16-inch rear tires give you plenty of grips, and help lower the seat height and overall bike position. And it also looks tough.
Honda Rebel 500 Performance
The two-cylinder engine is a great choice for engines like the Rebel 500. Honda’s twin engines are renowned for their versatility, and the 471cc Rebel 500 engine is one of the best. Its parallel-twin engines are narrow, which helps reduce the overall size of the bike. In addition, it offers a lot of low rpm torque, but a lot of higher-rpm performance.
CAST ALUMINUM WHEEL
The front and rear cast wheels are lightweight, practical, easy to clean and give the Rebel look that tells you that it’s not made like a retro machine.
