When we launched our Rebel 300 a couple of years ago; riders everywhere loved the way it combines a fresh; new look with timeless features like a low seat height; light weight; narrow 286cc single-cylinder engine and user-friendly powerband. And for 2020 we kept all those best parts; but have given the Rebel 300 some tasty 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. In short; this great bike is better than ever. Now that’s a revolution we can all get behind.

The Rebel is a blank canvas for your self expression and customization. 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.
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
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.
Weighing just 364 pounds with a full tank of fuel; the Rebel 300 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
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.
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
Hondas are famous for their engines; and we’ve given the Rebel 300 a great one. First; the facts: it’s a single-cylinder with fuel injection; double-overhead cams and a counterbalancer. Because it’s a single; it’s light and super narrow; which helps reduce the overall bike’s weight. It also offers the kind of torque and midrange power that’s well suited for all levels of riders.
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 bikes appearance; too.
