Honda ’s new 2021 Rebel 1100 is going to change the way you think about cruisers. Sure, it has the low seat height, twin-cylinder engine and relaxed riding position Plus, since the Rebel 1100 out performs just about any cruiser, we didn’t fall into the trap of just making it look like grandpa’s sled either.

2021 Honda Rebel 1100 . We were really impressed with the 2020 Rebel 500, which turned out to be surprisingly sporty and more fun to ride than we grizzled veterans expected. Honda claims more of the same for the 1100 , including a bank angle of 35-degrees via a cartridge-type 43 mm fork, twin

The Honda Rebel family grows by one in 2021, with the Rebel 1100 joining the ranks as a full-size complement to its 500cc (read about it in the 2020 Honda Rebel 500 ABS MC Commute Review) and 300cc siblings.

The Rebel has long been known as the low-displacement, affordable, easy-to-ride bike that makes a great starter machine for new riders. Even after the heavy model revision three years ago, the Rebel remained perfectly suited to new (or newer) riders. Even so, it was clear that Honda had ambitions to reimagine its cruiser line more broadly.

They weren’t smaller, raked-out versions of more traditionally styled cruisers or lightly altered versions of the previous Rebel design. They were Honda’s interpretation of what this new breed of rider wants from a relaxed, affordable, easy-to-ride motorcycle.

The Rebel 1100 is powered by a 1,084cc Unicam parallel-twin engine derived from the mill used in the Africa Twin. It features a 270-degree crank and different camshaft profiles for each cylinder.

Designed with World Superbike competition in mind, the Triple-R is positioned as a premium, competition-spec motorcycle slotting in above the standard CBR1000RR.
