The Rebel 1100 will be available in two colors – black and Bordeaux red.

While the Rebel 1100 comes with a solo seat, it can be accessorized with a pillion seat. Other accessories include a rear rack, soft saddlebags, quilted saddles in black and tan, and even a batwing fairing.

Honda is touting the Rebel 1100 as a “forward-looking motorcycle” that features “carefully-developed geometry, sport-worthy components and a best-in-class power-to-weight ratio.”

The result is a model that offers “dynamic riding, including brisk acceleration and exhilarating cornering.”
