Honda showed its entry-lever cruisers a bit of love and gave them a few updates to keep them fresh. The two Rebels receive a new and stiffer fork at the front meant to improve their handling. The rear shock is also slightly stiffer to optimize support at the back. The models receive a thicker saddle which should make them more comfortable and as well as a new instrument cluster. The headlight and turn signals have also been upgraded to LED units.
The Rebel 300 and 500’s respective 286cc single and 471cc parallel-twin engines carry over unchanged but are now teamed with an assist-slipper clutch. The 2020 Rebel 300 starts at $4,499 while the 500 lineup starts at $6,199.
