Rev your engines and get ready for the 2024 Honda CMX1100 Rebel – a true rebel in the world of custom bobbers. This 1100cc beast not only boasts a classic design but is loaded with cutting-edge technology, setting the stage for an epic showdown with the likes of Harley-Davidson, Indian, and the recent contender, BMW.
This latest addition to Honda’s Rebel lineup is the big brother of the family, joining the ranks of the CMX300 Rebel and CMX500 Rebel. With its unmistakable classic bobber aesthetics, featuring a beautifully sloped fuel tank and some seriously wide tires, the 2024 Honda CMX1100 Rebel is a head-turner.
The round headlight, turn signals, and instrument panel might give off a vintage vibe, but don’t be fooled – they come packed with modern LED technology, lighting up the road ahead.
Now, let’s talk colors. For 2024, you have some exciting options. The Glint Wave Blue Metallic and Iridium Gray Metallic are sure to make a statement. But if you’re looking for that extra edge, the CMX1100T Rebel offers a sleek Gunmetal Black Metallic with new bronze wheels.
Beneath that classic exterior, you’ll find a 1,084 cm³ 2-cylinder parallel engine with liquid cooling, capable of producing a whopping 85.8 HP at 7,000 rpm and 10.0 kgfm (100Nm) of torque at 4,750 rpm. And, it’s got an electronic throttle ‘Throttle By Wire’ (TBW) for that precise control you need, plus a 6-speed gearbox (with the option for a Dual Clutch Transmission).
The chassis is built on a classic tubular steel frame, giving you a comfortable seat height of just 700mm. The 43mm front suspension and the floating 330mm front brake disc with a monobloc radial mounting four-piston caliper ensure you’re in full control.
Don’t forget the stylish cast aluminum wheels with 5 sporty ‘Y’ spokes and those wide tires – 180/65-16 at the rear and 130/70-18 at the front – ensuring a smooth ride and stability on the road.
But the technology doesn’t stop at the surface. The 2024 Honda CMX1100 Rebel boasts an electronic accelerator, ‘Honda Selectable Torque Control’ (HSTC) for traction and torque control, and even upright control (Wheelie Control). You’ll also have your pick of riding modes: Standard, Rain, Sport, and a user-defined option.
And if you’re feeling extra adventurous, there’s an automated double clutch DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) gearbox available, complete with manual changes through triggers on the left handle.
So, there you have it, the 2024 Honda CMX1100 Rebel – a rebel with a classic soul and a technological heart. It’s the custom bobber you’ve been waiting for, with a style that’s all its own and performance to match.
