The CMX1100T Rebel - a new Touring version loaded with an aerodynamic half-fairing and hard cases headlines the Honda CMX1100 Rebel range. Offering to relax and excite in equal measure, the standard edition also gains a new colour for 23YM.
As ever, serious performance is on tap from the 1,084cc parallel twin-cylinder engine, plus meaty character and evocative exhaust note. Honda Selectable Torque Control with integrated Wheelie Control, Cruise Control and 3 default riding modes working through Throttle by Wire make up a comprehensive package of supporting electronics. High-quality running gear includes 43mm cartridge-style front forks, ‘piggyback’ rear shock absorbers and four-piston, radial-mount front brake caliper. All lighting is LED, with negative LCD instrument display. A 6-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) option is also available.
Prices from £10,449.00 | DCT £11,349.00
The CMX1100 Rebel has a dual personality. It’s been designed for a leisurely laidback cruise, but also to offer an exciting riding experience when a twisty road presents itself. Riders moving up from smaller bikes will appreciate the manageable dimensions and weight (seat height is a mere 700mm), while more experienced riders will find instant, accessible enjoyment from the chassis’ handling potential, with its stiff tubular steel frame, quality naked bike-spec suspension and high-powered braking.
All-comers will love the character and performance of the 1,084cc parallel twin-cylinder engine (as used by the CRF1100L Africa Twin), which has been re-tuned for super-strong bottom and mid-range punch and character, plus an evocative, enhanced exhaust note.
Throttle By Wire management brings with it sophisticated rider aids: there are 3 default riding modes with a cluster of different parameters to suit riding conditions or rider mood, including engine power delivery, engine braking, the level of Honda Selectable Torque Control (with integrated Wheelie Control), and the shift schedule of the optional Dual Clutch Transmission technology. Cruise control comes as standard.
As a 21st century bobber, the big Rebel’s stripped-back style speaks volumes with its minimalism. Steel mudguards front and rear sit atop fat tyres; the circular headlight mixes old school looks with new school LED bulbs and mirrors the round, negative LCD instrument display. For modern day convenience, there’s a USB-C charger in the under-seat storage space.
For 23YM, the family is joined by a dedicated Touring version, the CMX1100T Rebel. Striking in Gunmetal Black Metallic, it features a broad aerodynamic half fairing and hard panniers for extended comfort and long-distance adventures.
New for 23YM, the CMX1100T Rebel, finished in Gunmetal Black Metallic, is designed for the rider that wants all the potential the standard bike offers, but also the ability to cover larger distances with in-built comfort and useful carrying capacity. The fork-mounted half-fairing, available only for the CMX1100T Rebel, is both stylishly evocative and – with its bespoke stubby screen – offers good wind deflection. Brand new hard rear panniers, with hinged top lids, blend in perfectly and offer a full 35 litres carrying capacity (right 16L, left 19L) - an additional 11 litres compared to the nylon accessory saddle bags.
A styling statement in itself, the Rebel’s tubular steel frame is based around the raw and simple design of its sibling and features the same defined ‘theme’ line running diagonally front to back, with the fuel tank playing its part sat above the 35mm diameter main tubes which, naturally, are larger than the CMX500 Rebel’s. The 50.8mm diameter swingarm, too has an ‘engineered’ look to match.

Wheelbase is 1,520mm; the forks have a 30° angle for cruiser style, 2° offset from the 28° ‘rake’ line itself; trail is 110mm. This combination delivers the right look, but also straight-line stability and accurate, easy handling. Wet weight is set at 223kg with manual transmission, and 233kg for the DCT-equipped option. The CMX1100T Rebel weighs in at 238kg manual and 248kg in DCT form.
