Honda’s Rebel duo, the CMX500 and CMX1100 Rebel, and both the GL1800 Gold Wing and Gold Wing ‘Tour’ will all be available with new contemporary colours for their 2022 year model iterations.
The A2 licence-friendly CMX500 Rebel is the best-selling Custom motorcycle in Europe this year. Since its introduction in 2017, its stripped back, fat-tyred look, slim dimensions and low seat height have attracted thousands of customers across Europe, 33% of whom are female. Already available in Mat Jeans Blue Metallic, Graphite Black and Mat Axis Grey Metallic, for 2022, a brand-new Pearl Organic Green colour joins the list. Its larger sibling, the CMX1100 Rebel, also receives an update for its second sales season, with a Pearl Stallion Brown colour joining Gunmetal Black Metallic in the line-up.
The Gold Wing has been a flagship of long distance luxury and engineering prowess since its introduction as a naked 1000cc machine in 1975. For 2022, both the GL1800 Gold Wing and GL1800 Gold Wing ‘Tour’ receive striking new colours updates.
The manual GL1800 Gold Wing ‘Tour’ will be available in Gunmetal Black Metallic, finished off with a new ‘blacked out’ engine, further enhancing its road presence and character. The DCT/Airbag version of the Gold Wing ‘Tour’ will feature new vibrant Glint Wave Blue Metallic and Pearl Glare White paint options for 2022, joining the Gunmetal Black Metallic colour scheme. The DCT-only GL1800 Gold Wing itself will now be available in a smart new Mat Jeans Blue Metallic colour.
