Beginner Bikes – Honda Rebel

2012 Honda Rebel

Unless you’re fresh out of the rider training course, it’s easy to forget about the Honda Rebel, but this little Honda stalwart was consistently the least expensive beginner bike we found during our search, no doubt in part to its modest 234cc engine.

The Rebel’s entirely unassuming presence and ride characteristics give riders and insurance companies alike good reason not to feel in danger. If the cruiser style is not for you, the trio in our recent beginner bike shootout: Honda’s CBR250R, Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Hyosung GT250R are all only marginally more costly than the Rebel, and within a few bucks of each other, depending on provider.
