Honda Rebel 1100 has been launched in Thailand after making its international debut in 2020. The model has launched first in the Thai market of South East Asia and will hit the markets of Indonesia and the Philippines later in the year.
The manual version of the brand’s new cruiser costs Rs.399,000 Baht (approx. Rs.9.30 lakh) and the DCT automatic version costs Rs. 429,000 Baht (approx. Rs.10 lakh). The model is equipped with a large motor borrowed from the Africa Twin in the company’s line-up and is based on the already-on-sale Rebel 500.
Although the Honda Rebel 1100 has a resemblance with the Rebel 500, it is slightly longer and wider. The Rebel 1100 features an 18-inch wheel having a 130 section tyre at the front and a 16-inch wheel having a 180 section tyre at the rear. The Honda Rebel 1100 is supported by dual-channel ABS which have radial-mounted discs at either end of the braking set-up. The suspension set-up at the front features telescopic forks and twin shocks at the rear.
The Honda Rebel 1100 is powered by a Euro 5 compliant 1048cc, parallel-twin engine with a 270-degree crank. The cruiser’s motor produces a maximum power of 100 bhp after re-tuning and is mated to a 6-speed manual and dual-clutch transmission. Different camshaft profiles are featured for each cylinder of the mill. The kerb weight of the Rebel 1100 is 220 kg on the manual while it rises to 230 kg on the automatic.
The Honda Rebel 1100 has four riding modes: Standard, Rain, Sport and a customisable option. Apart from this, the motorcycle features Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), 3-level wheelie control, cruise control and much more.
The company has a goal of expanding its Big Wing network globally, so it is just a matter of time before it launches the two-wheelers in the Indian market. Experts believe that the Honda Rebel 1100 will soon launch in India.
