  • Boon Siew Honda has introduced two new colours to the range.


The 2018 Honda Rebel 500 lightweight cruiser gets new colours, as announced by Boon Siew Honda.

The Rebel 500 made its debut in Malaysia in 2017. Many have taken a liking to it since then. Priced from just RM 32,399.00, it represents a great value for money.

It is a good-looking bike by any account. Styled like a bobber with a wide front wheel, owners can look forward to customizing it to their hearts’ content. The 471cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-Twin engine provides punchy torque yet linear in its response.

Being small in size also means the bike is accessible to a wide variety of riders. The Rebel 500 features a seat height of only 690mm and a kerb weight of just 191 kg.

Front and rear disc brakes take care of braking duties. The rear Showa shocks are adjustable for two-step preload.

Boon Siew Honda have added new colours to the 2018 Honda Rebel 500 range. The new colours are Matt Axis Grey and Pearl Cadet Grey. The existing Graphite Black and Millennium Red are retained.

The new colours are available from December 2018 onwards at all Honda Big Wing dealers.
