According to news, the 2021 Honda Rebel 1100 is under development. This motorcycle was rumored a year ago, and we finally got some information. Like the other Rebel bikes, the new one will be built on the same platform.
Officially, Honda’s Rebel 1100 will get a 1082cc parallel-twin engine that will deliver outstanding performances. As you probably know, this engine is basically pulled from the Africa Twin. However, Honda hasn’t yet released official info on the power output. Basically, we managed to get some information and expect low-end torque and at least 100 horses.
2021 Honda Rebel 1000 Design
At this moment, there are a few renderings of the 2021 Honda Rebel 1100. Also, some of the patent images are available, and as we can see, the upcoming bike will ride on the same platform as the other Rebel models. At first glance, the styling of the Honda Rebel 1100 doesn’t differ at all from models in the lower class.
With that, we primarily mean on the models in the 500cc class. Of course, Honda Rebel 1100 looks more significant, and it will feature a more upright stance. Generally, patent images don’t reveal much, but one is for sure, the company will upgrade its suspension to help with the extra weight and power.
2021 Honda Rebel 1100 Engine Specifications
The upcoming 2021 Honda Rebel 1100 is a mighty motorcycle that comes with a potent engine. The forthcoming model will deploy the same powertrain and transmission as the 2021 Africa Twin model. This bike uses a 1084cc parallel twin-cylinder engine with the new Unicam control system.
Moreover, we can also expect a similar output of 75 kW (100.5 horses) and 105 Nm/74 lb-ft. Interestingly, this powertrain is paired with a six-speed manual/ six-speed automatic DCT and is very efficient. It delivers 48 MPG (20.4km/L) MT; 49 MPG (20.8km/L) DCT.
Release Date and Price
The new Honda Rebel 1100 is an excellent bike, providing more than enough power. Generally, it’s hard to beat a model that uses a 1084cc parallel twin-cylinder engine.
From some early reports, the new Honda Rebel 1100 will arrive at some point in 2021, with a starting price of around $12,000.
