Honda lodges patent for retro Rebel

Honda has been releasing a raft of patents o√er the past year for futuristic products and innovations, but the latest is actually a retro design based on the CMX 500 Rebel.  

While the Rebel is a cruiser style, this is a more traditional bike like the Triumph Bonneville with a round headlight, bench seat and flat fuel tank.

It retains the Rebel’s 471cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin four-stroke engine, but has a modified chassis and sub-frame.   

While this could be a handsome offering that would do well, we would prefer Honda Australia just imported the retro CB1100.

Or even better, go ahead and produce the sexy Concept CB Type II which they unveiled at the 2016 Osaka Motorcycle Show or the CB4X from this month’s EICMA show in Milan.

While Honda’s current range of motorcycle lack flare, these concepts and patents show they don’t lack for design, only commitment!
