Honda Rebel 250cc

submitted by Chris S.

This was not my first choice of a motorcycle. I would've preferred something with more oomph. I found it top heavy for its size and I tip toe it. The combination made me uneasy. I share this bike with my husband (we ride at different times - not 2 up) who is my height with a 28 inch inseam. He does not tip toe it (amazing what 3 inches can do).

Luckily it is not a heavy bike (only 305 lbs) so I've only dropped it once -when I forgot to put the kickstand down while getting OFF the bike. Just a "duh" moment. It has been a good learning bike and would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn to ride but is uneasy about big bikes. If you are like me and are not concerned with the size of the motor I'd recommend a slightly more powerful bike to start(500-600cc).

I've taken the Rebel to 3 states and by this weekend(Oct03) will be able to add a fourth. My only real major complaint is that top speed without altering the bike in anyway is 70 mph on its on (though drafting off a big rig while going down hill I have reached 85mph). This can be problematic if riding on the interstate system in the United States were most other automobiles average 75-80 mph.

Thanks to Chris for submitting this personal review. Chris says, "2003 Honda Rebel 250 (Lil' Boy Blue) I am 5'4" with a 25 inch inseam (yep you read that right - 25 inches!) Most ladies my height average out at a 30-28 inch inseam, but I am short with a long torso. I ride with the Rumble Sisters and the Southern Cruisers"
