2017 Honda Rebel 500 Review

Here's a review from an owner in Thailand. His trim piece has already fallen off as some have mentioned here before. But he lists off things he likes and doesn't like. You'll probably have to turn up your speakers or earphones as the volume is pretty low.

All they did to fix that trim piece falling off was put back another set of double-tape.

It essentially starts at 8:20, and unfortunately he has some music playing whilst he's riding the bike which kinda bothered me.

One thing he doesn't like is the big brake light on the back.. that's definitely something I'll be changing as soon as I get mine.

I found a couple of reviews that have popped up stateside. One of them won't have the full review up until Monday.

Apparently whatever event in Venice the Canada Moto guy is at, is also being written about here.

I like how one of them pointed out that the Rebel looks stripped down because Honda wants us to customize it ourselves. Which leaves the question of factory accessories and how much of that will be offered by Honda.

The Canada Moto Guide link above is dead, now that they've written the article (posted yesterday):

https://canadamotoguide.com/2017/04/...e-honda-rebel/

And here's another review from CycleWorld:

2017 Honda Rebel 300 & Rebel 500 Cruiser First Ride Review | Cycle World

Surprising that a few reviews so far have mentioned a fairly long (and non-adjustable) reach for the clutch lever.

Talk about release of the reviews. I got a lot of info to start sifting through. Thankfully, the clutch levers can be changed out so that shouldn't be too much to worry about right?

I'll just wait and see how long the reach actually is when I get the chance.

One guy mentioned that he wears an XL glove, but that's more an indication of hand width, not finger reach. Maybe he's got really wide hands, but short stubby fingers lol.

Canadian review mentioned that the 500 comes automatically with a passenger seat? Interesting. I was thinking I had to pay for this extra..

I am in the same boat as you. I actually had 200 bucks set a side just for the passenger set up. I really hope he is correct, and that it is not just a Canada option.
