I got a rebel 500 already.
But before I decided for this bike, I dīliked to got informations about the bandwidht for other 500ccīs (or 600) in my country (Austria). And there are not much new bikes available, better to say, no one.
Since the 2000s, customers preferences here have changed. People like to have either very heavy bikes of all sorts, minimum 1000ccm and up, or they prefer scooters or mopeds. Not much in between. Before, there had been a lot of 500s, 650s, 750s.
The HD Street is only available in the 750 version. The Rebel 300 is not available in the whole of europe. As an alternative to the Rebel 500 you can get a Kawasaki Vulcan or an Enfield Bullet 500. Thatīs all for this types of bikes (cruiser/ bobber).
Before I decided for the Rebel, I looked around for used bikes like Yamaha Virago 550 or Honda Shadow 600. But they all seemed too old, or to much mileage on them or they had a too worn out state, or all of them.
The last competitors in my mind had been the Rebel or the Royal Enfield. Iīve talked to people a lot and had read nearly all the reports in the net about the bikes and in the end it was the Rebel and I donīt regret it.
On the contrary!
