Be interesting to see if there is a version with their 790cc engine - like we have a 300 and a 500.

Honestly my initial reaction is...kind of a let down. If I was an experienced rider looking for a new bike and comparing the 500 to an 1100 it would be a no brainer. But as the happy owner of a new 2020 500 ABS, I'm not sure it looks like enough of a difference for me to want to make an upgrade. Still can't wait to test ride one though.

I want the speedo, shocks and seat for my wife's 500 - and what is it with Honda and butt-ugly exhaust? Staggered duals would transform it. That muffler looks like luggage

As a 2019 Rebel 500 owner, I’m looking forward to trading in for the 2021 Rebel 1100 (Manual). Ticks all my boxes for features.

1100 cc's as opposed to 500 is a huge difference. what more do you want? the 500 rebel has everything i want and need except I can always use more power.

I agree its a huge difference. I guess I was hoping for bit bigger tank and longer range...but I get it...its a cruiser, not a touring bike.

It is a big gap between 500 and 1100, i want more choice of bobber between manufacturers.
The 650 Vulcan needs to be "reset".
I want a Triumph 900 bobber, a new HD 883 like a 48.
But this is only what i would like to see. And i am not representative...

I like your choices. Honda have a 900 twin engine (I think) which I believe was more suitable for the Rebel.
