Hi from mid Buckinghamshire in UK. Very pleased to be the owner of a 2017 Rebel 500. My beloved 12yr old Kymco Venox 250 cruiser expired at 12 years from gearbox failure. Seeing the Rebel on introduction, I thought that this would be the only bike Ithat could replace my Venox. And it has, and it is very similar. Nice to have some extra 'oomph' and it's nice and light - a necessity when over 60 years into riding bikes. Good to be on here too.
