New 2020 model Rebel 250

Price of the original 2020 model Rebel250

Regular model costs 599,500 yen, and the S variant costs 638,000 yen. The difference is 38,500 yen. The difference between the equipment is below. Isn’t the price rising? You may think that. 


As mentioned , the price of the ABS model remains at 545,000 yen. 

For 2020, there is no model without ABS. As we said before, there is no price increase during the upgrade.

Planned sales volume of new 2020 model Rebel250

Sales volume doubled in last three years. (We don’t think there was model in 2018.)

2020 model. 9,000 units.Probably a number that includes the Rebel 500, but it’s a super bullish number. 

Probably, there was a considerable number of pre-orders. Rebel 250, it is a trendy model. The dealer said he didn’t think it would sell as much.

That’s how Honda’s sales plan for the first year looks like.We think that there are relatively many colors and the price can be kept unchanged.

Equipped with new 2020 model Rebel250

Although the photo of Rebel500 is mixed, it is almost the same except for the engine and levers.

LED headlight

It’s a bit like the CB400SF headlight, but it’s a different thing. There are eight lights, but are these four lights? Low high diameter 175mm.

LED turn signal

55mm in diameter. Also serves as a position lamp.

LED tail lamp

Off tail lamp Stop lamp

New meter

Gear position indicator is adopted.

It is the first CBR250R water-cooled single-cylinder engine.

That is, the future, CB250R, the new CBR250R of the 2020 model year, the first CRF250L / RALLY, is likely to become a gear position indicator equipped with even model change. 

Assist & slipper clutch

Here is the image of Rebel300. The assist & slipper clutch is also adopted. We did mentioned about a 30% load reduction for Rebel500.

Assist & slipper clutch is also the first CBR250R engine.

So we think this may arrive in the next model of the CBR250R engine.

Front and rear suspension improvements

Image of Rebel300.

“The wide-pitch 41mm erect front fork achieves excellent riding comfort and road following ability by optimizing oil and springs.”

Around the rear, a damper unit filled with nitrogen gas usage to stabilize the damping force, and by optimizing the springs, the cruiser-like ride comfort and the excellent body behavior stability on rough road surfaces are improved. Secure. “

Amazingly, there is no increase in price.

Seat improvement

Seat has become more comfortable. Like the new Rebel500, so maybe the Rebel250.
 Rebel500 has an adjuster on the brake, but the Rebel250 doesn’t have that.

Comparison of Rebel250 S Edition and Rebel250

  • Body color: Matt Axis Gray Metallic is set only for S
  • Headlight cowl with a smokescreen
  • Front fork cover
  • Front fork boots
  • Diamond stitch style sheet (brown)
  • Price: 638,000 yen including tax (38,500 yen increase)

Street 750 or that type of design. Is it fashionable? Official photo. It’s good .It looks brilliant.

Changes in the new 2020 model-new Rebel250

New vs Old


  • Full length: 2,205mm / 2,190mm

Although it is a spec, only the total length has changed.“Complies with 2016 regulations.”The engine is as it is now. That is quite surprising.For Rebel500, the ACG output goes up from 0.34kw to 0.5kw.

Doesn’t this mean that the amount of power generated has increased, but that the amount of energy generated is made more comfortable”.


  • Headlight: LED / halogen
  • Tail lamp: LED/bulb
  • Turn signal: LED/bulb
  • Meter: gear position / nothing
  • Front fork: improved
  • Rear suspension: gas-filled type
  • Seat: improved
  • Clutch: Assist & slipper clutch / Normal

Appearance comparison

Angle is different, so it looks different in size, but the total length is about 15mm longer.

It may not be a wheelbase or a caster.

  • Headlight change
  • Tail lamp change
  • Blinker change

Difference in appearance is about the neo retro.Impression changes quite a bit. Suddenly the neo retro feeling becomes stronger.

There is no emergency price increase. Even though it is still trendy, it has become even more popular.

Rebel250 comes as a ABS model only.If you want a custom base, that has custom lights, it’s a good idea to target your current store inventory. It will be cheaper.

Also, Rebel250, but we were waiting for several months at the end of the 2019 model due to an unknown delivery date.

So the new model is absolutely brilliant. If you need early, we think that it is better to make reservations.

We think Honda is preparing a certain number for initial units as it is a prevalent model.
