Honda’s planning a Rebel cruiser with a 1000cc Africa Twin motor inside. Plus some nice prototype – type styling touches


Honda has filed designs for an Africa Twin-powered big Rebel cruiser.


The plans for the upcoming easy rider aper have been uncovered by our friends at YoungMachine in Japan who took the designs and photoshopped up what the bike will end up looking like.

The Rebel 1000 shares most of its styling queues with its smaller siblings already in the Honda range but we know that the new cruiser will share the LED headlight from Honda’s GB1000TT prototype first unveiled at the end of last year (below).


With the Africa Twin motor powering the cruiser expect it to kick out somewhere in the region of 93bhp from the 270 degree parallel twin. This bike could easily be part of Honda’s MY2019.
