2022 Honda® Rebel1100 Manual Features may include: Torque monster The new Rebel 1100 uses a modified version of the 1,084 cc, liquid-cooled engine that powers the acclaimed Africa Twin, ensuring arm-pulling acceleration from low speeds and impressive top-end performance. The engine’s parallel-twin configuration and Unicam cylinder head contribute to the bike’s overall low centre of gravity and optimum mass centralization, which help produce stable, road-hugging, confident handling. Tuned for cruising To give the Rebel 1100 its unique cruiser personality, valve timing and lift and even ignition timing were modified from Africa Twin spec, while flywheel mass was boosted 20 percent to increase inertia. The 270-degree crankshaft features uneven firing intervals that produce the powerful engine pulses that make riding a big-twin cruiser so much fun. Riding Modes The Rebel features three riding modes (Standard, Sport, Rain) plus a User mode. These modes adjust the Power, Engine Braking, Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), Wheelie Control and even the shift pattern on the DCT, allowing you to personalize your ride to your style and the road conditions. Available DCT transmission The Rebel 1100 looks like no other cruiser out there, and it’s engineered like no other cruiser, either. Case in point: the available Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT), a first for a cruiser motorcycle. The DCT is an automated manual transmission, built with the same operating principals of a manual transmission but shifts automatically, allowing you to enjoy the ride without having to worry about the clutch or gears. The Rebel offers three automatic modes to tune the shifting to your style of riding. Want more control? Use the paddle shift buttons to override the automatic gear selection or put in manual mode for full control. Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) and Wheelie Control Exploring new roads is one of the true joys of motorcycle cruising. Because you can’t always be sure of optimum weather or road conditions, the Rebel 1100 comes equipped with Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), which inhibits rear-wheel slip while cornering or accelerating. When the rear tire loses traction on a slippery road surface, HSTC instantly kicks in and suppresses engine torque. The amount of torque control can be selected in three steps, and the system can also be disabled. The Rebel 1100’s advanced electronics also incorporate a wheelie-control system to inhibit front-wheel lift under acceleration.
