2022 Honda Rebel 300 Buyer’s Guide [Prices, Specs, and Colors]

2022 Honda Rebel 300 For Sale

Honda is standing pat with the 2022 Honda Rebel 300 and its ABS-equipped brother. The two entry-level cruiser motorcycles are unchanged from last year—even the color options of Matte Gray Metallic and Pearl Blue return. However, the price of each version of the Rebel 300 went up $100. Regardless, both Rebel 300s retain an MSRP of less than $5k.

2022 Honda Rebel 300 Price and MSRP

Powered by an oversquare single-cylinder motor displacing 286cc, the 2022 Honda Rebel 300 is a peppy ride, as long as you’re willing to rev it a bit. For casual cruises around town, though, there’s plenty of torque at low- and mid-rpm to keep a rider satisfied. The six-speed transmission means an appropriate gear ratio is always available, and the clutch has an easy pull due to the assist function. If you happen to downshift too quickly, there’s also a slipper capability built in to lessen rear-wheel hop or lockup. The Nissin calipers get an extra bit of room to adapt to rider error on the ABS model.

The handling of the 2022 Honda Rebel 300 is neutral, despite a relaxed 30 degrees of rake. The motorcycle works fine as an urban commuter, as long as the freeway jaunts are kept to a minimum. Although the damping on the suspension is not adjustable, the wheel travel is generous at both ends, and the fat Dunlop D404 tires help smooth out rougher roads.

While the 2022 Honda Rebel 300 may be a great beginner motorcycle, that doesn’t stop it from being a fun ride for those with experience and reasonable expectations.
