More Information on the Honda CMX250C

The Honda CMX250, or Rebel 250, is a 234 cc (14.3 cu in) cruiser-style motorcycle made by Honda on and off since 1985. It uses the same 234 cubic centimetres (14.3 cu in) straight-twin engine as the Honda Nighthawk 250 standard. The Rebel is part of the CM series of cruisers. It is commonly used in the Motorcycle Safety Foundation's certified rider-training courses.

The Rebel's fuel consumption averages 52–62.6 mpg-US (4.52–3.76 L/100 km; 62.4–75.2 mpg-imp), with refills needed at around 190 miles (310 km). The 1996 Rebel had the best fuel economy, 62.6 miles per US gallon (3.76 L/100 km; 75.2 mpg-imp), of the 352 past and current models tested in the 2010 Motorcycle Consumer News (MCN) Performance Index. By 2012, the 1996 Rebel's fuel economy had been exceeded by several models on the MCN Performance Index, led by the Yamaha Virago 250 at 66.9 mpg-US (3.52 L/100 km; 80.3 mpg-imp). Its maximum speed is 70 miles per hour (110 km/h), and 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 km/h) time is 11.86 seconds, with a 0 to 1/4 mi (0.00 to 0.40 km) time of 17.86 seconds at 68.55 mph (110.32 km/h). Its wet weight is 320 lb (150 kg).

It has a single disc brake in the front and a drum in the rear. The only gauge is a speedometer that includes gear recommendations based on speed; there is no tachometer. The transmission is a standard down-1st, up-2nd to 5th 5-speed.

The September 1985 issue of Motorcyclist magazine, when the Rebel was first introduced, said, "by targeting the bike to a young audience, such as those who watch MTV, Honda hopes to attract newcomers and expand the motorcycle market ... Honda is not marketing this motorcycle as a woman's bike."

Police use

The Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia began to purchase the Rebel in the early 1980s to replace the Vespa scooters they had previously used, but by the mid-2000s the MPD decided to begin replacing the Rebels with the Harley Davidson XL 883 Sportster, citing a need for more power, durability, and visibility.
