The 2021 Honda Rebel 1100 (CMX1100) broke the covers in November 2020 as a Japanese bobber to take on some of the American counterparts. Just like the Honda Rebel 500 available here in Malaysia, the 1100 can be seen as a blank canvas for owners to add their own personal touches in making it more 'custom', apart from having more power and torque.
FCR Original, a custom shop hailing from France, had their own visions on the potentials presented to further elevate the Honda Rebel 1100. They got their hands on a couple of units and went to town in preparation for the Wheels and Waves motorcycle show. Unfortunately, the event was cancelled, but the bikes are ready to go.
The CMX Rebel displays what a true no-holds-bar bobber can look like when the right talent and passion are thrown into the mix. The stance of the bike was slammed to achieve that classic bobber facade together with the additions of buckhorn handlebars, wire-spoke wheels, and some fat Bridgestone tyres.
Other enhancements to the CMX Rebel come in the form of a 3D-printed fuel tank (made using a polyester/carbon fibre blend), ceramic-coated FCR exhaust, and a minimalist paint job that just screams "Wow". Looks like they really know their stuff when it comes to the Rebel.
If you're into something a bit more sporty, the CMX Sport might do you just right thanks to a number of performance enhancements like twin Ohlins rear shocks, 17-inch cast wheels, Dunlop sport tyres, and a sick-looking red/black paintjob that's probably inspired by one of the models from Keanu Reeves' bike company, Arch Motorcycles.
Just like the CMX Bobber, the CMX Sport also comes with a 3D-printed fuel tank, mini turn indicators, leather seat, and a stainless steel exhaust system that'll bark and growl every time someone cracks open its throttle. We love the Rebel 1100, but we simply adore these two custom beauties from FCR Original.
