Since 1985 the Honda 250 Rebel has taught new riders the basic skills they’ll need to move on to larger and faster motorcycles. Whether they owned a Rebel 250, or rode one during a Honda Rider Education Center course, many people have fond memories of the venerable Honda CMX250C Rebel. The CMX250 Rebel, and its sibling the CB250 Nighthawk, use bullet-proof air cooled 234 cc parallel-twin cylinder engines that can trace its roots back to the Honda CM200T Twinstar from the early 1980’s.
K&N has finally released a new washable and reusable air filter, number HA-2596, to meet the demand for increased performance and ease of maintenance by Honda Rebel owners. This particular High-Flow Replacement Air Filter will need to be oiled with the supplied pillow pack of oil before it is ready to ride.
