Yesterday evening the Thai made Honda Rebel 500 (CMX500) was officially launched in Indonesia. The new Honda Bobber-styled motorcycle received a positive response from the people that attended the launch party at the main Honda motorcycle dealer in Jakarta.
At the single evening event Honda was able to sell more than 40 Honda Rebel 500 motorcycles. The first Honda Rebel 500 motorcycles are expected to be delivered not later than August.
The main Honda dealer in Jakarta said that the demand for the Honda Rebel 500 was beyond what was estimated. Honda Indonesia will try to adjust the amount of imported motorcycles to keep up with market demand.
For now the best selling Honda Rebel 500 in Indonesia is the Grey-Black color. Honda Indonesia actually sells the same three colors as Thailand, being Grey-Black, Red-Black and All-Black. The best-selling Honda Rebel 500 Grey-Black color, accounted for 60 percent of the sold motorcycles. According to local sale representatives this is because the Grey-Black model looks more classic and retro.
