I'm Tim from RI, and I am a fairly new Rebel 250 owner as of a few weeks ago. I have a 2001 Rebel in blue and I'm loving it. Looking forward to becoming involved on the forums and learning more about my little bike!
I mean roundel is just what I've been calling it because it reminds me of an old school royal air force type roundel- It's just the white circles with 'Rebel' through the middle in red. My bike is the only rebel I've ever seen in that style and I wasn't sure if it was standard or an oddity.
