Hi, newbie here just went for my training and got my motorcycle licence... I do currently own a Harley sportster but I am looking to get a rebel to ride for awhile because the sportster is a bit too powerful for me! Looking to get some info and to learn something new.

you can often find a late model 2006-2016 low mileage Rebel for reasonable price..
stay with 2nd generation 1996-2016 models as parts are available

Good choice on seeking a Rebel to gain experience. I am a new rider and recently purchased one for the same reason. But I could also see holding onto this bike indefinitely - - you may be surprised how capable it is!

I am a returning rider (after 30-odd years) and find the Rebel very comfortable to ride. I think you made the right decision.

Yes you may have to change gears a little more frequently, but for me, operating the machine is part of the fun. Otherwise I'd hop in my truck with an automatic trans.
