The new 2017 Honda Rebel has gone through some big changes compared to years before including a completely new look.

The entry level motorcycle has received its first full redesign since it debuted thirty years ago. The classic chrome cruiser now resembles a trendy blacked out bobber with fat tires on cast wheels, and it’s offered in two versions, both a little bigger than the outgoing Rebel 250.

The Rebel 300 comes with a liquid cooled, 286cc single-piston engine, while the Rebel 500 is now powered by a 471 cu liquid-cooled twin. Both come with six-speed transmissions and are available with anti-lock brakes as well.

Prices will start at around $4,399 for the 300 and $5,999 for the 500, which undercuts the similarly millennial-focused Harley-Davidson Street 500 by $850.
