Is there any sort of performance work that can be done to the 250's my brother wants to know before he decides to buy another rebel or not.

There's not a whole lot to be done to get extra horsepower. It's pretty well topped out at 234cc. You can change exhaust, add a pod air filter, change sprockets and rejet the carb.
He's not looking to make it a monster. But he's 6ft and 155 and said his last rebel struggled on highway and wants to just make it a tad more. So probably a sprocket change yes
I would do anything to it it's fine the way it is if it's too slow for ya you need another bike 750 shadow I got both and sometimes I love the simpleness of the rebel and sometimes I love the weight of the shadow depends on my mood lol
I'm buying one since I'm moving to Phoenix just to ride around from cafe to cafe and ride around the city site seeing
Honda bike are well made that's why year after year they look the same it comes down to what you prefer
The look will be changed very quickly when I get it lol, but I was curious since he asked me about making the speed better for highway.
750 for highway
He's only looking to do 65 lol
That's rebel sweet spot the only thing when it's windy or wet it tends to slip on the road markers and the shadow doesn't it has thicker tires
He's 6'@155, then he shouldn't be having problems doing more than 65. I'm 235± and doing 70+ on the highway when it's warm and 65 when cooler. In the winter I have done power issues but still goes good.
