To those choosing the SCR over the Rebel:
I just traded in the Rebel for the SCR.
The Rebel is a great, high revving little bobber.
The SCR is definitely bigger, stronger, and simply has more road presence. For me itís a much Ďbetterí bike.
In the UK, the Rebel retails at about 5 grand, the SCR 9 grand (although there are plenty of 7-8 grand deals to be had on a new one) - to be honest, the cost of the bike reflects the difference in build quality IMHO. The Rebel is a budget bike and I had to have the exhaust replaced twice under warranty due to rust issues. The engine was great though and everything else ok. I put 14000 miles on mine in a year and it served me very well in all seasons.
