Reborn Super Cub Pays Homage To The Bike That Made Honda

Additional details about the revived Honda Super Cub have been announced prior to the bike launching in the United States in January 2019.

As with the original Super Cub, the new one combines the looks of a scooter with those of a motorcycle. As such, the bike features a step-through chassis and the rider’s feet are positioned in a location similar to a motorcycle, rather than in front like a scooter.

Topping out the Honda Super Cub range is the C125 model. Complete in Honda’s signature blue, white and red color scheme, it is powered by a single-cylinder, air-cooled 124.9 cc engine with keyless ignition, Ride Apart reports.

Additionally, the Super Cub C125 has a four-speed semi-automatic transmission coupled to an automatic centrifugal clutch. The shifter is found in front of the left foot peg like a motorcycle, but the Super Cub makes do without a clutch lever. ABS comes as standard.

“We know our customers, male or female, take their personal style seriously and we want our new Super Cub C125 to enrich their lifestyle,” large project leader for the Super Cub C125, Tadamasa Maeda, said. “Its timeless design expresses value and universality, and we have added a new level of performance to the engine and handling ability to the chassis.

“Just like it was for our founder, our biggest joy is to play a positive part in daily life – and also put a big smile on the face of every Super Cub owner whenever and wherever they ride it,” he commented.

Honda has built more than 100 million Super Cubs throughout the vehicle’s 60-year history. Prices for the new Super Cub will start at $3599 in the United States.

  • $3599?? Damn Honda is overcharging this, pretty sure it would sold in Asia for like a grand.

      I think they made a typo, and that $3600 figure must be for two or three machines. Surely Honda’s not greedy enough to price a little peasant-bike that high!

    Hope it’s made in Japan.

  • Six Thousand Times

    Like but the price is too high for the people’s motorcycle. Plus, I’m now much more interested in an electric bike.

    Neat little hard surface road scouter. Priced double , what it should cost.

  • BGM

    For me it’s a Vespa or nothing.

  • Yak Yak Yak

    Just like their SH150 scooter a few years ago, the new Super Cub looks like a good product, priced like a great product.

  • SteersUright

    I mostly see little mopeds things like this in 3rd world nations on very rough roads. A beefed up and more rugged version would likely serve them better. This one looks rather delicate.
