The original Honda Super Cub is the world’s most popular and most produced motor vehicle ever. In fact, in October of 2017, Super Cub production surpassed the 100,000,000 mark—that’s eight zeroes if you’re counting. No other vehicle, much less motorcycle, approaches that number. To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Super Cub, Honda is debuting a limited run of Super Cub C125 ABS.
The Super Cub has a 124.9cc air-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke. The fuel-injected motor lives up to Honda’s reputation for putting out reliable engines that last. The four-speed semi-automatic transmission operates without a clutch—it’s a simple toe shift. The chassis also features a step-through design that not only makes it easier to get on and off the bike, but also provides some shielding from winds and road splash. It also comes with ABS as a standard feature.
As a nod to where they’ve come from, Honda styled the 2019 Super Cub in the same 1950-esque style that the cub has always had. While the seat may be comfortable for only a single rider, the rack behind the seat might come in handy for commuters. Keeping the price right around the $4,000 mark will ensure that the Cub’s total units sold metric will continue to rise, adding even more zeroes to its impressive record.
