The Super Cub’s simple appeals of ease of use, reliability and frugality have never gone out of fashion. It’s why over 100 million have been made over the last 60 years. And also why, for 2019 it’s been reborn.
The new Super Cub C125 is a stylish evolution of a revolutionary machine that’s worked so hard for so many over the last six decades. The riding position is straight-backed and gives excellent visibility, the seat uses high-density urethane foam for comfort and the handlebars are rubbermounted. Full LED lighting is a premium addition, as is the Honda Smart Key which controls the ignition and immobiliser from the rider’s pocket.
The tubular steel frame, telescopic forks, twin rear shocks and cast aluminium 17-inch wheels rolling tubeless tyres, ensure confident handling. And its robust 125cc air-cooled, fuel-injected engine generates a smooth and linear power delivery. It’s also fuel efficient, returning 41.4 miles per litre (WMTC mode). And just like the original, an automatic centrifugal clutch makes operating the four-speed gearbox twist-and-go simple.
