The Honda Super Cub, is the world’s best-selling motor vehicle – having sold in excess of 100 million units worldwide since 1958. It now benefits from a new, more powerful SOHC air- cooled engine that produces outstanding fuel economy. Your IE editor has tested older 90cc versions of the Cub in the past and measured around 130-140mpg, depending on the terrain and riding style.
The iconic ‘S’ shaped Super Cub styling remains, plus the commuter machine now features a pillion seat and rear footpegs as standard alongside full LED lighting. This year this style is elevated by a brand-new Mat Axis Grey Metallic colour scheme, which in true ‘Cub style, is topped off with classic red seats that pays homage to the 1958 original.
