2017 Honda Super Cub 110 and Super Cub 50 offer revisions to the styling and features; new 125cc concept likely to be showcased in Tokyo
Yes, you heard that absolutely right! The Honda Super Cub has recently achieved the production mark of 100 million units worldwide. With this, the Honda Super Cub is easily the most produced two-wheeler in the history of automobile.
The history of Honda Super Cub dates back to 1958 when the first ever unit was built at the company’s Yamamoto factory that is situated north of Tokyo. The basic idea of the Super Cub has remained unchanged since its inception. The vehicle is being built at 16 factories in a total of 15 countries across the globe. On the occasion of the Super Cub hitting 100 million mark, Honda held a special event at its Kumamoto production facility.
Honda also revealed two 2017 editions of the Super Cub as a way to celebrate the 100 million production mark. The company has unveiled the updated Super Cub 110 and Super Cub 50 and the two have been introduced with some subtle changes to the overall styling.
Honda has also introduced the Pro versions of the Super Cub 110 and Super Cub 50. The said edition comes with a basket upfront along with a larger luggage rack and smaller 14-inch wheels.
In terms of features, the new Honda Super Cubs have been introduced with LEDs all around and also, there are revisions to the instrumentation. Underneath, the engine is the same at 49cc and 109cc with a water cooled type system.
At the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, Honda will be displaying the Super Cub and there will also be a Cross Cub at the company’s booth at the event. Furthermore, there are reports suggesting that the company will be introducing a 125cc version of the Super Cub at Tokyo. If everything seems fine, the company will put its EV-Cub in production sometime next year. But more than the new Cubs, we are waiting for the next generation Gold Wing that will break cover on 24th October.
