honda Super Cub C125

The very first Super Cub C100 was introduced in 1958, Honda’s 10th year of existence. Designed by Soichiro Honda and his long-time business partner Takeo Fujisawa, its stated aim was straightforward: ‘to provide the joy of playing a useful part in people’s lives’.

Nearly 60 years later, in 2017, the 100 millionth Super Cub was built, making it the most popular motor vehicle the world has ever seen. And along the way the Super Cub’s simple attributes of style, reliability, frugality and sheer usability have never gone out of fashion; it has quietly achieved exactly what Soichiro and Takeo wanted - to get people mobile and keep them mobile.

Up until now the latest model – the Super Cub C110 – has been available in Japan, where it’s proved popular with business users including the Japanese Post Office, and South East Asia, where it’s found a place in people’s homes as private transport.

Aware of a whole demographic of urban riders - both younger and more mature - who are looking for retro-inspired machinery with real credibility and head-turning style, Honda is unveiling the Super Cub C125, an evolution of the legendary machine and the next chapter in its long history, designed for modern life in a busy city.
