Honda Australia will release its new C125 Super Cub this week, with pricing set from $6199 plus on-road costs.
The new C125 Super Cub celebrates the incredible milestone of more than 100 million Cubs sold globally, in more than 160 countries, making it the world’s most popular motorcycle nameplate of all time.
In Australia, the Super Cub is available in two colours, Pearl and Nebula Red, and although not pictured here, it will benefit from standard equipment like a carry rack, passenger foot pegs and a side stand.
The Super Cub is powered by a 125cc air-cooled fuel-injected single-cylinder engine, matched with a three-speed automatic gearbox.
Compared to the original design, the new C125 features longer travel front and rear suspension, 17-inch cast aluminium wheels and a disc brake at the front.
The bike also gains LED lighting, while the instrument cluster combines an analogue speedo with a modern, yet “understated”, digital display.
A Honda Smart Key comes standard, allowing riders to simply put the key fob in their pocket to ride, while an immobiliser is also equipped as standard.
“The legendary Super Cub does not need much of an introduction,” reads a press release from Honda.
“With over 100 million sold in over 160 countries, it’s easy to see why it’s one of the most recognisable motorcycles in history.
“Modernising a true classic to fit the demands of present day, city life, the Super Cub C125’s timeless charm meets modern advantage, with an economical engine and smooth handling ability.”
