2019 Honda Super Cub

Might as well make a new thread about this. Honda is bringing the Honda Super Cub back to America
https://powersports.honda.com/2019/s...-c125-abs.aspx

I honestly think that Honda has seen the light that modern retros are popular and is jumping on the bandwagon.

The All-New 2019 Super Cub
THE WORLD’S FAVORITE MOTORCYCLE, AGAIN.
Fact: Honda’s original Cub is the most popular, most produced motor vehicle in the history of the planet. And now, the latest version is coming to the U.S. in limited quantities: the all-new 2019 Super Cub. Same timeless, classic look as the original. Same off-the-chart fun factor. But totally modern when it comes to technology. The new Super Cub C125 ABS is a great choice for day-to-day transportation, or just for riding for enjoyment. We dare you spend an afternoon on one and not come back wearing a gigantic smile. That’s what a couple generations of riders before learned, and that’s what a new generation is going to learn again. The original Cub changed the world. Let the new 2019 Honda Super Cub change yours.

Nice. I hope it inspires another generation of riders.
It’s just so practical for some applications.

I'm fascinated by this. US riders typically seem locked on power and/or cc's. The Super Cub has mobilized millions across the globe, and is worthy of huge respect for its versatility, longevity and general brilliance.

Not that I want one ;-) But I totally respect the old girl!!!

My parents crashed one of these in the Bahamas while my mom was pregnant with me. Has been talked of in my family as why I ride motorcycles. I probably need to get one someday.

This is excellent! The original cub was like the basic family car when I lived in Japan 1958-1962 (yes, I am that old). They were everywhere and one of the very few motorcycles that could run on straight gas being a four stroke. Almost every other motorcycle/scooter were ring-dings and had to run on oil/gas mix. The original got over 100mpg IIRC. With the centrifugal clutch, anybody could ride one (and did).

They even retained the full coverage chain guard on the new one, an excellent feature.

Doesn't have the cool front springers like the old one though

I REALLY hoping that this leads to a re-release of the Trail 90

Different transmission, though. Clutchless 4 speed.

How does that work when you're slowing down? Can I just be speeding along in 4th, and ABS to a hard stop, then just click down 3 times to 1st at the light?
