HISTORY OF THE SUPER CUB
The very first Super Cub C100 was introduced back in 1958, when Honda was only 10 years old. The Cub was designed by Soichiro Honda and his long-time business partner Takeo Fujisawa with the very straightforward goal: ‘to provide the joy of playing a useful part in people’s lives.’
Fast-forward to 2017 – nearly 60 years later when the 100 millionth Super Cub rolled off the production line, making it the most popular motor vehicle the world has ever seen. 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 in South East Asia, where it’s found a place in people’s homes as private transport. Aware of a 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 pleased to offer the Super Cub C125 to the Australian market.
The C125 is an evolution of the legendary Super Cub machine and the next chapter in its long history, designed for modern life in a busy city. Its timeless design expresses value and universality and offers a new level of performance with a modern engine and updated handling ability. Just like it was for our founder, the new C125 is designed to put joy and positivity into daily life – and will put a big smile on the face of every Super Cub owner whenever and wherever they ride it.
