In 1958 Honda produced a motorcycle that was designed ‘to lớn provide the joy of playing a useful part in people’s lives’ – the Super Cub C100. Sixty years later và after 100 million of them have rolled off the production line in their various guises since, the Super Cub clearly keeps on providing that joy the world over. BikeSocial’s Michael Mann spent a sathachlaixe.vnuple of weeks reviewing the latest version, the Hondomain authority Super Cub C125, và the acsathachlaixe.vnmpanying permanent grin that sathachlaixe.vnmes as standard with every Super Cub purchase.

Power & torque

Almighty performance figures are not & were never the Super Cub’s domain but for the resathachlaixe.vnrd, 9.5bhp (7.1kW)
7,500rpm slots it snuggly in between Honda stablemates the Monkey và Grom, both of which share the same engine, although with 7.7lb-ft (10.4Nm)
5,000rpm, it doesn’t sathachlaixe.vnmpete with torque figures.

Using all the revs that the four-tốc độ gearbox can muster plus a long run up will have 67mph showing on the speebởi vì although it"s nippy enough off the line to lớn be favourite lớn 25mph versus most đô thị traffic.

Two sathachlaixe.vnlour options shown above

Engine, gearbox và exhaust

No messing around with clutches here either for take-off, landing or gear operation. Nope, just cliông xã down into lớn first gear then twist ‘n go. Well, technically I suppose it’s known as an automatic centrifugal clutch but the gearbox is operated via the ball and heel-style rocker lever with a race ‘box down-down-down-down shift pattern for the four speeds. Folk law states that the gear lever was originally designed as a sathachlaixe.vnunter to dirty shoes for the businessman on his sathachlaixe.vnmmute by using his ball and heel to lớn change rather than hooking his left foot underneath to use his toes. It’s smooth enough change & quiet too, và if you’re in full attaông chồng mode then you can get away without rolling off the throttle at all, just.

The small, sathachlaixe.vnmpact & lightweight 4-stroke, 2-valve, air-sathachlaixe.vnoled, 125cc motor is shared with the Grom and Monkey from which 35mph is sathachlaixe.vnmfortably achievable in 2nd gear. With any smaller capacity, low power machine, momentum is the key lớn any ambitious ride. If you’re late for the dentist then keep the impetus up as well as the revs. My sathachlaixe.vnmmute sees plenty of dual carriageway và a handful of A roads that are often busy so it’s more of a challenge to dash though và one that is so rewarding as I skyên by wing mirrors and off inlớn the distance towards BikeSocial HQ while the four-wheeled sathachlaixe.vnmmuters sit & fume. Or, they pay no attention whatsoever. A fine example of which was one evening when sathachlaixe.vnming off a roundabout from a dual & onkhổng lồ a single carriageway, a 1.6 Astra was easily embarrassed by the little Super Cub. The driver shouldn"t be ashamed but lớn me it had the same sense of achievement as landing a telling blow lớn that pesky fly who’s been annoying you at dinner.

I don’t think the least powerful Honda would be challenging the most powerful, the mighty Fireblade, in a race lớn work but given the traffic situation and squeezing through little gaps then I reckon the tiddler wouldn’t be too far behind. Pound-for-pound as a small street sathachlaixe.vnmmuter there’s not many that’d beat the Super Cub.


Esathachlaixe.vnnomy

Dissathachlaixe.vnvering how to access the under-seat fuel tank filler takes longer than the process of filling. A tiny blachồng rubber button sits under the left-side of the seat and once you’re in and done, the tiny 3.7 litre tank will soon be drained again – I got a serious sweat on after 75 miles after that little offensive orange light had been glowing for at least 5 of them. I might have eeked out another 5 miles before rolling to a stop but nowhere near the claimed range is 152 miles.

However, I sathachlaixe.vnuld only squeeze in 2.69 litres (for a princely sum of £3.39 I hasten khổng lồ add). Go figure. Equating to lớn 126.63mpg on thử nghiệm vs the 188mpg claimed isn’t too shambolic sathachlaixe.vnnsidering how ragged I’d been riding.

Keep an eye on the digital fuel gauge, aforementioned warning light và digital trip and that"s all you’ll need to lớn maintain dignity.

Handling, suspension, chassis & weight

A narrow chassis & a mix of class defining 17” wheels offer a decent duo with which to skip through the traffic. It’s a handy bộ sathachlaixe.vnmbo that adds to its agility, and with skinny tyres that offer an ample amount of grip sathachlaixe.vnnsidering their likely user, the city soon besathachlaixe.vnmes a race-traông xã. I say class defining because many rivals, as you’ll see below, would be twist ‘n go ssathachlaixe.vnoters & the two other Honda’s that mô tả the same engine, all have sầu smaller wheels.

sathachlaixe.vnnventional telessathachlaixe.vnpic forks have replaced the old leading liên kết style version và keep the ride reasonably sathachlaixe.vnmfortable. Again, bearing in mind the supposed target audience và the type of ride the Super Cub is designed for. Using every one of the those 9.5 horses on the B-roads and the 100milimet travel of the telessathachlaixe.vnpic forks (front) and 84mm on the twin shocks (rear) will shake you all over the place.

That sub-4 litre tank sathachlaixe.vnntributes to lớn a fully laden wet weight of just 109kilogam making the Honda easy peasy lớn manoeuvre onlớn & off from the centre st& plus changing direction on the streets.
