There's a lot to like about the Super Cub, and a few unexpected features.

- The 17 inch wheel size continues to be great for ride quality; cast rather than spoke construction is a welcome change.

- ABS seems to be an increasingly standard, and often mandated. Good, but doesn't seem a breakthrough any more.

- The smart key doesn't much interest me, but admittedly others might find the smart key a desired feature.

- Enclosing the final drive continues to be a good feature, but retaining a chain rather than switching to belt drive was unexpected.

- LED lighting is often superbly done and hopefully so done on the Super Cub, but once in a while isn't very well implemented.

Having read some related articles, I noticed an electric version of the Super Cub. A comparison of the electric and ICE versions would be great. Having relocated from a very small town requiring highway travel for most destinations, vehicles like the Super Cub have become potential options.

I really like tiny bikes and this one looks like a lot of fun but....

The Key Fob is a big negative for me.  I prefer the tried and true "dumb" keys that have come with bikes for so long.

While it looks like fun, a small scooter is just as much fun and is way more practical.  I'll be buying another small scooter soon.  The Cub is not something I expect to ever own but it's great having ore options in tiny bikes.

I've always wanted an original Cub, so this will be a no-brainer for me.  I already have a PCX, but the Cub is going to be a pure fun little weekend bike for me as I think those 17s will be a much nicer ride.  The PCX will keep it's commuter job and the S'Wing will still be my distance and highway ride.

I would buy one if it was a 150cc  same with the monkey.  125cc is to slow imo
that's why I sold my grom and bought a kymco spade 150

Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous. It is, however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence, or stupidity

It is amazing how that 25cc makes so much difference.

over here in Australia the Post office uses Honda Supa Cubs for delivery services. 110cc fuel injected top speed around 90km/h.  These replaced Honda Ct110s which have a legendary status here. Australia Post dispose of their bikes thru auctions so the upshot is the public can buy them. My son has a Supa Cub and commutes to work on it. In fact some riders  have "done the lap" around Australia which is quite a feat considering they have a 4.6 litre fuel tank top speed of 90km/h and drum brakes.

Wow a lap around Australia!  That sounds like fun.
