Over 100 million Honda Super Cubs produced; this is how it's done

Since 1958, Honda has produced more than 100 million Super Cubs. As we approach the 60th anniversary of the Super Cub, Honda released a video showing how they are assembled at its factory in Kumamoto, Japan.

The model featured in this video is the newly revamped 2018 Honda Super Cub 110. Also available as a Super Cub 50, the latest iterations of the ubiquitous Hondas maintain the model’s classic shape, but receive new LED headlights and detachable side covers.

100,000,000 Honda Super Cubs: How many is that, and what does It All Mean?

Once the subject of the famous “You meet the nicest people on a Honda” campaign, the Super Cub is sadly no longer offered in the U.S. However, Honda did recently show off a new Super Cub 125 concept (pictured below) at the Tokyo Motor Show. Powered by a 125cc motor (likely the same one used on the Grom), we’re hoping it will make it over here if Honda decides to put it into production.

A bloodhound when it comes to tracking information on new motorcycles, if there's a new model on the horizon, you'll probably hear about it from him first.

    The Cub is a far more useful bike than the Grom. Hopefully we get it someday.

    Honda Super Cub was the most popular motorbike in Pakistan, people even still prefer to buy the old models. Now it has been replaced by Honda CD 70
