Watch the New Honda Super Cub Being Produced at the Kumamoto Factory
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.
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.
