We saw Honda release a refreshed version of the iconic Super Cub in Europe a few years back, complete with a new engine and new tech but with the same retro styling. Now, the modern-day iteration of the world’s best-selling motorcycle has just received even more updates, and we just can’t help but feel a bit jealous.
Granted, there aren’t a lot of updates, but we’re still keeping our fingers crossed that we’ll see this land on our shores in the future. The Dio did make a comeback, after all. Anyway, what Honda has added for the 2022 model are the pillion seat and the rear footpegs.
The unit pictured here features a gray finish, which is beautifully accentuated by the red seats. As mentioned, the styling is still the same, but that’s perfectly fine.
It still gets the updated 124cc air-cooled SOHC engine that generates 9.7hp and 10.4Nm of torque. It’s got a measly 3.7-liter tank, which is just enough to get you everywhere considering the bike does well above 60km/L.
It’s also got all the modern bike tech as standard, including ABS, LED lights, and a very nifty Honda Smart Key. Mechanical upgrades available here are the new springs for the fork and rear shock absorbers, which will supposedly translate to a comfier ride.
So, what do you think of the updated Super Cub? Do you agree with us when we say Honda Philippines should consider bringing this here?
