Honda Super Cub C125 is a personal commuter motorcyle powered by a reliable and economical 125cc SOHC 2-valve fuel injection engine in a premium body design with retro modern style that is timeless, classic and iconic.

The Super Cub C125 was released on September 14th (Friday) 2018 in Japan. This bike has a bore and stroke of 52.4 x 57.9mm with a compression ratio of 9.3:1. Maximum power of 6.76kW can be achieved at 7500 rpm and maximum torque of 9.79 Nm at 5000 rpm.

The Honda Super Cub C125 is a "bird" that is reminiscent of the first model Super Cub C100 in a silhouette composed of a smooth curved surface that connects the leg shield to the rear fender, which is a characteristic design of the successive Super Cub series. The styling is universal and elegant, such as the adoption of a "unit steer" that integrates the front fork from the "handle" part that looks like the wings are spread out.
The car body is based on the Super Cub 110, and by increasing the rigidity of the components, it realizes a car body behavior with a sense of security corresponding to the power performance of the 125cc engine. The suspension contributes to further improvement in comfort by optimizing the stroke amount of the front and rear suspensions.
The engine is equipped with an air-cooled, 4-stroke, OHC, 125cc single-cylinder engine that is easy to handle and has excellent fuel efficiency. By giving the engine a luxurious appearance and optimizing each part, a quieter and smoother shift feeling with less shift shock is achieved.
In addition, as the latest equipment that contributes to excellent convenience and comfort, LED lighting with excellent energy saving and Honda SMART Key system that can start the engine more conveniently are adopted. We are pursuing smarter usability and quality, such as an elegant meter with chrome-plated parts.

Since the first model Super Cub C100 was released in August 1958, the Super Cub series is equipped with a 4-stroke engine with excellent fuel efficiency, quietness, reliability and durability, and has a low floor that makes it easy to get on and off. It is a long-selling model that is favored by a wide range of customers due to the adoption of a backbone type frame and an automatic centrifugal clutch that omits clutch operation, and will celebrate its 60th anniversary in August 2018.
