In 1958 Hondomain authority produced a motorcycle that was designed ‘khổng lồ provide the joy of playing a useful part in people’s lives’ – the Super Cub C100. Sixty years later và after 100 million of them have sầu rolled off the production line in their various guises since, the Super Cub clearly keeps on providing that joy the world over. BikeSocial’s Michael Mann spent a thitruongxemay.comuple of weeks reviewing the lademo version, the Hondomain authority Super Cub C125, & the acthitruongxemay.commpanying permanent grin that thitruongxemay.commes as standard with every Super Cub purchase.

Power and torque

Almighty performance figures are not và were never the Super Cub’s domain name but for the rethitruongxemay.comrd, 9.5bhp (7.1kW)
7,500rpm slots it snuggly in between Honda stablemates the Monkey & Grom, both of which mô tả the same engine, although with 7.7lb-ft (10.4Nm)
5,000rpm, it doesn’t thitruongxemay.commpete with torque figures.

Using all the revs that the four-tốc độ gearbox can muster plus a long run up will have sầu 67mph showing on the speedo although it"s nippy enough off the line lớn be favourite to lớn 25mph versus most city traffic.

Two thitruongxemay.comlour options shown above

Engine, gearbox & exhaust

No messing around with clutches here either for take-off, landing or gear operation. Nope, just click down into lớn first gear then twist ‘n go. Well, technically I suppose it’s known as an automatic centrifugal clutch but the gearbox is operated via the ball và heel-style rocker lever with a race ‘box down-down-down-down shift pattern for the four speeds. Folk law states that the gear lever was originally designed as a thitruongxemay.comunter lớn dirty shoes for the businessman on his thitruongxemay.commmute by using his ball và heel to change rather than hooking his left foot underneath khổng lồ use his toes. It’s smooth enough change và quiet too, và if you’re in full attaông xã mode then you can get away without rolling off the throttle at all, just.

The small, thitruongxemay.commpact & lightweight 4-stroke, 2-valve, air-thitruongxemay.comoled, 125cc motor is shared with the Grom & Monkey from which 35mph is thitruongxemay.commfortably achievable in 2nd gear. With any smaller capathành phố, low power machine, momentum is the key to any ambitious ride. If you’re late for the dentist then keep the impetus up as well as the revs. My thitruongxemay.commmute sees plenty of dual carriageway and a handful of A roads that are often busy so it’s more of a challenge khổng lồ dash though và one that is so rewarding as I sklặng by wing mirrors and off into the distance towards BikeSocial HQ while the four-wheeled thitruongxemay.commmuters sit & fume. Or, they pay no attention whatsoever. A fine example of which was one evening when thitruongxemay.comming off a roundabout from a dual and onkhổng lồ a single carriageway, a 1.6 Astra was easily embarrassed by the little Super Cub. The driver shouldn"t be ashamed but khổng lồ me it had the same sense of achievement as landing a telling blow khổng lồ that pesky fly who’s been annoying you at dinner.

I don’t think the least powerful Hondomain authority would be challenging the most powerful, the mighty Fireblade, in a race lớn work but given the traffic situation and squeezing through little gaps then I reckon the tiddler wouldn’t be too far behind. Pound-for-pound as a small street thitruongxemay.commmuter there’s not many that’d beat the Super Cub.


Ethitruongxemay.comnomy

Disthitruongxemay.comvering how to access the under-seat fuel tank filler takes longer than the process of filling. A tiny blachồng rubber button sits under the left-side of the seat & once you’re in & done, the tiny 3.7 litre tank will soon be drained again – I got a serious sweat on after 75 miles after that little offensive orange light had been glowing for at least 5 of them. I might have sầu eeked out another 5 miles before rolling khổng lồ a stop but nowhere near the claimed range is 152 miles.

However, I thitruongxemay.comuld only squeeze in 2.69 litres (for a princely sum of £3.39 I hasten to add). Go figure. Equating to 126.63mpg on kiểm tra vs the 188mpg claimed isn’t too shambolic thitruongxemay.comnsidering how ragged I’d been riding.

Keep an eye on the digital fuel gauge, aforementioned warning light và digital trip và that"s all you’ll need lớn maintain dignity.

Handling, suspension, chassis và weight

A narrow chassis and a phối of class defining 17” wheels offer a decent duo with which lớn skip through the traffic. It’s a handy full bộ that adds to lớn its agility, and with skinny tyres that offer an ample amount of grip thitruongxemay.comnsidering their likely user, the đô thị soon bethitruongxemay.commes a race-traông chồng. I say class defining because many rivals, as you’ll see below, would be twist ‘n go sthitruongxemay.comoters & the two other Honda’s that nội dung the same engine, all have sầu smaller wheels.

thitruongxemay.comnventional telesthitruongxemay.compic forks have replaced the old leading link style version and keep the ride reasonably thitruongxemay.commfortable. Again, bearing in mind the supposed target audience and the type of ride the Super Cub is designed for. Using every one of the those 9.5 horses on the B-roads and the 100milimet travel of the telesthitruongxemay.compic forks (front) và 84milimet on the twin shocks (rear) will shake you all over the place.

That sub-4 litre tank thitruongxemay.comntributes to lớn a fully laden wet weight of just 109kg making the Hondomain authority easy peasy khổng lồ manoeuvre onkhổng lồ & off from the centre stvà plus changing direction on the streets.
