Monkey and Super Cub

Honda Announces American Debut of Monkey and Super Cub

Last Updated: June 11, 2018By Tags: , ,

Two of Honda’s popular miniature motorcycles are returning to its U.S. lineup — the Monkey and the Super Cub C125. The 49cc Monkey in 1968 became a popular tool among racers navigating through the pits. The Super Cub, in the 60 years it’s been produced. It became the world’s best-selling motorized vehicle with over 100 million rolling out of factories.

Both bikes receive sophisticated updates, with a modern 125cc engine powering both the Monkey and the Super Cub. Anti-lock brakes are available but not standard. To hop on the Super Cub, and become one of the world’s “nicest people,” priced around $3,600. The Monkey starts at $3,999, with its upmarket ABS-equipped sibling setting you back an extra $200.

Riding these little Hondas around will set you apart from the swarming Grom gang and won’t make you look too out of place at your local vintage bike night. Of course, true fans of vintage Honda scooters will gladly point out you’re riding a modern bike, but the styling is authentic enough to fool the masses.

The Monkey is slated to return in October

The Monkey is slated to return in October, with the Super Cub hitting dealers in January 2019. With the retro look taking over Honda’s motorcycles, that might mean there’s a case for the retro-styled Urban EV concept the company debuted at the Frankfurt motor show.
