As the Super Cub fast approaches its 60th birthday, looking back we can see that the world has become a much different place, và the environment for motorcycles has also undergone momentous changes over the ensuing years. However, while the basic silhouette of the Super Cub has remained very much the same over the years, its internals have steadily evolved in close step with the changing times.

As warming came lớn be a worldwide concern, even the comparatively nominal emissions produced by motorcycles began khổng lồ be subjected khổng lồ regulations. Of course, efforts had been made before lớn clean up exhaust emissions, but lớn conform with new regulations adopted by nhật bản in 1999, the Super Cub 50 was given new carburetor settings and a crankcase emissions control system.

The following year, the same refinements were applied to lớn the Super Cub 90 lớn reduce emissions, however not lớn the Super Cub 70. This brought to an end the long run of the C65, which had been in continuous production since its first debut in 1964.

2006 emissions regulations were said to be the toughest ever for motorcycles, leading khổng lồ many motorcycles disappearing from the lineup altogether. Yet, with the adaption of a PGM-FI electronic fuel injection system và a catalyser element built into its exhaust pipe, the Super Cub 50 series still managed lớn meet these strict new regulations.

While the exterior kiến thiết of the Super Cub 50’s engine maintained essentially the same traditional horizontal proportions, its interior thiết kế underwent radical alterations, including an offset cylinder và roller rocker arms, in order to continue operating smoothly well into the 21st century.



EngineThe Super Cub’s new computer- controlled PGM-FI electronic fuel injection system maintained an optimal fuel supply, making it easier lớn start on cold winter mornings, while its exhaust pipe catalyser further improved emissions. The engine’s black-painted crankcase covers had been a feature since the Red Cub was introduced in 1982.

The Super Cub 110 (JA07) appeared in 2009 as the newest mã sản phẩm in the lineup following the Super Cub 90. It represented a major step forward with its newly designed backbone frame, a new oil jet positioned under the engine’s piston to lớn reduce temperatures and improve durability, and a two-stage clutch to minimize shift shock, as well as other minor improvements.

Already a model, this Super Cub was centered on the ASEAN region, with major components such as part of the frame & the engine being procured from Honda thái lan to be assembled in Honda’s main motorcycle production facility, the Kumamoto Factory. Traditional elements of the Super Cub that had long been much loved in japan were also incorporated, including the round kiến thiết of its headlight & the height of its rear carrier, which was the same as that of the Super Cub 90.

EngineAs Japan’s first small motorcycle, the Super Cub 90’s engine was upgraded to 110cc, which by then had become Honda’s mainstay in the ASEAN region. A new jet of oil lớn cool its piston assured the same durability và reliability as the earlier 90cc engine while greatly enhancing its power nguồn output và torque, as well as improving fuel economy.

In 2012, the Super Cub 110 was completely restyled as a so-called ‘ Cub,’ with a single standardized design for the entire world. This was carried out in consideration of the expected future integration of noise và emissions regulations worldwide, as well as to lớn create a new base for further potential improvements.

The Japanese domestic Super Cub 110 also changed accordingly, adopting a squarish headlight và turn indicators, and taking on a more angular rather than curved design. The Super Cub’s Japanese specifications maintained the same 695mm carrier height as earlier versions, while extending its wheelbase in order lớn enhance straight line stability.

Featuring prominently in this shift to becoming a ‘ Model’ was a 20,000 yen reduction in the Super Cub’s price (excluding tax).

Bringing together Super Cub fans from around the country, this new model—uniquely designed to lớn set the future direction of the Super Cub—was revealed.

The word ‘Cross’ here refers lớn the crossover of daily life and leisure. Its kiến thiết emphasized outdoor fun, with red or yellow bodywork, a shallower steel front fender, an additional right-side sidestand bracket và other features that closely resembled those of the CT, or ‘Hunter Cub’.

After appearing again at a motorcycle show in March of 2013, the Cross Cub officially went on sale in June of that year, embodying the same sense of fun that had long been a feature of the CT110 since its first debut in nhật bản in 1981.

Front WheelThe Cross Cub’s 17-inch front wheel was the same as the original Super Cub’s, although fitted with 2.75 inch wide tires inherited from the era of leisure-oriented Cubs, such as the 1964 CT200 Trail 90. Its rear drum brake was also increased in diameter khổng lồ 130mm.
