It’s the machine that changed motorcycling in America and that put the whole world on two wheels. And now Honda has made the Super Cub 125 available in Thailand.
The Honda Super Cub was the right bike at the right time, and now it’s back in a thoroughly modern version, the right bike for the way we ride today.

Sure, you’ll love the classic look, but underneath that timeless bodywork, it’s packed with plenty of modern features.
And what made it great then still makes it great now: it’s affordable, practical, and just the right size for a wide variety of riders.
But the real reason why the Super Cub was and is such a success is that it’s just so much fun.
125cc fuel-injected engine
Nobody can match Honda’s reputation for engines, and even though the Super Cub is relatively compact, it’s a giant in terms of performance and reliability.
Easy to park
Because the Super Cub is compact, it’s easy to park in the city and store when you’re not riding. There’s always room for a Super Cub!
Hydraulic front disc brake
The Super Cub features a 220mm front single disc brake for excellent stopping power. There’s even standard front-wheel ABS.
Four-speed semi-automatic transmission
The Super Cub features a four-speed semi-automatic transmission that you shift with your left foot, like a traditional motorcycle. But here’s the unique feature: there’s no clutch to worry about—you toe and go.
Electric seat opener
Need to release the seat latch for a fill-up? Just press a button—the lock is all electronically controlled on the Super Cub.
Old-school light bulbs may have been great in 1959, but 60 years later, the Super Cub comes with a modern LED lighting package.
Just like our top-of-the-line Gold Wing, the Super Cub uses a convenient smart-key ignition.
Step through chassis
It is one of the key design elements which made the original Cub so famous. The Super Cub’s step-through design incorporates frontal bodywork to help shield you from the wind and road splash.
It’s not only super convenient but makes it easy to get on and off the bike.
Low seat height
At just 30.7 inches, the Super Cub’s super-low seat makes it easy to flat-foot it in parking lots or at stoplights.
Multifunctional digital dash
Retro meets modern in the Super Cub’s instruments. The faired-in handlebar-mounted features speedometer, odometer, A&B trip meters, fuel gauge, clock, and indicator for low/high beam.
The Super Cub’s round headlight looks retro, but its LED performance is totally up to date and provides superior illumination and visibility.
Underseat fuel tank
With its 1.0-gallon fuel tank and excellent fuel efficiency, the Super Cub is super practical. The tank filler is under the seat, so it’s easy to access.
Our front-wheel Anti-Lock Braking System (which comes standard on the Super Cub) can be a big help in making controlled stops in less-than-ideal conditions, like on wet pavement or other compromised surfaces.
It’s a great feature whether you’re using your new bike as a commuter or just riding it for fun since it helps you stop with added confidence.
17-inch cast wheels
Big enough to roll along smoothly, the machine-finished cast construction on these wheels means they’re easier to keep clean than the traditional spoke construction.
The Super Cub’s telescopic front suspension comes partially faired in, blending with the upper bodywork. It looks fantastic and works a lot better than the original leading-link design.
Here’s another thoroughly modern touch: The Super Cub uses tubeless tires.
Twin rear shocks
The original Cub had twin shocks, and so does the 2021 Super Cub. They not only look proper, but they also do a great job of smoothing out the road.
However Honda Thailand has not revealed the price.
