Honda’s City Scooting Super Cub Returns For 2020

Honda’s coolest urban runaround returns for 2020! With so much interest in the 2019 model, Honda has decided to bring back the Super Cub C125 for another year. Many Super Cub enthusiasts were left disappointed last year since the Cub sold out ridiculously quickly, but fans can rejoice: 2020 will bring more of them.

Mechanically, nothing has changed between the 2019 and 2020 model. The Super Cub C125 is powered by the same compact 124.9cc air-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke engine which produces 9.1 horses of peak power and 7.7 lb-ft of peak torque. Thanks to the four-speed gearbox and centrifugal clutch, the Cub is easy to ride, with enough power to cruise the city streets but not too much that it overwhelms users. ABS comes as standard too.

Weighing in at 240 lbs, and with a manageable seat height of 30.7 lbs, the Super Cub is an ideal choice for those looking for easy-to-use, economical, and fun transportation—which is exactly what Honda had in mind when they released the first incarnation of the Cub back in 1958!

For 2020, the Super Cub C125 will be available in a cool Pearl Nebula Red.

2020 Honda Super Cub C125 ABS Features

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 to 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 just 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.

LED LIGHTING

Old-school light bulbs may have been great in 1959, but 60 years later the Super Cub comes with a modern LED lighting package.

SMART KEY

Just like our top-of-the-line Gold Wing, the Super Cub uses a convenient smart-key ignition.

STEP-THROUGH CHASSIS

This is one of the key design elements which made the original Cub so popular. 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 stop lights.

MULTI-FUNCTION DIGITAL INSTRUMENTS

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.

ROUND HEADLIGHT

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 awesome fuel efficiency, the Super Cub is super practical. The tank filler is under the seat so it’s easy to access.

STANDARD ABS

Our front-wheel Anti-Lock Braking System (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.

FRONT SUSPENSION

The Super Cub’s telescopic front suspension is partially faired in, blending with the upper bodywork. It looks awesome, and works a lot better than the original leading-link design.

TUBELESS TIRES

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 2020 Super Cub. They not only look proper, but they also do a great job of smoothing out the road.
